I'm back. I am still adjusting but officially I am back. Just wondering where my chef and waiter are? What's for dinner tonight. Is my bed made up and where are the chocolates? Oh.......I am back to the real world. That's okay too. I missed my Hubby and my doggies.
This is a picture of my best friend and moi. It is a picture of a picture. I have worked all day on trying to post my friends pictures. I didn't take many. Even though at times I didn't think my friend should be asking other people to take pictures, I am glad that she did. Since the pictures were $20 each and all 8 by 10's.........I only bought two.
Anywhoo.........seeing my friend and spending time with her and her family was just nice. I miss her since she moved to Florida. No worries, I won't be moving south. Too much heat for me. I like my hills and seasons.
Our cruise was really great. We had a wonderful time. I walked my legs off. Luckily the headaches and the back aches stayed away. I was able to stay Gluten -free the entire time. My legs and hips got tired from all the walking but I think I did great considering I didn't do anything the three weeks pior due to my back injury. I did NOT do well with the heat. Like I have said before, it bothers me. Crowds, heat, humidity combined together isn't a good thing for me. My friend went ahead with those activities while I choose not to. The food was unbelievable. I think I did well not gaining weight because I had less options than the others. The chefs were able to fix me the GF meals.
Celebrating our birthdays onboard was fun. I did miss calls from my Hubby and my children. But, I did buy myself some little birthday gifts.
The evening shows were fun, different and so Disney. I had fun people watching. Lots of grumpy parents and kids not behaving. Easy to judge when we were without children. We were seated with two other couples that we really enjoyed.
The staff onboard was all international. They are so friendly and willing to help. They didn't understand English very well as I didn't understand them either. I did go to a station and asked if this mousse looking desert was GF. The guy just smiled and started handing me all the desserts out of the case, hah. I found them a new home.
We only had one rough day at sea and it was the last one. The Capt. had been avoiding the rough weather but had to get back on the route to return to Florida.
We had two stops....Nassau (where I took the ship picture) and their private island, Castaway Cay. The Cay is the last picture.
We didn't dress in our clown costumes. The festivities were too close to our dinner times. It was a crazy busy party. It was their first Halloween at the Seas. It make need a little tweaking. Pirate night was a blast. They even had fireworks.
My flights to and from Florida were interesting to say the least. I volunteered to be bumped on the way there. I waited til they were offering a $400 voucher. Say hello to my next Colorado trip. On the way home my second flight was delayed three hours......not so good. I almost missed getting on my first flight to Washington Dulles. I thought they were saying Dallas. Believe me it sounded identical. Luckily I looked at my flight number. I wasn't the last on the place but close. I am blaming on my early wake up time. (To and fro I had to get up at 4 a.m.)
I will share more pictures when I can figure out how.
All in all it was all that I wanted it to be and more.
OWL SWAPPERS.......I will be in touch later this week. I can still take signups for a second group.
I missed reading my blogs and I am trying to catch up.
Disney Hugs to All
(Not sure why Mickey got down on his knees)
