The view from our balcony
Lots of boats to look at
Got to get a thick coat of sunscreen on before you go out in the sun.
Here are some victims attempting to get back into the boat after snorkeling.
This was a really easy ladder because it goes pretty deep into the water.
We saw some cool rock formations on the way back to the dock.
The water was very clear and blue.
 
Here's the crowd on the boat.  There was no run and no music on the way back, so no dancing.  However the view along the way of the islands and water was breath taking.
Snorkeling was good, but the best part of this port was this famous establishment.

We hadn't planned to do any shopping, and we had even gone back to the ship for lunch when Karen saw a lady walk by with a Margaritaville Grand Turk straw hat and we realized that we had to get back off the ship.  We had an hour, and we made the most of it.

Nice bird.  Very colorful.  I think he likes Margaritas.
Here's the entire front including the required gift shop.
Don't you just want to be here?

The pool looked perfect.

By this time, Lou is getting very thirsty but we are running out of time.  Can Lou suck down a Margarita before heading back to the ship?
Lou recalls that at the Key West Margaritaville, you can walk up to the window and get a Margarita To Go.
So Lou goes up to the bar and asks the bartender if he can have a Margarita to go.  The bartender says "Sure!" 

Lou gets a very tasty yummy delicious awesome spectacular refreshing frozen Margaritaville Margarita in a plastic go cup.  YUM!!!

See, I told you this bird likes Margaritas.
