Rosie, I love the Lucy and Ethel theme (Mark watches the reruns all of the time). The food looks so yummy...especially that trio.

I'm guessing Wooden Marv must have slept in this morning.........or he hung around the verandah hoping for coffee.

Purely a guess, but that small boat may be the one which brings the Harbor Master out to board the ship and bring it in to dock. This is usually a specialized function that is turned over to someone who is very familiar with the local waters and experienced at navigating them. The actual ship's captain (at least on freighters coming into port) don't usually perform this function.
Yes it was indeed the Lucy Show !! They all knew about it and it was just such a great way to have some fun !!!You know me gotta have some giggles !!!
I kinda thought the same about the boat , but wasn't sure !! As for Coffee on the veranda (where have I heard that before, once I managed to figure out the cabin phone , which for technically challenged folks was not easy !!I ordered us coffee a few times and we LOVED sitting on the Veranda enjoying our caffeine !!! I love eggs benedict and the sausage that came with them was delish , the fried tomato was a special treat , so British !!!

Let me warn you though that for some reason that stuff they call Canadian Bacon is nowhere near as delicious as real bacon (both the US and the UK version!). I have no idea why the Canadians have to suffer with that stuff as their bacon and have slight suspicions that they eat proper bacon, too. Therefore my preference goes to Egg Florentine which avoids the weird bacon and supplements it with spinach. Of course that only works for people who like spinach...[/QUOTE]

I don't mind the bacon, but have to admit sausage would be better !!!!

Is Kevin the same one that went to Disney last year? I though I caught a glimpse of him in a picture.
Yes it was the same Kevin from Disney !! I really enjoy some repeat travelers , some not so much as in Miss Sherry !!!

I can attest to that first hand. Kevin was very helpful with holding onto or was that dragging our girl that was usually at the end of our line.

That eggs benedict looks so good. I drooled on Karin's TR and now you've got me drooling again.

A verandah without coffee? Don't let Cynthia hear that!

Very familiar with Canadian Bacon. It is what is used on the ever popular Egg McMuffin at Mickey D's..........although more like ham than bacon. I like spinach, so the Eggs Florentine sound good also.

Yes, Rosie and giggles is definitely synonymous.

They can keep the fried tomato, but the rest sounds delish! As for good sausage with it.........YUM!!!

I bet you don't like Fried Green Tomatoes either !!! Apart from Maple syrup I have become very Americanized in my dining including GRITS!!!!

After our delicious breakfast we went to our meeting spot for our tour !!! We had booked the Glass Bottom Boat Tour !! We bought bottles of water on a really neat lanyard for everyone , for some reason I don't seem to have a pix . We walked off the boat and went thru the security and had our ID;s/room cards checked and then started about a 10 minute walk to the boat!! Half way there Bryan decided he was out of breath and had to sit down , now he is talking away with no signs of shortness of breathe and was getting pretty adamant about not walking any more , Carole and I were sure he was just LAZY , so we firmly told him to get up and MOVE it !! He complied So we made it to the boat



Our guide was great



and we were off , I tried a little Pole Dancing



Marv enjoyed the view



We learnt that the water is clear it is the bottom of the oceon that gives it the color



Our guide pointed out Homes of famous people, Elvis had owned a house , Michael Jackson and Mary Kay, who he said had a pink roof a pink car and even dyed her dog pink

We were soon out to where the fihes were and went downstairs to view them. The pix aren't to good , but we did see a lot of fish , however not many brightly colored ones



The guys enjoyed the Trivia game on the way back, as the girl who lead us to the boat kept giving them the answers and they all won keychains
We headed back to the dock and saw where we wanted to head for lunch

Cont from previous post!!!

Lunch at Senor Frogs was great











Don't ya LOVE the ears !!!!

We perused the menu and decided on an appetizer platter for 2 , but we got 5 of them !!





They were huge and delish !!!

After lunch we walked along the docks



We then made the HUGE mistake of going in the Straw Market, those gals were PESTS and Pushy , it was a nightmare with our guys ,I did manage to buy T Shirts for myself and the kids , and a wooden elephant for Judy's boyfried , and a really cute picture frame for Judy !! Then we found the Rum store and I purchased a Rum cake . We did some more shopping in regular stores where there was NO pressure and then headed back to the boat.

Back in our cabins we found these






All freshened up we headed to the Theater to see


Stay tuned for our second supper !!

Pole dancing already? It sure didn't take long for that to happen.

Too funny that you had to coax one of the guys just to make it to the boat. Sounds like a great tour.

Of course post cruise food was involved. Looks yummy!

Shopping sounds fun, although more than a little hectic with trying to watch everyone and warding off pushy merchants.
