Last beautiful stop

I’ve neglected blogging about the honeymoon (that happened, um, over a year and a half ago), not because I don’t want to share it with y’all, but because we have so many fantastic pictures, and I want to tell you the whole story. Well… not everything. But the parts suitable for mixed company. ;-)

What the heck, though: I’m looking through my pictures of the Bahamas, and y’all just need to see some of them. Of course, I’m not going to share them all right now – I really want to do an in-depth, non-fake, no-sea-lice, no-Frank-going-to-jail write-up of the whole thing (when I have time, of course).

This was the last stop of our Disney cruise before coming home. Mind you, we went in December, and this is the view that welcomed us to Castaway Cay (Disney’s private island).

first peek
Gorgeous, no?

The first thing we did was start checking out the rocks to find little critters. We found some.

He was so cute!

The weather was fantastic. When we arrived in the afternoon, it was a little warm behind the trees, but we just stayed close to the water and felt an amazing breeze all day. The foliage was beautiful, and I loved these purple flowering hedges most of all.

lovely shrubbery

We ate some lunch at the Disney BBQ restaurant on the island (I wasn’t GF at the time, so we were not worried about that, but Disney is outstanding at serving special dietary needs, so I’m sure I would have been able to eat). It was yummy, of course. After lunch, we had a date with a glass-bottom boat and these precious little fishies:

After the tour, we took a tram over to the adults-only beach (no scream-giggling children!) and sat under an umbrella sipping our drinks (brought right to our umbrella) until the beach closed, which meant it was nearly time to go back to the ship.

By the time we went back to the ship near sundown, it was even getting a little chilly (meaning upper 60s – translation: perfect). Knowing we were going back to muggy Florida, I was happy to be underdressed in my shorts.

the disney magic
The Disney Magic. Yes, that is a Christmas Tree right next to the ship.

I can’t wait to go back.

  1. Gosh, that sounds so perfect. I’ve always wanted to get down to the Carribean sometime. You make me want to go.

  2. The Bahamas were tremendous, even the resorted version of them we saw on our own honeymoon. Highly recommended. Bring $$$. =)

  3. Walter, it’s beautiful. And Disney is the way to go if you want to be pampered and eat yummy food.

    nightfly, I’m glad y’all went somewhere nice for the honeymoon… and without Hurricane Dean!
