    Power is good. Cleaning the frig right before the holidays - I guess that is a good time to clean the frig. Too bad it is a "have to" situation instead of a "want to" situation. I am so sorry though for everything you guys are having to go through. What a disruption in life!

    As of this morning, we do not! :sad:

    This is day 7 of of no electric, no heat, no hot water, stove's electric...so that's a bust too.

    Sitting here at my office desk with space heater blasting my legs and feet hoping that it sinks in and lasts through the cold, dark night ahead.

    Hi Ellen! Glad to hear you are having a nice getaway. So awesome to be in the GV. How can you ever go back to a 2 Bdrm? :rotfl2: I hope you continue to have a wonderful time and that the power is back on for you when you get home!

    Glad to see some of you other readers are getting power back on - so sorry for those who don't, and for all of the loss.

    I see you DISmoms are not cruising after all next May? Well, I know you will have a great time together, however you work it out. :cool1:

    Rosie- the bandanas are given to all on the ship- anything else, you need to bring yourself. :)

    Hey Everyone!!! We have been neglecting you for faaaaar too long around here! I guess between Sandy, then I went away for 9 fabulous nights to WDW (5 at the AKV GV, then 4 at BWV 1 BDRM), THEN it was more Sandy clean up, then Thanksgiving, then too much birthday celebrating, then Christmas, then NYE....too much EVERYTHING!!!!! So here is a little catch up- come on KJ! Let's finish this puppy up! Only one day to go!!

    Our last full day had finally come- and we, of course, could not WAIT to get off the ship! We were on a hunt, you know- a hunt for Jack Sparrow! We must have had some kind of breakfast from Cabanas, although I have no pics of it, so hopefully someone else does. :wave2:

    We were pulling in to port...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We wasted no time getting off the ship once we had docked- once we had found JS, we would be going to Serenity Bay, and I, for one, could not WAIT to be on this island sans kids. I mean, I love my boys, and all, but a beach that has NO KIDS, mine or anyone else's, just sounds so....serene!

    First- picture time!!

    [​IMG]

    And we were OFF! The hunt was ON!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    But- ok, now HERE'S the question- if YOU were Jack Sparrow, and YOU were on CC, where would you be?

    :confused3

    EXACTLY. This ain't called a hunt for nothin! We checked the Navigator, which gave it all away with the location of Pelican Point.

    Soooo....where the heck is that? :confused3

    [​IMG]

    It MUST be by the bar with the Pelican- the Heads Up bar?

    Nooooo...

    Maybe it's near Pelican Plunge! That makes alot of sense!!

    Nooooo.....

    Ok...why don't we ASK someone? So Kara goes down to see a CM on the beach in front of the swimming lagoon (the original family beach). Surely, SHE will know- she's here every week twice!

    Nooooo......

    REALLY??? WHERE THE HECK IS Paradise Point????

    Well...obviously, Pelican Point is behind the tram stop on a dirt road.

    DUH!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sure...THAT makes sense! And we knew we had found it when- we saw no line and a photographer hiding in the bushes. :thumbsup2 And then....

    It started to rain. Because, well, thats what happens right before the hunt is over on Castaway Cay. It rains and it pours.

    [​IMG]

    Right, Kara Jean?

    [​IMG]

    There go all the people who said, "Nah...I think we'll take another loop around...."

    [​IMG]

    But would the rain ever end??? Would Jack Sparrow be found at last??? Next!

    Such a cliffhanger, huh? I prematurely posted- oops. Must have been all the excitement of meeting...HIM-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That's right- against all odds, we found Captain Jack Sparrow ON Castaway Cay! And he said, "What took you so long?"

    :rolleyes1

    Some other group of random wenches was waiting behind us, thinking they were all that- on a trip without their husbands OR kids- SHAMELESS! Well, too bad, random wenches- you got sloppy seconds after we had finished using that bad Captain UP! :dance3:

    All of us satisfied with the ultimate conquest, we did what any other women would do on CC without children- we headed for beautiful Serenity Bay.

    Damn! Prematurely posted AGAIN! I think my computer needs to See Alice! ;)

    Ahhhhhh....Serenity Bay....beautiful, quiet, serene and lovely beach of crystal clear waters for children less visitors to Castaway Cay.....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We picked a spot, and relaxed blissfully....until it was time for a little pre-lunch ice cream-

    [​IMG]

    Or a cookie-

    [​IMG]

    Or a mug full of diet coke to be enhanced with the OTHER Captain we are interested in, Captain Morgan- Kara needed to finish up that big nearly empty plastic bottle o'rum she had dragged willingly onto 2 cruises now.

    [​IMG]

    Soon it was time for lunch- and we were THRILLED with the choices! EVERYTHING tastes better down here on Serenity Bay- plus, they have steaks, grilled to order. Really, this was the first Cookies meal I have thoroughly enjoyed.

    Some of our plates-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It was not a thick steak- but it was a very flavorful ribeye, and I REALLY REALLY enjoyed every single calorie free bite. :)

    Bellies stuffed, it was time to roll back onto the beach-

    [​IMG]

    Where someone was on a hunt for US!:ssst:

    Hooray you found him! :banana:

    When we went, he was right past the boat, on the walking path. We were the first ones stalking him!

    Food looks yummo!

    Someday, I hope to see Serenity Bay. Unfortunately, I don't think that day will arrive until Michael is about 10 years older. :(

    I am happy dancing this morning. I have booked us to go to WDW last week of August. We are staying at the Beach Club. We have never been and I wanted to try something new. Plus, the idea of being that close to EPCOT really appeals to my cocktail...errrr, ummm....world culture-loving self!

    Can't wait for more! :thumbsup2

    Great to see you resumed the TR! That Serenity Bay is beautiful! I would love to do a cruise on DCL someday and CC is a major reason why.
