Weekly Writing Challenge – Threes

Recently, Michelle wrote a great post on how to tell a story in three photographs. We loved the idea so much, we used it as the subject of the “threes” photo challenge. Today, we’re going to look at the idea of threes for a third time. (So cubist!) In this week’s writing challenge, you’ll write a post using three photographs for inspiration.


You can choose to write a post inspired by a response to the “Threes” photo challenge, or you can write your post based on three photos you supply.

I obviously chose my own three photographs to tell my story. While I have written a few posts about our cruise adventure there are certainly many more stories to relate from our five day adventure. I found the process of disembarking the ship and securing transportation from the port over to the beach to be an interesting adventure.

Imagine at least two thousand people suddenly arriving and desiring transport from point A to point B. Now multiply this by three due to three cruise ships being in harbor at the same time. While this may seem an overwhelming ordeal, obviously the infrastructure has grown with time in anticipation of the need. I say this because the operation went off without a hitch.

As soon as our ship, the Carnival Celebration allowed people to leave the cadre of buses, vans and taxis were ready to ferry us over to the beach area. Our groups was only about thirty young people and chaperons, but We had to break up into three groups because most of the vans only held a dozen or so passengers. These vans were all makes and models, certainly not a uniform fleet. It was obviously a free enterprise deal where whatever would start and roll was good enough.

I can’t say what the experience of riding a chartered bus for fourteen hours was for the teenage members of our group, but for me it was one of the most uncomfortable experiences of my life. Perhaps my age is making me less accommodating, but I just could not find a comfortable way to endure this trip. We traveled the most of this time overnight, which should lend itself to passing the time counting sheep. Unfortunately I did not. So having a chance to actually get on the cruise ship to walk and walk from the drop off point near the beach over to the beach was a welcome bit of exercise.

Both beaches we visited on this Bahamas trip were gorgeous. The white sand and clear blue Caribbean waters were just as vibrant as I remember from two decades before. I would definitely recommend visiting if you get the chance.
