We rode all the way to the end...





Then pedaled over to Serenity Bay, so i could drool.....



where I saw Steve, my wine sharing tablemate reading a book in the shade of the bar. I asked him where Avery was, and he said all the teens were hangin out in the teen area together.





I informed Timmy of what steve had said, and SHOCK! Timmy pedaled faster than I thought possible to get rid of his bike (and his Mom, LOL) There they are all hangin out all teenager-ish-!



So I spent the rest of my CC day with my kindle on the beach....



I got hungry again, so ate some salads and fruit. The coleslaw was REALLY good-



Oh look! Someone else got blown off too!



I enjoyed a cone- I think it was mango-



If I remember correctly, you could swirl it with strawberry.

OOPS! Out of pics! To be continued later...

Thanks for taking the pics of the food at Cookies - I have never seen many pictures of it and didn't think there was much on offer, but it actually looks pretty decent.

Loving reading your report because we are SO close to our vacation now that it seems real. Leaving for WDW in less than a month and then the cruise a week later.
Glad you liked the foodie pics! It was early and everything (almost) was full, so I thought it was a good time for pics! You must be really excited for your vacation! I am- we leave one month from today for Cali!

I didn't realize that the sports court wasn't always there- the boys spend so much time on it, including on the Magic (2008 & 2010), it was a wonderful addition!

You're SUPPOSED to go to the left AGAINST the arrows??? Huh??? I cannot think of any scenario in which I wouldn't have followed the arrows to the right. WTH? People do stink sometimes. Glad no one was hurt!

Serenity Bay looks amazing and your afternoon looks so relaxing... despite being ditched.

THANK-YOU!!!! I feel much better now.

It was very relaxing....I should have headed back over to Serenity Bay, though. But I kept thinking "What if Timmy needs me?



I guess I really AM stupid!

I think Timmy just earned a new nickname..."Wrong Way Timmy." j/k Those other people are jerks and I can't believe the lady with the stroller.

Someday I should try biking but I never make it past Serenity Bay and the siren call of Konk Koolers.

I ride a bike all the time (OK - well, I used to ride a bike all the time back in my younger years) and you are definitely correct. Seriously, what is wrong with people?

Glad you got to dumb your teenager and enjoy some kindle time!

Wow - I'm pretty sure I would have understood the arrows to mean the same as you did. Regardless, there was no reason for those people to be so awful to Timmy. Holy cow!

I can't believe that woman freaked out like that. We always follow the signs. So odd that she thinks it would be different. Fuzzy Disney thinking?

I'll make sure we follow the arrows. I'm really looking forward to the bikeride around CC.

The food looks good too.

When is your trip to So Cal? There's a slim chance we'll be there Aug 17- 23.

The lady with the stroller acted so superior. "No. It's not one way. " She said it a few times. I wonder how she felt as she was walking over the arrows on her way out?? Like crap, is my hope!

Someday I should try biking but I never make it past Serenity Bay and the siren call of Konk Koolers.

I don't think I have ever had one! I know!! Sacrilege! I will do my best in January!

The woman was very full of herself. I felt like if I said the sky is blue, she would have said "No- it's orange." And I would have started to believe her...

Love my kindle- best invention EVER, especially for bringing a bunch of books with you on vacation. My book group is reading 1000 white women this month- I need to go download it....

I think they were just assuming he was the one screwing up because he was the kid, and clearly they knew everything as adults. Tim says after they screamed at him, their parting words of advice were "Ya need to watch where you're going, buddy." And he said he didn't say anything, but he thought, "And you need to watch where you're going when you are going the wrong way." But of course he didn't say that to them-

Yea- VERY fuzzy. And she was SO sure of herself. BIZARRE.

I have no doubt you will be able to read and follow arrows. You do seem smart like that.

The food looks good too.

When is your trip to So Cal? There's a slim chance we'll be there Aug 17- 23.
OHHHHH!!!!! I hope that happens!! Because we will be arriving at GCV August 21 until the 26th- so we would DEFINITELY overlap!!!! Oh PLEASE say it's so!! I've been dying to meet you, Jenny-girl, for a very long time!!

It was Kahlua, Bailey's and Grand Marnier. You layered with the sweetest from the bottom up and poured slowly and carefully over the back of a spoon. It was really challenging (especially with 20 people watching you!), but I did it! Three times, in fact! And MMMMMMM....was that shot GOOOOOOOD! Snow made some too!
Ive always wanted to try one, you would think I have since it included my 2 favorite ingredients!!

That was a REALLY fun class- I would book it again, and at $15, it was a great deal!
Nice, same prices still since 2008's cruise

A little later, after the show, which was the Magic Show (I did get to see it, after all! Loved it!) dinner was at RP- and I agree, Rosie- it is an awesome meal. To start, I ordered a bottle of wine to share....then I had some escargot-Escargots Gratinés
Herb-marinated Snails with Finely Chopped Mushrooms, topped with Garlic Butter and Breadstick
YUMM I LOVEEEE escargot!

Timmy ordered Iced Lobster and Jumbo Shrimp
White and Green Asparagus, Micro Greens and Lemon-dill dressing with Horseradish Cream
He ate every bite! He does love him some shrimp- Then he had Baked Farm-Raised Organic Chicken Breast
Filled with Escarole, Raisins and Pine Nuts on Wild Rice with a Red Wine reduction
someone was hungry..must have been all that wrong way biking LOL

Tonight- I spent more than an hour in there. A LOT more, lol! Two other CMs (One the DCL bev manager and the other an Epcot mgr) were at the Alex club too- those women attracted a bunch of visits from the crew- it was an interesting night! We all were enjoying the Moet Ice- and hangin with Alex- she really is the best bartender on the Dream.
SOO did you learn and good Disney dirt?

I promised Alex and the two other CMs I would NOT get off the ship alone- so, I went back to the cabin to get Timmy.
LOVE extra port night time

The tip they gave was to always put the sweetest liquor on the bottom, because the sweeter it is, the heavier it is. Hmmm..... bet there's a whole bunch of concoctions we could come up with-
Im not thinking of any concoctions Im just applying this to myself.. as in The sweeter I am the Heavier I am... hmm lol


Yea- but it was raining and the pic was stinky! I was so mad I didn't bring my monopod with me-
how do you like using a monopod, I have a tripod and really only use it for .. well graduations and school things to video and then when I do selfies of the family for xmas

[QUOTE=podsnel;48858677][COLOR="Navy"]
