Every little girl has a dream & mine was to become a published writer. I recently reached that goal by having a short story that I wrote published in an arts & literary magazine. I also hope to have a novella or book published. I am currently writing paranormal historical romance along with crime-mystery type stories, both for young adults. I’ll still have interviews & contests, plus review books, so please join me on my journey. God bless you all. ~Cynde Bond Hammond, author
Hi, everyone! It's been so long since I've posted that I have almost forgotten how to do it.
Well, "we're baaaa-aaaack!" We had a fabulous time and it was so romantic!
The weather was absolutely perfect the entire time we were in the Caribbean and everyone was so nice to us. The foldable cane that my husband, Dion, bought for me to use on the trip really helped me a lot. I don't think I could have made it without having it.
Here are a few photos from our trip, just to whet your whistles:
This is our view from the ship at Ft. Lauderdale, FL. ~ You can see another cruise ship off in the distance, ready to set sail.
I just had to show you this odd little storm out to sea. The little storm clouds got so close to us at one point, we could almost touch them, but we didn't catch it on film ~ it happened so fast we didn't realize what was happening!
Then, almost as fast as it came upon us, the sun appeared and whisked it away. I hope you can see what I mean when looking at these photos. It was all so vivid out there on the deep, blue sea...
Here's one of the beautiful white, sandy beaches that we got to visit. Isn't it gorgeous? The weather was perfect and the water temperature couldn't have been more ideal.
This is a close-up of that same beach. If I didn't know better, I would have thought it was like that Chevy Chase movie where he paid everyone in the town to act perfect during the Christmas season so that he and his wife could sell their home and get a divorce.
And then, "Oh, joy!" This is the sight we came home to when we drove in to our driveway at our home, sweet, home. I must add that we were glad to get home, though, because afterall, there's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home...
Well, everyone, aside from our trip, I've been busy writing. I took a class at the Writer's Village University and it was awesome. I'm so glad I joined there! I've made lots of new friends and joined a critique group for the first time in my life, and I've learned so much from them. I should have joined a critique group a long time ago, but to tell you the truth, I was too shy. But now that I've taken the plunge, and the Lord lead me to the perfect people, I see that it's not so bad afterall.
I'll write again as soon as I can. And I promise it won't take me five months this time!
Until next time...stay safe, stay well, and may the Lord bless you all.
