Jen, glad to hear that the surgery could be avoided.

I am glad that he is healing well and did not need surgery after all. That is great news.

By the way, I have started my Dubai mini trip report. You can find this here:

Yay for avoiding surgery! Now you just have to keep him in line until he heals completely. Good luck with that !

Nice walk around before bed time.
Thanks for the walking tour of the ship. It looks so pretty.
I kind of agree with the no pic in the kids club rule.
Nice pics in Nassau.
LOL. That sign is funny.
That poor Flamingo. That is why they should be held in captivity.
All caught up again.

I agree. I am actually surprised they let people in there with them for that very reason. I am sure she is not the only one who has ever touched one.
It's meat to be part of, but if you think about it, I really wonder how well they are treated.

Alexis isn’t all that keen on the flamingoes either.











Claire was safely in between her 2 cousins, so no worries for her.





The kids then were allowed to sit back down and the flamingos ran around a few more times.





One of the rebels.









See the 2 fighting on the right side? I was laughing and we were putting words in their mouths. “Did you see that girl grab my neck? I have been marching for over 30 years and NO ONE has ever grabbed my neck! I can’t believe she did such a thing”.



“I am filing a claim with workman’s comp!”



“I have never had my feathers in such a ruffle”.



“Let’s get out of here”.









That really was a fun thing to see. Not something I would want to do every trip, but I good thing to try at least once. The flamingoes are beautiful too.

After the show we did a little more looking around.





With our tickets, we could get a free drink or snack, so we headed over to the snack bar and each got a pop. Well the rest of the family pretty much got bottle waters, but Claire and I got pops. When we got on the bus, the family noticed that the label said Bahamian water and they refused to drink it. They said after seeing the disgusting green water there, there was no way they would take a chance of drinking it. I am sure it was fine, but I wasn’t going to be the guinea pig on that one either.

We next headed towards Fort Charlotte.



We had the option of staying on the bus or getting off and taking a quick look around.
I believe this is when Aunt Mary said she was getting off to stretch and Abby comes darting down the bus aisle and says “I’m going with Murry”. We all laughed and said, “Um Murry, you have someone joining you”.
I think about half the bus got off, and Claire and I did as well. I took a few pictures. It was really neat to see, but sad to see the graffiti on the buildings.
You can see the ship from here too.







My beloved lighthouse





I love this picture.















I took a lot of pictures with the ship in the distance.





Dad, Rob and Alexis had walked up towards the Fort, but came right back down.



Claire and I went up there next. Now to actually go in the Fort it cost money. I think it was only like a dollar or 2, but since we had limited time there, I didn’t want to hold everyone else up by going in. I would probably get carried away with pictures inside and not pay attention to time. I believe Skip and I toured this Fort many years ago too.

I'm betting that the words that you spoke on behalf of the flamingos is just about what they were really thinking. I was going to show John the Abby vs. the flamingo pictures last night but I didn't get a chance. He'll get a chuckle out of them.

Oh, I hate to see the graffiti on the buildings. Why can't people just leave historical (or any building for that matter) alone? It takes away from the beauty.

I bet he will laugh. They might have Abbys picture outside the gate now that says "do Not let the girl back in!"

I hate to see it too. When were in Cozumel, there was some at the ruins too. And the Guide there said they really work on trying to clean it and prevent it now. But for many years the place just basically sat there with no one protecting it.

The flamingo shots are awesome! An absolute hoot! I especially love the captions! But my favorites are the ones with the look on Alexis' face and Claire standing next to her laughing. She really is her mother's child, isn't she?

And I also love the shot of the Dream with Atlantis in the background. So tell us.... how did you get her to post there for you?

Claire was pretty brave, which is funny because in the past, Alexis is usually braver.

I just asked the Captain to just pull her there so I could get the perfect shot!

I think I may have been to that fort. The gardens look great despite the storm and the flamingo march was fabulous. Wathcing the kids react is priceless. I bet in spite of their reactions, thy will remember that for the rest of their lives.


The shot of the Dream with Atlantis in the background is simply beautiful.
