As we were going back to the cabins, we saw :-



Great ending to our first full day.

The next day was our Sea Day and after another breakfast at the Poyal Palace we donned our swim suits and headed to the Adult pool



Charles had said he didn't like water but he sat in the shallow part for a good hour



Carol , Nancy and Linda enjoyed dangling there feet too!!


Bryan was not so adventourous yet!!!



John enjoyed the Hot Tub and the view !! he also took off on us to go get a drink and was not on the GOOD list




Looking at this you would NOT realize the effort that went into getting Nancy over to that shallow pool area !! The water is deep and her mobility was NOT easy tp handle But Carol and I perservered and Nancy got to enjoy her shallow pool !!!!

I will leave off here and then continue with Lunch at Cabanas !!!

Pole dancing on the glass bottom boat cruise??? Hope you didn't scare off the colorful fish and that is why you didn't see many. Wooden Marv looks like he is having a great time!

Lots of good food........prime rib, scallops, strawberry cheesecake, bananas foster............how can you go wrong??? But sugar free ice cream??? What's the point?

Nice that some of the group made progress at the pool!

Yeah I can cure you.

Several reasons why people don't like water in their face- heck I don't really like it either but I just deal with it better than most.

Usually it is water in the eyes , up the nose or both. Combine that with the discomfort of not being able to see or breathe and yup- not a great experience.

I can cure that if you are willing.


Have a wonderful trip!!!!!

Ahh catching up. breakfast looked yummy, was that fried chicken with the waffle and pancake? And whip cream makes everything yummy, and when its on a vacation its Calorie FREE LOL. speaking of calorie free lunch and dinner again Im so glad you take all kinds of pics. Dessert always gets me.

I love the title too, its my sister's and my favorite show. Got to love when you can have fun and joke around with your group.

Cant wait to read more!!!

Pat, any chance you can cure not willing to be seen in a bathing suit since the number 6 is no longer my size???

When I was a kid I loved the beach and pools - as a young child we lived a block from the ocean and then never more than a short drive. Until moving to NC I could always smell the ocean. Now I sink, will not go in a pool and only walk along the edge of the water on the beach (terrified of whatever lurks in the water. )No idea when I forgot how to swim...I cannot even dog paddle.

Thankfully, my kids also loved the water and were great swimmers. My son was jumping off the high dive backwards at 11 - no idea if that is the norm, but it seemed young to me and scared the heck of me when I watched him!

Rosie, have fun!!!

I'm thinking a trip to a nude beach should do it! After some of the sights you will probably see there, a bathing suit won't seem NEARLY so bad..........

I was going to suggest Christine come to a class at my center. When you see all my seniors in all their shapes and sizes you will feel more comfortable in a bathing suit in public.

This senior is far to wise to subject the public to such a thing.
