We are going on vacation in less than a week and I still haven’t finished my trip report from our last big vacation! Sooo I MUST finish it before we go! Soooo…..
Day 9 – Castaway Cay Day – November 7, 2009
I was so excited about this day of the cruise. It was Castaway Cay Day! The day I get to return to my wedding spot. We got up early and had a quick breakfast and then headed off the ship.
First stop was the post office to mail a post card to Pete’s Parents and to say Hello to these guys!
We got on the Tram and headed to the family beach. I wanted to walk to get good Flying Dutchman pictures, but didn’t. Maybe next time.
I got one Flying Dutchman picture!
We saw Minnie! I was so excited to see the characters in their bathing suits. Alyssa headed right up to her with open arms.
My Dad needed a picture too.
There was a little girl behind us waiting her turn. It was mine and Pete’s turn and the CM said that there was only time for one more person to visit with Minnie. The little girl looked so sad. Pete and I looked at each other and shook our heads and then I told the CM that we would wait for Minnie’s replacement and the little girl could visit her. Well this worked out because then Alyssa also got to see Pluto!
We then headed to Mickey’s line.
I love this picture of my Dad and Alyssa.
We walked to the family beach and got good spots in the shade. I looked over to our wedding spot and this is what I saw………..
I teared up and thought about my day! Pete and I got into the water and he put his arms around me and we recapped our special day. It was nice to be there a few days after our first wedding anniversary in the spot that we pledged our vows to each other.
Look at this smile! It’s to die for. I love her so much!
We had so much fun playing in the water.
My family is insane. Pete is using Brandon as a fishing rod and reeling my dad in. LOL
We rested on the beach before lunch.
Laura and my Dad rented a water bike after lunch. They said it was SUPER hard to do.
Pete and I headed back to the ship before the rest of the family to get ready for Dinner in Palo. Alyssa had fun playing in the sand.
A little while later everyone else headed back to the ship.
Alyssa played in the pools and loved them. She was not 100% potty trained, but she is so tall no one questioned her.
We decorated our cabin doors. I thought to snap a picture of mine.
It was formal night and Mickey and Minnie were all dressed up.
Pete and I were all ready to head to Palo
Along the way I took some pictures from deck 10 at night.
Once we got to Palo we had to wait a few minutes. So I got a CM to take our picture.
I love the look of this area.
I didn’t take pictures of our food in Palo. I felt weird. But the waiter took this for us.
We missed the farwell, but my Dad went to check it out. While he was there he ran into Stitch. LOL
Pete and I missed the night-time fun since we were rushing to pack up the room after the 3 hour meal at Palo. We also went to watch Disney Dreams, but I didn’t take the camera. I was sad our trip was coming to an end. Thankfully we rebooked a trip for August 2010. As most of you know we changed that so we could be at WDW with so many of our friends in January 2011.
