Cruising Day Seven

Slept in this morning until 10:30, this rocking and swaying of the boat is really relaxing to me and I have slept like a baby all week.  Had room service breakfast again (yes I did this everyday except one, and yes I can be anti-social in the morning.)  Still no outside contact but not willing to pay $1 per minute to use the boat's computer...

Got up and dressed and the weather was too cool for pool time so just went exploring the ship.  Did some shopping again, met some people for lunch, went to the casino and threw some money away and then headed back to my room for some napping.  Got all my bags packed, I am SO ready to get off this damn ship.  I have really had a great time but it is past time to go home.  I miss my baby and actually missing C1 and C2.  Need to get home soon!

I finished packing up and I am taking my time getting ready for dinner.  Decided to sit on my balcony and catch the sunset, something I haven't taken the time to do yet.  It is breathtaking:

Though my camera did not do it justice!

Got ready for our final dinner and I'm just not feeling the desire to be social tonight.  Did manage to take my camera and catch a few shots:

This is actually my little brother and his wife, one of my bestest friends, who happens to be our travel agent.  It was nice to spend time with them among the craziness of all the agents!

Here's a shot of me, does it appear to you that I am TRYING to act like I am having a good time?  I'm not sure my fake smile was working here...

But, this one, this is a genuine smile!  Although I can see the fatigue on my face.

If you have ever been on a cruise you know that every night you get some 'animal' made out of towels.  Every morning all my fellow passengers would share the elaborate animal they received and I would share that my towel animal was either unrecognizable or something really stupid. 

For example on the night we left Grand Cayman, I got what I assume was a Sting Ray - a towel folded into a square and a wash cloth twisted in what appeared to be a 'tail' - totally LAME.  It became a big joke that my attendant must not like me for some reason.  So on the final evening when I saw my animal and wasn't even sure it was an 'animal' I decided to take a picture to share.  Myself, I think it looks like a creature in bondage - but you tell me, what the HELL is this?

Heading HOME in the morning!

Glad you survived. Isn't it awful when you finish a "fun trip" tireder than you started?? You looked good, though!!

I'm thinking a well endowed chicken, but that's just me!

Sounds like you had a good time, but that is a long time to be away from your family.

I think it helps when expectations are low cuz then you got no where to go but up! Glad you had a good time!

Tricia said...

I did not know that about the Towel Animals. Interesting! I am not to far off from Tracie in thinking it's a well endowed something or other. It for sure has a pecker! I think your attendant was a pervert! LOL!

Well, all in all didn't sound like too bad of a trip. As always you looked just great like the Diva you are.
As for that towel thing, well I'm not going to say here what I thought it looked like? Yikes. Glad you are back home safe and sound.

i think that's a chicken you twit...although the 'head' looks like a very ugly penis.

i do remember sleeping on a boat- it is nice- the bad thing is i keep swaying even when off the boat- for like a day. sounds like you relaxed and had a nice time- that's awesome.
