Back to the cruise. Our first stop was in Labadee, Haiti.
Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of it but here is one that I googled.
We also shopped a little on the shore. The people of Haiti are so poor and so annoying about trying to get you to buy things. I felt completely mobbed by all the merchants I wanted to get out of there as fast as possible. I did buy a sword for Jack and they carved his name in it, and a dress for Lizzy which she loves. I probably could have bargained better but honestly they are so poor I felt bad for the shops.
Haiti really is a beautiful island. The water was amazing. We learned that snorkels do not float. Justin tried to throw one to Brandon, the throw was short, the snorkel sunk to the bottom, there was no retrieving it as it landed in the drop off area with about 20 feet below. Oh well, it's funny to think about now. It is a little scary though, a lot of men with big guns guarding the area. All the stops were similar and it just made me glad to be an American and to live in such a safe place.
