Cruisin the Caribbean...Day 2

Day 2:

Sept 8

Tuesday morning we woke up, well I woke up, and headed out to the pool. We were at sea and could see nothing but beautiful blue ocean in every direction. Heath came out to join us a little later.

We spent the day soaking up the sun, eating, and enjoying all the fun activities on board. Heath was the official grand champion at the bean bag toss, he was quite proud of this. He felt the need to defend his championship later in the day at the doubles match, so of course he needed a partner. Let's just say, maybe he should have picked a different partner.

The rest of my day pretty much looked like this....

Around 4:30 pm we passed right by Cuba, you could see it from the boat. It was kinda neat! I took so video of it but you can't really see it in the video. We were very close, close enough to see little houses and the beach, it was really neat!

Tuesday evening was our formal night, which I was super excited about because I love to get dressed up. I found this dress on a clearance rack at Macy's for $15 and was immediately in love. I wore it for as long as I could that evening even though after dinner it was so tight I almost couldn't breathe. It is one of my all time favorite dresses.

Before dinner was the Captain's Cocktail Party, which basically is code for FREE DRINKS. The party is only 45 minutes long so we were trying to drink as much as possible in that amount of time. I managed to get down 4 whiskey sours and snagged two glasses of wine to carry over to dinner with me. It's a wonder I could even stand because I was STARVING! I was so hungry I was eating the olives out of the martinis!

Whiskey sour #1, Cheers!

Oh, besides drinking we did get in a few dances...

Heath was super excited about dinner because lobster was on the menu. I don't care for lobster so he ate mine too. I ate all the shrimp though! Yummy! Here are a few pics from the evening!

Still standing despite all the drinks...

After dinner we went to the show which was really cute, they had alot of great costumes and good music...Here is Cindy and I waiting for the show to start...

After the show we finally went to change, my dress was really tight after dinner! We headed out to the "R" rated comedy show. Where I had my third glass of wine which I proceeded to spill all down the front of me as soon as Heath handed it to me. Thank goodness they gave me a new one at no charge! Drinks are expensive! After the show and the wine I was ready to pass out, so we headed off to bed.

Towel Animal: Well if you have been following the story here you will remember I have had a good bit to drink, so I don't exactly remember what the animal was but, I have a faint memory of a rabbit!
