Cruise to the Bahamas Days 6 and 7

Day 6 was another day at sea. We had hit our limit of sitting around. So today we went to some of the activities. We watched the newlyweds game, which was really funny. Then we went and watched karaoke, which can always go either way.

The day went really fast and it was time for our last meal. The Sheriff and his wife left dinner early, so it was just us, the Athletic Director and the cop. I don't know what we were talking about, but the cop started to talk. We found out the he was a constable in Dallas and his job was search and seizure. At one point he said, "I don't say too much, you never know who you are talking to. But I say what needs to be said when it needs to be said". This was one tough guy - you would not want to mess with him. Eventually we started talking about our pets and he turned into a big teddy bear. We really enjoyed getting to know them.

After dinner we actually went to a show! We must be very sleep deprived because we slept for about 10 hours every night. This was the first night we actually went out on the town, so to speak. It was a great show, but we were ready for bed. Of course, we were excited to see what was waiting for us in our room...

The next day, we got up early and headed to breakfast. We were already docked back in Jacksonville. We just had to wait until it was time to get off the boat. Here were are.

That was it. Vacation - over. We caught the shuttle to the airport and couldn't figure out why the airport was built on the ocean....we still felt like we were on that boat! Our equilibrium was out of whack!

After many hours of traveling, we finally got home. The pets were so happy to see us and we were so happy to see them. As I said before, I love to go away, I just wish I could bring home with me.

We won this cruise at the Olivia Medici Memorial Run last year. This trip served as a graduation present for Trevor - he just finished up his bachelor's degree. After the trip was over, we reflected on the thought that this trip was also in honor of sweet Olivia. The 3rd annual Memorial Run is this coming weekend. That's where we will be on Sunday.

Time to get back to our normal routine and our crazy life!
