From flying high...
to cruising the open seas!!
It was off to our ship, Carnival Valour after sending the kids home to do chores!!
The weather was AMAZING....
80-90 Degrees every day!!
there was a towel animal on our bed and itinerary for the next day.
From this cute bear or cat...
To this strong little elephant.
Some delicious drinks and games of cards were enjoyed...
Some Bingo was played
(in support of my sister-in-law, Anita)
I am not much of dabber myself.
If you won any of the contests on the ship
You were awarded a piece of "Ship on a Stick"
We dined in style with the Captain but never did see the man!!
this is not the Captain...
though he could pass as one!!
This is Bill and Anita(Arnold's Sister).

Our first port was Bahamas.
We hired a man named Quincy who took us to the Queen's Staircase.
This is where slaves spent 16 years carving out blocks of stone out of the rock...
in order to make Fort Fincastle.
It was a remarkable feat.
I can't even imagine what hard labour it was!!
Not a bad look on Arnold....
Quincy picked us up at the bottom of the staircase and we toured Nassau, Bahamas.
This was one of the Governor's Estate.
All the government building were pink and white.
Next it was off to the Atlantis Hotel.
There are only two in the world and the other one is in Dubai.
I remember when Oprah did her show from this Hotel and how incredible it was.
Everything was big and extravagant.
When I saw this creature I thought of one person...
Jaynie Himsl....your rendition is spot on!!
Pegusus was flying everywhere!!
There were huge glass spheres on top of the walk ways.
The colors were stunning.
At the end of the day, Arnold tipped our driver, Quincy
that says 1 Million Bucks!!
Arnold was tricked out of 20$ by the ship's magician in exchange for this bill.
What to do with a 1,000,000??
Ooooooh..... the possibilities!!
It was back to our ship for some refreshments.
It is highly recommended to stay hydrated on such a hot and humid vacation.
We did our best!!
After all it was 2 for 1 and who can resist a margarita?
I think some socks and a quilt have my name on them!!
My toes are freezing!
Thanks to Justin for keeping you entertained while I was not able to blog.
He may have to do some guest appearances every now and again!
