It's Monday, Great Stirrup Cay day. :)
The night before Anoop (the Conceirge) dropped off a VIP tender card. It told us where to meet him if we wanted to tender early - so we wouldn't have to wait with the riff raff. ;) John said as muggy as it was on the balcony, he really had no desire to go to the beach.
Since I was sure we were not getting off the ship, I let everyone else sleep. Eventually we docked, and my family woke up. We decided to head to Cagneys for breakfast. Since it is a suite perk, we assumed it would not be crowded - and it wasn't.
The girls asked if we were going to get off the ship, and I offered up a suggestion of staying on the ship and enjoying the pool slide & bowling alley while everyone else is on the island - they liked that idea. There was also a craft at 1:00 pm the girls wanted to do. So we ate our breakfast, everything settled. . . .right?
Well, after breakfast we went back to our room and John. . .well, he said "you know, it might be nice to at least see the island". Now, I was okay with either suggestion. . . .but I like to preplan, I am no fly by the seat person. So. ..now we are going to try to get on the island, and back in time to make the 1:00 pm craft the girls want to do. So we rush. Shorts, shirts, sun screen, money - go. . . . . notice anything missing? I didn't until we were on the tender. . .camera. No camera.
Getting to GSC wasn't really pretty. They are apparently expanding it - so there were work trucks everywhere. When we got off the tender there was a small straw village set up, and the girls wanted to shop, they always want to shop - what is up with that?!
