Flora and fauna of the different islands

It's Thursday! Don't forget to enter the giveaway for the homemade coasters by the lovely Allison of Moments Like This. It ends tomorrow so click here to check out the post and enter! I am continuing my vacation post, I have one more after this. Thank you all for sticking through with me on my vacation post. Hope you have enjoyed them all and thought about visiting the Caribbean one day if you haven't already. Some of you have mentioned which islands you have visited and told me great stories about visiting with family or getting engaged or married!
I appreciate each of you taking the time to share with me!

One aspect I wanted to feature about my vacation is all the different types of flora and fauna of all the four islands I visited. Seriously, there were some greenery that I had never seen and I was very interested in all of them. Here are a few photos of the varieties that I saw listed with the island that I found them at, enjoy!

aw, you have me wanting to be back on our honeymoon cruise. it was truly a trip that we'll remember for a lifetime. I can't wait 'til we can return to the caribbean one day! funny how being on a cruise makes you feel so removed from reality! glad you enjoyed yourself.

Brittany said...

CRUISES are the best!! Haha, the small showers absolutely crack me up....for spring break this year we had such high waves that I kept banging into the sides of the shower as our boat rocked like crazy! Thanks for the follow, btw!

Gorgeous room! I did a cruise with my 4 girlfriends and we had three people in one room (not nearly as nice or big as yours) and two in another room. It was totally a blast. I hope to do a cruise with my hubby someday! We traveled to Mexico - Progresso and Cozumel. Hubby and I honeymooned in Playa Mujeres almost a year ago now!

Oh how fun! I love cruises! I just went on a northern European one last summer! Is this a Royal Carribean cruise line? The top deck looks familiar! I've been on a few! :) So want to do another! FUN!
