Disney Cruise, Day 3

Tuesday (Day 3) we arrived at Castaway Cay. We woke up early so we could get ready, eat breakfast and head to the beach. This was our view while we ate breakfast at Beach Blanket Restaurant on the ship.

You could see the whole island from the boat. It was beautiful and the weather was great!

This is the Flying Dutchman.

Naomi and Daddy making sand castles. Naomi was loving it!

Naomi loved playing in the ocean. The water was a little chilly but we got used to it.

While playing in the water we saw Captain Jack Sparrow walking the beach, so we went and took pictures with him.

At lunchtime, we got our food from Pop's Props. The food was yummy.

After Naomi finished eating she wanted to sit with Papa. So Papa had a full lap holding Naomi and Zoey.
While Naomi waited for Cory and me to finish our lunch, Naomi decided to make smiley faces in the sand.
After lunch, we headed back to the beach to play in the sand and the water. We got in the tubes we rented and let Cory pull us around. Naomi and I shared a tube; Debra and Zoey shared a tube; and Jessy and Riley shared a tube. Eric, Cody, and Stewart (Eric's brother-in-law) were playing catch with the football Cody brought, but they took a break to act like sea monsters. Naomi didn't like that so much.

After tubing for a while. We decided go try the paddle boats. Well, Naomi, Zoey, and Caleb were too young so Debra and I took them back so Cory and Gene could take Riley and Jessy. But Gene ended up coming with us so Cody could ride on the paddle boats too. Sondra watched Zoey and Naomi so Debra and I could go do the paddle boats. Instead, we rode on the water trikes. It was fun and tough.

After spending the day at the beach, we sadly headed back to the boat. We headed back around 4 because everyone needed to be on the boat by 5.

Once back on the boat, we got all cleaned up and ready for our Pirate Night dinner. Before we were seated we took pictures with Pirate Mickey. If you can't tell Naomi is in her pirate costume, but she refused to wear the pirate hat.

Dinner was at Parrot Cay again and the food was yummy. Here are our servers in their pirate getup.

After dinner, we went and saw the movie Princess and the Frog. Naomi loves this movie so she was so excited to see it again.

After the movie, Naomi was exhausted so we headed back to our room to put her to bed. This was what our stateroom host left us. Naomi loved the monkey.

They had a pirate party later that night, but we were too tired to go, so we fell asleep to a movie in our stateroom.

It was an awesome day! We wished we could have had another day at Castaway Cay.

Wow... that beach is absolutely beautiful! The water is crystal clear as well! I love pretty water like that! That guy really looks like the real Jack Sparrow! At least from the pictures anyways. I'm so glad that you guys had such an amazing time!
