    Must .... have.... more... :thumbsup2

    You must be off with my Jack somewhere and some rum!pirate:

    I did the cornrows on our honeymoon in Mex and hated it! I have a very sensitive scalp and after 2 days i couldn't take any more! I made DH cut them out before we ever got home, not to mention the sunburned scalp that then peeled! :eek:

    After a wonderful morning on Castaway Cay, it was time to get our grub on......

    In the form of BBQ, Castaway style.....

    No, not Survivor style, we are not eating the weaker ones. Well, maybe we were, but I don't wanna know. It was tasty, that's all I know. And it tasted like chicken..... ;)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    As we were going through the buffet, grabbing one of these, two of that, a couple of these, ooooh yuck none of those, we noticed Ally grab a fish fillet. Typically, she will eat fish, but at a buffet she wouldn't CHOOSE to eat it. KWIM?

    So we sit down, and Jeff is still looking a little green around the gills. Afterward he said he didn't think the food was very good at Cookies, but I disagree. It was bbq food!

    Burgers, chicken, different salads, etc. I actually enjoyed it, after all the rich foods we'd been eating all week. I thoroughly enjoyed the burger. And the chicken. And the fish. Oh no, I'm going all Palo again!!!! :scared1:

    Soon we see Ally making that face, that rolling her eyes back in her head, this is so delicious, face. She point to her "chicken" and says, "This is the BEST chicken I've ever had!!!!" :rotfl2: We wait until she's on her last bite, and then inform her it was....... NOT CHICKEN!!!! She looks us dead in the eye and says, "I knew that. It tasted like fish."

    WHATEVER!!!! We should have just told her it was those who passed before us. Gilligan, Mary Ann (or Ginger if you prefer), Tom Hanks, etc. It ALL tastes like chicken!!!

    Once we finished eating, we waddled back to our spot right near the stick out bar (cause, well, it stuck out into the sea!!!). Ally ran off to play with Tori....

    [​IMG]

    It was about that time that Jeff said, "oh oh" as he looked behind us.....

    [​IMG]

    We thought about that bike ride we were going to take, but didn't want to get stranded on the other side of the island in a thunderstorm. So we started getting all our things together....

    .....just....in....case.....

    And it was a good case. Or bad. But it was a case. Maybe a head case. I should have brought a suit case......

    Because within minutes of seeing that sky......

    [​IMG]

    The bottom absolutely fell out of the sky.

    I don't remember any thunder, so it was just a heavy shower, but I still didn't like the idea of my camera floating away, and everything getting completely soaked. So we had moved inland a bit and found shelter in a children's play place.

    Rain? What rain?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Once it started to let up, we moseyed on back to our spot by the stick out bar. Scratch that.... we passed our spot by the stick out bar and headed straight TO the stick out bar!!!!

    Ally's drink.....
    [​IMG]

    My drink......
    [​IMG]

    You talk about belly up to the bar? It was the only way to stay dry!!! We were bellied ON the bar I think!!!!

    View from stick out bar....

    [​IMG]

    After we finished our drinks, we took all our unused items back - snorkels, flippers, floats, bikes (okay, we didn't actually HAVE the bikes yet.....), and began the trek back to the ship.

    You wanna talk about sad? Once we got on that ship, the next stop was <gulp> Port Canaveral!!!!! And we did NOT want to go home yet!!!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We were soaked when we boarded, about 3pm - 2 hours before all aboard. But the rain had really chilled us, and we appreciated the nice warm towels they handed out.....

    Waiting for us just inside the ship....

    [​IMG]

    Up next.... WORST DINNER EVER!!!!!!!!

    Oh no!! Rain!!! I really think the least Disney could do is promise perfect weather. Sheesh. Well, it looks like you managed to drink up at least some fun on the island. What was that drink you had? It looked mocha-y to me but maybe it was a pina colada and my monitor's color is off.

    I have to say, ITA with Jeff- I don't really like that Cookies BBQ- I am very anxious to see what we think about the Serenity Beach BBQ, because I think they have some alternate options. :thumbsup2

    And Ally's drink looks like a Bushwacker. See?

    [​IMG]

    Or maybe yours does. Well, i hope SOMEBODY had a yummy drink like this one!

    I just wrote a bunch of lies about you on my cruise TR in case you'd like to look....:rolleyes1


    And i HATE the worst dinner ever- only slightly less than the worst breakfast ever which truly is the WORST meal EVAAAARRRRRR!!!! :sad1:

    So sad that you have finished your CC day. :sad2: Then to have it cut short my rain - the horror. Didn't Disney know the McSparklesons were trying to enjoy everything in one day? They should have controlled that rain.:rotfl2:

    Warm towels - once again, Disney just thinks of everything. I'm sorry your worst dinner is coming up.

    You were smarter than us. We did venture out to enjoy a leisurely bike ride and got caught in that downpour. It kinda stings when you are riding fast trying to get back.

    You just wanted to say "too, too." Cause I wanna say "too, too," too!!! :rotfl2:

    Well, I do think the towels were just for the McSparklesons. Poor Kristi and her family, being pelted in the rain on the bikes, I heard them come in behind us and ask for towels, begging, "But we know the McSparklesons!!!!" Shot down!!!! :rotfl2: Kristi, are you sure you don't wanna come with us in March?????

    "He who smelt it dealt it!!!!" Yeah, played that game on Journey into Imagination. Figment was NOT impressed!!! :lmao:

    Again, are you SURE you don't wanna come in March? We'll snag some extra towels for you????? ;)

    Poor Ally - tricking her into eating a fish stick like that. You are bad, bad parents! :rotfl2:

    Talk about "when it rains, it pours". The bar sounds like an awesome place to stay dry.

    The worst dinner ever - Thanks Ellen, I get it now! ;)

    I'll be back to see your pictures.

    Lol. I loved the title of that post, "Tastes Like Chicken". And the drinks look amazing! I could use one about now.

    Except we're not going to Cookies Too - we'll eat at Serenity Bay where the chicken tastes like chicken and actually is chicken ;)

    Great update :thumbsup2 I know you don't want it to end but I'm with Tony - I want to read the end before we leave. You could always start your pre-trippy for the next trip when you finish this one :idea:

    We did NOT trick her.... he scooped up the fish all by herself and then snarfed it down. But she eats a lot more fish at home now because of that..... ;)

    Oh, the drinks WERE good!! It was some sort of mocha thingy.... with alcohol, probably kahlua...... Ally's was basically a milkshake.....

    I think the reason I liked the food was that after eating such rich foods in the dining rooms all week, a burger and fries was really really good. I get that way on vacation - I love all the great food, but there comes a time when even a pb&j starts to sound good..... :rotfl2:

    I think you SHOULD go to SB and CTTTTTTTTTTTT. :thumbsup2
