I looked up Labadee on Wikipedia, not a very pleasant description.
Oh, it looks lovely! Here it is rainy and dark now.
wow, that's pretty neat! love your header photo, too. :)
Mark,Yes, Labadee is on the island of Haiti where there is severe poverty and where there was a huge earth quake a few years back. Royal Caribbean provides food, clothing, and shelter to the people of Haiti as well as offering employment. When the earth quake happened, it was considered to not visit there with ships any more, however the Haitian government asked that we come back because our rent, visits, employment opportunities, and income from sales of local merchandise are so important to them. Royal Caribbean and its employees have contributed even more food, clothing, and assistance in recent years. Schools have been built using resources from the ships, farming projects started, etc. So, I am not at all unhappy about visiting Labadee and commend Royal Caribbean for the time, money, materials, and love they have contributed to help the people who live there.Lois
Very pretty there!
P.S. I really your Header too!
Beautiful place Lois and fascinating to see the passengers making their way to the island on that long walkway.
