Day Three - Great Stirrup Cay

Great Stirrup is an island that is owned by the cruise line - so the activities for the day are all for the folks on our ship. You can catch a tender to the island from the ship anytime in the morning and then just hang out on one of the two beaches that are set up with 1,000 lawn chairs and 800 umbrella's. The ships carribean cover band is at the beach playing music and leading a Limbo - oh how low can you go - contest for those so inclined.

We choose to sit ourselves at the edge of the water and play for most of the day.

As you can see Em & R had a great time

Here is another shot where you can see our ship off in the background.

I spent much of the day reading under an umbrella and both em & i took turns going out for some scuba time by the far reef - lots and lots of fishes!!! The cruise provided a BBQ lunch and there were soda's and bar service on the beach. All in All not a bad deal.

When I made a disparaging comment about the overly white overly obese folks sitting on lawn chairs actually in the water having their frozen beach drinks delivered to them by the boats waitstaff Em pointed out to me that she couldn't think of a more perfect way to spend a day.
So maybe I'll get her on a cruise again in another 3 or 4 years!!! I know the lil Monkey is up for it.
