I love zombies, vampires, werewolves, sci-fi and so Halloween season is fun… especially, living near a theme park known for movie-making. Without traffic, Universal Studios is about a 45 minute to 1 hour drive. The cool, breeze evening 71°F made for a comfortable event. Here’s the haunted houses we enjoyed this year and why it pays to buy an Express Pass.
Not only a great opportunity for wildlife photography but a chance to pet animals while walking through a beautiful botanical garden on a beach-front park preservation at 20-acre Gumbalimba Park. Our tour wasn’t an official photo walk, but I created my own photo scavenger hunt as the park features white faced capuchin monkeys, exotic birds and other indigenous island animals. Enjoy a glimpse of the park through our photo walk.
You can do as much or as little as you want on a sea day from soaking in the sun at the pool, attend a trivia gathering at one of the pubs, learn line dancing, take a sushi making class… but we like being active so here’s some of the fun aboard Allure of the Seas.
Who doesn’t look forward to dining on a cruise vacation?! You can eat all you want. Then, skip the bill. Don’t be shy to ask for seconds. Everyone does it or they’ll follow suit, too. Enjoy our cruise food journal.
Our first port stop on our 7-night Royal Caribbean Caribbean cruise, was to Nassau. Originally, I was supposed to jump on this food tour with mom on her 80th birthday cruise. Hurricane Irma changed our plans. Thoughtfully, Murray Sweeting gave us a credit & allowed us to reschedule – even 1yr later!
We received ~$600 credit in order to reserve this cruise accumulated from a Casino Bonus offer and partial refund from our noisy stateroom aboard the Serenade of the Seas in April. How couldn’t we take the opportunity for cruise travel before these credits expired?! Wouldn’t you SetSail? We were able to reserve Stateroom Cabin: 104, Deck: 9 which is my favorite ocean view room! Get familiar with Allure of the Seas with our photo tour.
From taking Ice Skating Lessons at the Ice Sports Forum in order to eventually take their Learn Hockey class, we enjoy a game of H-O-R-S-E and/or “Around the World” to keep us active. Luckily, we have the Mike E Sansone Community Park nearby.
Weather looming, a nice breeze and the sounds of thunder in the distance but that didn’t stop us from continuing to fish. Bill’s nephew Andy is quite the fisherman so he gave us some tips and had himself the right lures for the type of fish found here.
