Castaway Cay

Today was a beautiful day to be at Castaway Cay. The weather was sunny with a few clouds, and it wasn't too hot. Everley and I left the ship and headed straight to the family beach to find our spot. We found one with an umbrella under some palm trees, thinking it would be shaded. It was - for a bit. It really didn't matter, since Everley's plan was to spend as much time as possible in the water. Maribeth joined us as we were staking our claim on our chairs. After an hour in the water, we all went to eat lunch. Then Maribeth headed back to the ship for some quiet, cool nap time and Everley and I stayed on the beach. It's the most time I've spent on the family beach and in the ocean since our first Disney cruise in 2000. We had a lot of fun and eventually I persuaded Everley to go back onboard. We found Maribeth in the room, and she and Everley then went to the pool - I think Everley is part fish!

Anyhow, we had our last dinner in Animator's Palate and said our goodbyes to our servers. It had been a great cruise!!

Goofy was our first stop.

And then Minnie. Who liked Everley's swimsuit - maybe because Minnie is on it!

Two really cool chicks!

A brief visit to the chairs - most of the time was spend in the sand and/or the ocean!

When one buries herself in the sand, a shower is in order before lunch.

Being flexible helps ...

Yum!!  Cookout at Cookies!!
