Gorgeous grandson you have there! Congrats again.

All this talk of Dug reminded me. Last weekend we were sitting in our living room watching tv and i spotted our friendly neighbourhood squirrel running towards the french windows (he likes to sit on the step by the french windows eating for some reason).

So i call out "Squirrel" to DH, which is what i have always done when the squirrel is in the garden. Normally, DH just kind of says oh yeah and carries on watching tv.

This time, DH had the quickness of thought to do a very exaggerated Dug style "squirrel" headturn towards the windows. It was really funny

We did the Kayak, Hike, and Snorkel excursion. Overall, we thought it was pretty good. Kayaking really isn't my favorite thing, but the location was pretty and the experience was fine... the hike, again, not my favorite thing, but we walked to this really neat rocky area with some marine life and a blowhole and nice photo opportunities. The snorkeling was great - lots of fish, including a 5 foot barracuda! Then we kayaked back to where we started and took open-air vehicles back to the ship. I'd say that if you like all of those activities it would be a great excursion for you - a little of everything. Let me know if I can answer any questions.

We thought he was fabulous! We roared and had a great time, especially when it became personal.....and weird....but awesome!

We thought he was pretty funny... although I can't help but be a TINY bit skeptical that some of the people up there aren't just good actors???

I only saw him in the WD theater. I thought what he had people on stage doing was funny, but I am skeptical. I feel like too many people looked like they were laughing while they were supposd to be "sleeping". Not saying that I don't believe in hypnosis at all, or that he can't put people under...just skeptical of his "show".

We went to see both his shows - I enjoyed them but have been to hypnosis shows before so knew what to expect - I have been to a couple of Max Collie's shows where I had friends who went up and got hypnotized and who had no idea what they were doing up on stage .
Those shows were hysterical

I hear you, believe me...especially where I am not able to get hypnotized. But, my partner did, and she told me how it felt, what she experienced, all very weird and yet amazing. There would be no reason for her to make it up...so I dunno. The Rockin' Bar D night was my favorite.

Palo's Brunch - disboarders delight

I have plenty of food pictures - soon.

In the meantime, this one made me laugh - a lovely CM explaining what a salad is to 4 people who could probably write a book about food and wine.....

I definitely believe it more when we hear from people like you that know the participants...

Parasailing - Castaway Cay - May 29 10:30 - Canon D10

I am making up narrative to accompany these pictures, which were shot by DS19, using the Canon D10. Once posted, he may be able to provide more commentary....

This tour is very convenient - you walk off the ship, a short way down the pier, and board a boat. There were two tours on May 29 at 10:30 (for those who might be able to find themselves in the pictures).






You take a short ride - one boat stays on the beach side, the other goes around the Magic and uses the space on the "other" side (where your can see a construction crane doing something - forgot to ask what - presume it has to do with the new requirements for the Dream / Fantasy). While in transit, you can get cool, one-of-a-kind shots that you cannot get from any other vantage:







Parasailors are launched, and retrieved, from the boat. No getting wet, if you don't want to. You are offered the option to get a little "dunked" on your way back into the boat - toes, legs, not sure what the third option was. I left the crew members' arm on the left so that you have some sense of perspective:






and here is someone getting "dipped"







This is the view, from the boat, of another parasailor. You can see the Magic in the lower left corner (for scale / perspective):






Another view:














Perspective from the air - check out the fuzzy - I mean, FUNNY legs!!







More opportunities to get unique photos:







This looks like "maximum height", based on the taut-ness of the rope:







This contains a little of everything - the ship, the height, the weather, the apparatus, the person:







Miscellaneous unique shots:

Magic, from the water, from the front:







The Magic









The Magic, looking like it is trying to pull away from the dock (like a horse...)
