haha I didn't notice that!

and now for more....

we got off the first tram and walked to the second, soaking it all in




family beach


we gt on the second tram and were finally at Serenity Bay! It was deserted!




first look at the crystal clear water


we walked a long way down the beach for some quiet and set up camp by two hammocks




the guys immediately had to test out the water




our little set up


We decided it was too hot to sit up on the beach so we brought the chairs to the water


My dad and I walked up to the bar to get the drink of the day




and we went back and I enjoyed my beverage in a hammock, which brings us to my favorite picture of the trip.

aaahhhh

much more to come!

Heather!! Just looking for a Wonder TR and here you are! I am really enjoying your cruise with you. So fun you could go with your parents. I'm so sorry to hear about the losses in Bobby's family and the stress that's happening. Always seems to be that way, I don't know why. I'll say a prayer for all of you. I'm looking forward to more - I want to be at Serenity Bay!!

I forgot to ask, where did your family get the t-shirts you wore the day you boarded the ship?

I made them! Someone on the design board made the art for me and I ironed them onto shirts!

so after relaxing for awhile, we started to smell BBQ. Lunch time!!! We walked back up the beach. It was so nice to have our own little adult restaurant and not have to wait for the tram back to the family beach to eat. My only complaint is the "open air' BBQ pit gives off TONS of smoke so when you are standing there waiting for your burger/hotdog etc you almost die of smoke inhilation! I did love sitting at the picnic tables under the trees though. Nice and shady, loved it!



they had fruit, hot dogs, hamburgers, salad, coft serve ice cream, all kinds of stuff. It was good and filling. After we ate we decided to take a ride up to the family beach to see what was going on, and to buy our souvineers. It was so nice not having to lug them around, they sent them back to the ship and we picked them up that evening in the gift shop. We got t-shirts that we wore on the last day.

family beach


shopping



I had to try on the hat!


We hung out at the beach awhile longer, then got really tired around 2:30 or 3 and decided to head back to the boat and get showered and cleaned up. After all, we had a whole other day to spend out here! Didn't want to burn out!






I loved this! they also had water for us to drink while we waited in line to get back on the ship.


We showered and headed to the adults only area, got a snack and sat down and relaxed. I loved the cushy chairs they had here!



my mom actually fell asleep but would kill me if I posted the picture I took of her asleep sitting up!

After awhile we decided it was time to go change for dinner.

Up next: EAT YOUR SALAD
