happy anniversary cruise
for our second anniversary we got to go on a free cruise to the bahamas. sonicflood played on the "cruise for a cause" and i got to come along for free! we flew into orlando on monday the 4th and left out of port canaveral. we got to nassau, bahamas sometime in the night. the guys had to play a show on the island for some school kids, so brooke, (the bass player's wife) max (their 7 week old son) and i spent the afternoon wondering around the straw market. It was pretty hot so we decided to find a beach. i had seen one from the ship and as we were trying to find it we realized it was for the guests of the british colonial hilton only. well, forget that! we said. so we walked straight through the looby and out onto the beach. thank you hiltons for allowing us to use your beach, your beach chairs and towls and sunshade free of charge! :) here is our boat from the beach. ours in the one in the middle. later that night the guys had a concert for the bahamian (not bohemian) people. it was pretty cool and a lot of people came. later that night as we were waiting in line to show our seapasses to get back onto the dock where the boat was, the best thing happened! i found 50 bucks!! 50! it was just laying on the ground-wahoo me!
well the next day we were supposed to go to cococay, an island owned by royal carribean, but it was too stormy, so the captain said we would go on thursday instead. we entertained ourselves with a card game called Joe! It's pretty fun, but kind of a long game. thanks to justin, who hates cards, for playing anyway! you're great. (and he won.) well we did get a pretty good storm with lightning and thunder and all. question...how close to do you have to be to a lightning strike in the ocean to get electrocuted? anyone who knows the answer, or just wants to speculate, feel free to leave a comment. anyways... we were supposed to go to cococay on thursday, but it was too stormy then too. so basically the one day we had sun, justin and i weren't able to hang out. i was really bummed about that, but at least we had an awesome room with a great balcony! we got back early friday morning and the wives flew back to nashville while the band went on to new york for another show. ahhh the life of a musician.
