Thanks to the dedicated cast members on Castaway Cay, the island looks great just a week after Hurricane Sandy blew through. Maybe the crew could lend their services to New York and New Jersey? The salt water and high winds made the foliage on CC look sorta frost-bit -- lotsa brown leaves and some dead plants, except for that tall palm tree in the middle of the island. Oh wait. That's a communications tower disguised to blend in with the local plants. Anyway, the beaches have been groomed and the island is still a paradise. The weather was perfect for sunbathing this past Friday, tho the water was a bit nippy -- except for the die-hards. A lot of people rented bicycles instead.
