The Carriage Ride

Here are some more pictures from our little 4 day jaunt on the cruise ship before Christmas.

This was one of the tug boats that was docked at Nassau, Bahamas. I loved all of the ropes, the colors, the frayed ends - the whole thing. (You can click on the picture to get a larger view)

Tom was all excited when we arrived in Nassau. He wanted to get off the boat and seemed to have a trick up his sleeve. He was kind of giggly.

As we got closer he said "Let's go on a carriage ride!"

Now, this was rather confusing to me.

I'm allergic to horses. Really allergic. It's my main allergy.
and I forgot to bring my allergy tablets on the ship. So I asked him...

"These carriages - they aren't being pulled by horses, are they?"

Yep, sure are!

Well, I agreed to the 30 minute ride instead of the 60 minute ride. It was a foolish decision on my part, but after the ride we went to the pharmacy and I bought some allergy tablets to help me for the next few days. They weren't my prescription tablets, but they helped. I say it was foolish because I could have gotten quite ill, but I managed pretty well. I started sneezing the last 5 minutes of the ride and found a bathroom and washed up after we got out. We got a cute picture though - and a real nice ride in a carriage, which I have never done before and Tom got to go through with his secret little plan to do a romantic gesture.
