We opted to have a few of the professional photos taken on the cruise. I think they came out pretty nice. We did them on Pirate Night which also happened to be my 9th birthday!
Sassy kids, huh?
We had another at sea day and then arrive on Castaway Kay, Disney’s private island in the bahamas. I went out with dad to snorkel in the lagoon. I took lots of photos of fish.
I found the Mickey statue, finally!
The big grouper was out and about.
I played not he beach and made homes for crabs.
We took a bike ride to the tower and saw all the funny sculptures.
We had a cool towel creation at lunch time but I didn’t see it until almost bed. Emmerson and I stayed on the island and hung out in the kids area for a while while Mom and Dad went back to relax and hav lunch on the ship.
I chased this huge lizard down.
Mom and Dad came back out to see us and then took us to a stingray adventure. We played int he cool shaded sand for a while before our groups time.
We got to feed the stingrays by hand.
They we got to go out and swim with them. They were HUGE! There was 74 females and 1 male in the lagoon. They trim the barbs every month so you are less likely yo get stung by one.
Off I go!
Dad stayed with me around the lagoon since Emmerson was glued to Mom.
After dinner there was a giant sea turtle on the bed!
And don’t forget the most epic towel creation EVER—Wall-E!
After a fun day on St. John and St. Thomas we enjoyed some fun on the ship with a really cool show by Mike Super. He is an illusionist. He was pretty darn LAVANOUS! He made up the word! Just killing time before the show.
After the amazing show we met Mike Super.
Dinner was at Animators Palate. We had a cool create your own cupcake design type thing for dessert. Emmerson worked on mixing I worked on eating.
I loved the towel sculpture tonight!
I loved St. John. There were big lizards cruising around.
We took an Eco-Hike through the nature park.
The guide was very smart and knew a LOT about the trees and wildlife.
I took lots of pictures and asked lots of questions.
That is donkey scat. Donkeys are wild on the island.
We found a almost 1 foot long caterpillar.
There were lots of termite nests in the trees.
We toured the grounds of an old sugar mill.
We fished in the holes in the ground for tarantula! Emmerson caught one.
The scenery on the bus and boat rides were amazing. The water was so blue.
The many faces as we took the hour long boat trip back to St. Thomas.
Happy birthday to me! Birthday donuts for breakfast!
A long hot walk through downtown when all the shops are closed and we are all hot and miserable.
I enjoyed the fancy buildings.
Mom liked all the color.
She threatened to leave me here at the school for the day.
Even the beach was deserted.
I don’t want to work I just want to bang not he drum all day.
Back to the ship for lunch before our afternoon excursion.
We crossed the border not he island from the French to the Dutch sides.
I was amazed how but the mountains were on this smaller island.
The water was so blue.
We went on a semi submerged boat to see the reefs and fish. A diver went in the water and baited the fish so they would swim close to the porthole windows.
We even saw live sea turtles swimming around.
I am having a great birthday!
Beware of the mosquitos.
Back to the ship and saying goodbye to land before heading towards St. Thomas.
