    The tour is now over. Patti said that this tour was not worth the money, and would not recommend it. The driver drove to fast, making it difficult to get any good pictures. In addition, the bus itself was dirty, especially the windows!!!

    Patti is making her way through Margaritaville, on her way to meet me......

    After a drink or two, I decided to take a stroll down to Jack's Shack. Patti wanted to do a little shopping around Margaritaville, so we agreed to meet back at the loungers in an hour or so. I took the water camera again, and before heading to Jack's I took some shots around the pool area.

    The Flowrider was in action now.....

    There are people in the pool now.....

    Once we got back to the loungers, we decided that we had had enough, and to head back to the ship. I really missed not having a cabana, as it is a great place to cool down between adventures, relax, and enjoy a few quiet drinks. I'm so glad that we have one for our upcoming Breeze cruise. This is the view looking down the beach as we made our way onto the pier.....

    We hung out for a little while, and feeling hungry, we went up to the deli for a bite to eat. I had the arugula, pepper, and mozzarella on a cibatta roll, washing it down with a Corona. Sooooo good!!!

    Afterwards, we decided to head to the spa. We made our way to the Tepidarium, which is our favorite room in the spa.....
