Sand Through My Toes

My big adventure in the sand

Back to Reality… Stateside

Welcome Aboard

Welcome Aboard – Majesty of the Seas

Yes, reality from cruising the ocean blue to reality of another 9 days of vacation! A fantastic three days cruising towards Coco Cay with a day at Nassau in the Bahamas. On the ship, loved having a sea view room even though not in the room long enough to enjoy it!  But the short time in it getting ready, nice to see the sea!  Plus, my stateroom was decked out 

Welcome to Your State Room, enjoy chocolate covered strawberries!!

with a belated “Happy Birthday” sign on the door, birthday banner, and to boot, chocolate covered strawberries along with red velvet cupcakes!   Thanks Dad and Dee for a true post birthday month celebration!!

Familiarized ourselves with the ship on Friday, enjoyed a beverage on the upper deck for our bon voyage wave, participated in a game of Bingo (damn, no luck), super dinner and then off to the casino for a bit of gambling — nope, not my day for winning!!  Saturday was a day at our private island, Coco Cay — you would think if a bird shit on my hand and sprayed a bit of it on the side of my face while I was eating lunch, I would have some good luck — well, I am throwing that theory out the window b/c once again at Bingo and in the casino later that evening, lost again at both!!  Sunday, since my best friend and I had already done Atlantis on Paradise Island, we opted to be true tourists and shop a bit (came back with nothing — oh sorry, one item) and enjoy the atmosphere of Senor Frogs!  Ah, to taste “The Yard” of beverages and bop around to the dance music, always a good time!! 

Thirsty - needed not just one yard but two yards!

I had a wonderful time with my parents and my best friend and only wish it could have been a 7 day adventure at sea! Here a few pics of the three days……

Love a lighthouse to help guide the way, plus the crystal clear blue water!
