Surprisingly, I don't think PP really takes up much beach space. They kind of do it like a pie shape, angled in toward the beach and wider out at the slide.....

As for Kara's Cay, just bring me a bottle and I'll provide the ice for all of us!!!

Another day closer......

This morning Ally opened the door to let the dog out and she came in and said, "Mama, it's not just chilly outside, it's COLD!" It was about 60 out.... but we are not winter people, so 60 really IS cold to us!!!

I wanted Al to get her hair done too. Nope, nothing doing. She saw it being done, decided it "looked" like it might hurt and nixed my plans.

She doesn't let me have any fun at all anymore.

Sorry to disappoint you but DH and I are going to win the Euromillions Lottery tonight and buy Castaway Cay - it'll be called Gary and Joh's Very Own Paradise Island. We'll let you visit if you're good though

Great update - is it me or is Allie getting more freckles by the day

Not sure if I will be doing the Pelican Plunge - I can't seem to do a water slide without screaming like a girl - and then surely you just end up with a mouthful of salt water - ugh! I am looking forward to seeing the changes to the island since our last visit though, although I suspect we will be spending a large proportion of our time on Serenity Bay

Great pics of Castaway Cay! I love that place! We tried Pelican Plunge in July and I thought it was a bit too fast, but DS12 loved it!

A) YOU can't win the lottery because WE are winning the lottery!!
B) Yes, she gets lots more freckles in the summertime. Also her hair gets the most beautiful white blonde highlights from swimming.
C) Bawk bawk bawk!!!!

We had a 3 story water slide at our community pool in Florida - it was waaaaaay faster and twistier. It was not uncommon to see adults complaining they hurt their backs after a trip or two down THAT one!

Great update! I'm less than 6 months away now!

Kara - don't even mention the "S" word until November up here!

Wilma can win the UK lotto, you can win the SC one, and I am going to win the OH one tonight! We can all buy our own islands around CC, and wave to the cruise ships as they sail by.

The DIS moms & all us groupies can all come and party hop from island to island. But mine will be the best, as i plan to "borrow" Captain Jack and hold him hostage!

I love your reference to sand in places it shouldn't be! On our cruise in June our DD couldn't wait to get back on the ship-her exact words were "I have sand in places sand should never be!" I did feel bad for her because she looked so funny walking around. For our March cruise we get 2 days at CC. I have no idea how she's going to handle that. Maybe she will choose to spend some time in the kids club on the ship. That gives DH and I more time at Serenity Bay.

Looking forward to hearing about the rest of the cruise, although there isn't much left

I wanted Claire to get cornrows too, but she refused. My mom and I both kept trying to tempt her and brive her and still she said no. LOL!
