People were standing on the deck of the ship bobbing and waving at their loved ones on land. I heard the sound of children's laughter and the excitement of the people that are headed on this Caribbean cruise.
I would like to go but work keeps me here. My brother and I waved at our parents as they excitedly waved goodbye. I could smell the salt from the sea heavy in the air.
I heard the ship's horn as it signaled it's departure. The ship became smaller as I watched it leave port and my parents fade out of sight.
