And then it was Geoffís turn.















Coming in for the toe dip.



Touch Down!





It appears they went up fairly high and they said each turn was a good amount of time. They both enjoyed this quite a bit and were very happy they did this. I still think it looks scary, but there is a part of me that wants to try it. That crazy part that I keep locked up and the key hidden!


It was time for us to get off the ship and head to our Port Adventure. I think Rob had to run back to the room for something, so Gail, Claire, Alexis and I got off and walked slowly.





We grabbed some towels to take along and spotted some characters, but the girls did not want to stop.



Um I swore we got pony tails holders for the girls, but obviously we didnít put them in their hair at this point.





It was sad to see the brown up close, but I knew the island would bounce back soon.



And then we spotted him! My boyfriend, my future husband, the man I am leaving Skip for Ö..Captain Jack Sparrow.



I was informed I was not allowed to stop and see him at this point. The line was too long. What kill joys!

Hi Honey!





I did however stop at the little hut to inquire about the jet ski excursion.



I didnít have many people in front of me, but they were so slow, asking so many useless questions. Well they were useless because they didnít pertain to what I needed! LOL

Finally I got up there and was told that the jet ski sign up was actually right up next to the jet skis. UGH. Wasted time!

I did however have the girls stand for a picture.



I think Rob did catch up with us at this point and we were off. We now were getting a little too close to our own port adventure time and needed to make some tracks.

I just did 4 updates!. I am busy tomorrow so I knew if I didn't get any up now, it could be a couple of days before I got to it again. I wish I was going on a cruise in 10 days. LOL I will be leaving in just over a week though for hopefully warmer parts and I am excited!

The update lady strikes again!

I love all the updates, nothing better to start your Friday with then LOADS of DREAM and CC pics.
I really enjoy seeing your photos, Jen. And I admire you so much that you get up so early to be able to get up on deck.
We NEVER find out of bed THAT early.

Jen - I think I have that same crazy part. As cool as parasailing is, I am a bit too scared to try it. But I want to. I'm so torn. It's like being bipolar. Given the expense, its easy for me to disregard something I am terrified of.

Beautiful pictures. Let's see - exactly how many memory cards am I going to need for my cruise trip?????? A lot!!!!!!!!!!!!

I especially love the parasailing pics. You did a great job with them - very memorable.

OK - bring on that island. I am ready.

I went zip lining once in Wisconsin Dells with a big group of my family, I honestly thought they were going to have to push me off of that platform (when I got to to top of the stairs I was seriously questioning my sanity, plus watching my 9 year old child do it added to my anxiety). My child loved the zip line, however he says no way to parasailing! Lol!!!,

Loved all the photos. Graham and I are both terrified of heights, but in a moment of madness, we signed up for the parasailing and absolutely loved it. It was so calm and peaceful up there. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Jetskis on the other hand I would never ever go near to again. I ended up falling off just in front of the Flying Dutchman and as I have very little upper body strength, I could not get on again. Fortunately I was doing doubles with Graham and he went on and the parasailing boat came to pick me up. I had a fun hour talking to the staff from the tour operator. That is how I knew they are an outside company and where they come from.

It nearly broke my heart that the girls passed up Stitch. He is definitely the second biggest love of my life. I can't wait to see him again.

All caught up. Wow. I love looking at all your pictures. Really makes me want to go on a cruise. When I win the lottery. Paying double for just me does not interest me at all!

I wish I was really starting my Friday there.

Well don't get used to all the updates, because i don't have anything else written up at all to do more.

I love getting up early on vacation. So much to do and too little time.

Exactly! bipolar is a good way to way to describe my feelings on parasailing. And cost is a good excuse for me too.
I can't take credit for those pictures those. Geoff and Pete took all the parasailing ones with Geoff's camera.
I took a lot of memory with me this time. i didn't use it all, but I used A LOT!

EEK! Another thing that looks neat and completely scarey too. I think I would need a push as well.

I do love jet skiing. And ex boyfriend used to own some and we used to go ride them all the time. But that was many years ago.
