Castaway Cay Day

Sunday, November 15, 2015
The last day of our cruise was spent at Castaway Cay. Disney's private island in the Bahamas. And one of our favorite places on earth. It is all self contained and the whole island is full of little Disney touches and attention to detail.

My day started with running the Castaway Cay 5k race. I found Minnie right after I finished for a celebratory picture with my medal.

The boys had a more leisurely morning, they strolled off the boat and went and found the preschooler splash area.

Once we all rendezvoused, we found ourselves a little patch of beach to sit and play on. The sand is white, the water is clear. It's just perfect. It was cloudy...and rained a little bit over lunch...which kept the temperatures down and comfortable. Perry loved playing on the beach. I love that sand doesn't seem to bother him at all. He saw some other kids playing with buckets and shovels and immediately got envious. So we caved and went and bought him a set (note to self...bring one with us next time) and it was the best $7 we spent. He could have played with that little bucket all day long carrying sand to and from the ocean to our chairs.

After lunch we did a little more playing. And our day was made when we stumbled upon this happy, warm hug loving snowman. Totally didn't expect to get to meet him on the trip.

By that point in the day P was totally tuckered out. And took his nap right there on a beach chair in the Bahamas. It's a hard life for sure. Before heading back aboard the ship we wanted to get a family picture with our boat in the background like we have from our last trip. Poor little tired buddy did not want to wake up for it so it was a bit of a struggle. But we got it...kinda.

That night we cleaned up and had one last dinner aboard the Disney Fantasy. P and I had one last Minnie encounter too. We clean up well after a day of sun and sand.
