I just saw a thread a few minutes ago w/the phrase 'swimsuit optional'. It then stirred a FUNNY memory from our 1st DCL vacation two years ago. The night before we were to dock in St. Maarten, we saw the DCL info channel regarding the beaches. It mentioned a few that were 'swimsuit optional.' I thought nothing of it (OK! I didn't know what it meant!) until DH said, "Wooo. That means topless.' I thought 'yeah right'. (I've only been to beaches in FL, SC and CA.) Fastforward to the next day. We asked the cabdriver to take us to a FAMILY beach (7 yo DD was w/us, and of course we wanted no part of topless beaches.) No sooner did we set foot on Orient beach and VOILA! DH came up to me and whispered in my ear, 'OMG, there's a woman over there w/no top on wearing a thong." What made it so funny was his sly grin and DD yelling out LOUD, "Mommy, that lady doesn't have a swimsuit top on, neither does that one, or THAT one!" She was pointing too! I was trying to keep my cool, was shocked, and at the same time, trying to keep from laughing myself! Like any 7-year old girl, she was covering her mouth giggling, and DH and I were beet red trying to keep a straight face. We high-tailed it out of there but were laughing like crazy on the inside. Not at the nude sunbathers, but trying to be nonchalant to our DD. We DID explain to her that some French people sunbathe topless, etc.) Anyone else want to share funny, humbling memories about your children (or anyone) on DCL?
