This is one of my favorite photos...it sums me up!













This looked like a creature to me. Something from Dark Crystal or maybe Cousin It! Ha!







…and this reminded me of Grizzly Peak in Disneyland!











Now we started walking toward the water. Most of our group said that if we walked around, along the water’s edge and over the cliffs we could see an even better cave…so we followed them.







DH wasn't too into walking along the water..it was very slippery and covered in seaweed and there wasn't much of a gap between the edge and water. (DH can't swim) but he ended up coming!



and boy oh boy was it worth it






We found out later that they don't tell anyone about these caves because its not as safe to get too....oops

It was the best part of the trip so...i'm so glad we broke the rules!

We then had to run back because we were running a little late on our hour. Seriously....Disney needs to get rid of the food part, its not worth it.

We then drove a little ways back to a small grouping of stores we had passed and got another hour to walk around.





We did a little shopping in this store. (i'll post all my days purchases in the next post I have to take photos..)








I don't know what you would call the area...its not really a village because there aren't houses but it was really cute and peaceful.




these boats float in water half the time. obviously they can't go very far now! but they still looked cool.





and this is the aftermath of our adventure....technically we weren't suppose to bring soil back....this we couldn't really help tho!



After our shopping we took the long bus rideback. For some unknown reason we went back to the reversing falls...even though they weren't reversing it was a little more rough tho.


This is the train that some people took as an excursion...and demanded their money back!

Fantastic pictures!!!

Now I know what Saint John looked liked!!! It was so fogged in the entire day we were there. The picture you posted with the welcome sign from the boat....it was so foggy you couldn't read what it said!

Here's a link to some pictures (I've never figured out how to post a picture!). If you scroll through, you'll see how foggy it was that day.

Great update!

Great pictures of an amazing place! I'd love to see those sea caves! How weird to be walking on the ocean floor! How long does it take for the water to go to high tide? I'd be nervous about getting "caught" down in the caves! Funny that people dock their boats there where they can only use them part time!

I'm loving your pictures. It looked like a fabulous day. I would want to break the rules and see those caves too.
What is that big lens on your camera. I keep debating getting a new one. I just am cheap, so I put it off.

So cute how you got Duffy all ready for the evening to come!

Just looked at your cruise photos on Facebook and I had to do a double take when I saw "Paul n Michelle's Photos" on the album label. DH and I are going on the 9/7 cruise to Canada and we are also "Paul and Michelle".

Our cabin neighbors right next door were "Michele and Paul" and they were from our town! I knew her from school (our two youngest kids were in the same grade but different classrooms), but I never knew her name.

Have a wonderful trip! Pack warm clothes....it was cool in the evenings on the ship, especially walking on the outside decks.

Oh thats such a shame! It was gloomy when we first woke up but obviously it changed. Well now you'll have an excuse to go back!

Thanks! I think it was only a few hours...they have it planned perfectly so the tours don't go down there when it starts coming back but yeah that would be rather scary getting stuck and apparently the water is freezing. Yeah they look so weird just sitting on the ground like that!

Thanks! The lens i'm using is an 18-135. Its really great lens for when we travel. I also have a 75-200 but that one is impractical for trips like this. I'm not a big fan of having to change lens when we are out so I try an pick the best for the situation. We keep a fixed 50 on it most of the time. Well when your ready get exactly what you want because then you'll regret if after and want to buy another!

Thanks! Yes it really was! I'm so glad we choose that excursion!

DH made sure to get a pirate costume for Duffy when we were on board specifically for this night....Duffy will be reusing his costume in WDW for the Halloween party as well!

Good for him! The guy knows how to dress a bear!
My DH MIGHT do such a thing IF he could tell everyone it wasn't HIS bear but his KIDS' BEAR!

Sorry again
