Your breakfast adventure is too funny! I can totally see me doing the same thing and my DH shaking his head the same way!!!!

Wet thigh thingy? Been there, done that.... at Blizzard Beach actually! I hope it didn't get too bad and you didn't suffer after the fact!

Great pix, Ellen!

Absolutley awesome trip report! You have officially convinced me that we need to go on a Disney Cruise.

DH, my parents and I were supposed to go to Disney World this past December but due to an irritating series of events had to cancel. I told my mom we would need to try to make it again next year but after just a few of your posts I told her to forget Disney World let's go on a Disney Cruise! She is onboard and we are planning on December 2010.

I am getting sad knowing that your report is coming to a close as it helps me get through my tedious day trapped in my office with no ocean views

I loved reading about the bike ride. I've often thought that it might be nice to do, but didn't really know what there was to see. I never even knew about the tower! That's definitely a nice place to get some pics. Thanks for sharing that...I think we'll have to take a bike ride in September just to check it out!
I can't believe that the report is coming to a close. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your report!
Yes, go for the bike ride- you will have a whole new additional perspective of CC when you do! Besides, it's just fun to discover stuff.

The impromptu biking adventure looked like great fun! Sometimes, it is those unplanned moments that are most memorable. That will be a great memory that you and DS9 will always share together.....and you really can't put a price tag on something like that.
Alan, you're so sweet! I used to take a TON of photos with an SLR camera, I was really into it. But then i was bitten by the digital bug, and I now just have the point and shoots. (Right before the digital craze began, DH had given me a Canon Elan 7e with some very nice lenses, cha-ching!!! So I'm putting off the puschase of another SLR for maybe another year.) Anyway, it's always nice to hear they come out ok, because you give up all the control the SLR offers when you use them. Have you ever looked at the pics on the photography board?? OMG!!!!

And I agree- sometimes the unplanned events in a trip become some of the biggest and best memories! Hard for all of us ocd planners to remember!

I just kept apologizing and apologizing to those servers- I felt like SUCH a moron!!!!

And I had fire thighs BIG TIME....the walk from where we were on the beach to the post office was a hike- and I was there and back twice. Only the first trip wasn't painful!! Next time I'm wearing shorts!!

That is EXCELLENT!!! Great for you!!! Wow, I feel so powerful. Just to be safe, you'd better bring me along so I can help influence you throughout the cruise!!

Don't be sad!! I'll be writing about St John in a couple of weeks....and then another all-girls trip in May...and a family reunion in HHI in August...and WDW in November....maybe a trip with DH next fall... the tr's are endless......

Beautiful pictures, Ellen! I know I've been a slacker, but I'm all caught up. And I can't believe it's almost over!

Ok, so really, what happened with the breakfast? Was there really food under all of those covers? It looked gooooood!

I love the shot of the cruise ship in the distance - looks like it's sitting on the trees!

ps - did Pods go to the game on Sunday?

Yes- there was really food under those covers- and I took the pic AFTER we sent 2 plates of pancakes and like 4 plates of eggs and 2 or 3 plates of toast back- plus, I think, a bowl of fruit!! And, FWIW, I had ordered this all BEFORE we went to Palo, so you can't even blame intoxication- I am this stupid sober!!! That is what's REALLY embarrassing!

Yes, Pods was at the Giants game on Sunday. How disappointing a game was that? Really, though, as I said on your thread, it means we'll be able to stay out more on Sunday night in St John- last year we stayed home and watched the Giants win the playoffs when we were there-



My DGF, Jane, found the game very exciting- A true Giants fan!



Pods was just a little happy when they won-



Ahhh well...this year they'll just have to watch the playoffs in whatever bar we crawl into!

A final show and dinner...sniff sniff....

Back in the cabin, the kids showered and watched tv, while I began the looooonnnngggg process of packing up- the ONLY thing making the packing a little easier was knowing that tomorrow we would be going to WDW- well, that and the fact that on Thursday of the cruise we had rebooked for another western on Oct 30, 2010! That really helped- probably would have helped more if we were going sooner, but still a very, very good thing!!

Anyway, after I packed most of the stuff, I showered and DS9 and I headed to the WDT for the final show- Til we meet again. This was a combo of some of the acts we had seen during the week (comedians, magicians) and the characters in a musical production.



Cindy is still my favorite-





Then some comedy- the Tinkerbell DVD had just been released- but it turns out there's one more new fairy ready to take on the world by storm- the REDNECK FAIRY!



Has anyone met him yet with the other fairies in the Magic Kingdom? Oh boy.









Wow- fireworks again!



A nice show, but I don't think it cheered anyone up!

Til We Meet Again Dinner

Once again, we were in Parrot Cay for dinner. But, of course, we would be enjoying yet another menu to celebrate the evening. Ranzil & Christian came over to take the drink order, and DS9 just said, "You know" and DS11 got a last strawberry smoothie-





I wanted to try the Artichoke Dip with Sweet onion mayonaisse and focaccia toast-



Very yummy! DS9 ordered some chicken soup from the kids menu-



DS11 had a chilled seafood medley-



he ate all of it but the smoked salmon. DH had Romaine salad with Artichoke chips served with a bacon wrapped date and caesar dressing-



Our table neighbor, who I called Debbie because I REALLY think she looks like my neighbor,Debbie, didn't get a date on her salad- so they brought her one. Our servers seemed a little distracted tonight, and we learned it was because they had a table of 8 or 10 added this last evening. At the end of the meal, one of those passengers came over to tell us how lucky we were to have had Ranzil & Christian all week- whoever they had had all week was not good, they were not happy, and finally said something and were switched to our guys- who they ADORED! Of course... Anyway, here are our table neighbors, I am so happy we got to sit next to them all week!



Debbie...I mean, Mindy-



I really enjoyed her company. The two of us took so many food photographs that week it was like we were the DCL cuisine paparazzi! By the way, Mindy and one of her girls had gone parasailing on CC, and she was over the moon about it- We will have to do that next time!!

Back to the food! DH ate this delicious Seafood Linguini Pasta with Lobster (the tiniest pieces!) scallops, shrimp, clams and asparagus in a shrimp tarragon sauce-



And the rest of us had Grilled Beef Tenderloin served with William Potato, asparagus spears, and bernaise sauce-



Remember a million posts ago I said DS11 had baked alaska in bed? I was wrong- it was something else! Sorry!! Tonight was the big baked alaska parade!



See the woman in the last pic between the two servers? Wearing a striped shirt? None other than....Jenny2!!!



All the servers marched with their flags-



Christian-



Ranzil-



Too many desserts in the next post!
