You guys… Banana boating is crazier than white water rafting. Ours was definitely unbalanced from the start and we slowly began tipping over as our boat driver went crazy fast. All of a sudden, we flew off and into the water. Some people weren’t able to get back on the banana and rode in the boat so we didn’t have a problem after that. We were taken to the area where dolphin tours are given, and near multimillion dollar mansions, one of which was used in a Tyler Perry movie. We also stopped at this tiny little beach to take some pics. In this particular area, there are beautiful starfish unlike anything I’ve seen before. The water is so clear here that it cool things are easy to spot. Hopefully sharks weren’t too close by :o. On the way back, half of the boat fell off again, but not my side! I was so determined haha We tried to be present and not lose our phones to the ocean so this is an experience I will always remember and not just through pictures.
Justin came on a cruise a few days ago. It was his first cruise ever! We beached it up with my friends in West Palm on the first day and he came to my shows at night. After the show, he got conned into doing the dance contest. He ripped his shirt off and threw it on the floor in the middle of his dance. His team won! The next day we had a pretty cloudy day at the beach, but it was nice to chill and just be together. BBQ on the ship is my favorite so we got that before my shows. Our last night was spent at the comedy show which was so funny I cried a little. The next morning, we went to the mall and found him some cute clothes and got the best froyo from Forty Carrots at Bloomingdales. I am counting down to seeing him again.
My dad came to visit this past week and we had fun exploring West Palm. We got coffee and then lunch at ER Bradley’s. On the way to the restaurant I was interviewed by a news channel about the horrible Orlando shooting. I don’t even know what I said or if they’ll use it. Still pretty horrified by it all. After lunch, we walked along the water looking for manatees and then drove to Worth Avenue. We ended the day at a great, but pricey juice place near The Breakers. I was sick so ginger and turmeric were totally necessary. Missing my dad and hope his Father’s Day is fun.
We had such a great time on Clematis the other day at a cute coffee shop called Subculture and then at Haute Yoga for our new friend’s yoga class for her certification. She was great! I always feel awesome after hot yoga and it was a great warmup for our rehearsal later on followed by two shows. I will definitely be going back to the coffee shop too. I’ve missed REAL coffee haha
Yesterday, Tif and I walked to the marketplace near the ship since it wasn’t a great beach day. Every souvenir you can imagine is found here. I got a shirt I definitely didn’t need. Last night was pretty rocky on the ship. During one of our dances I swear we were sideways. I could not stop laughing. Hopefully this tropical storm goes away.
On our last trip to the Bahamas, we got yummy coconuts to drink from and then had a hell of a time cutting them open to eat the meat. So worth it! When we got back to Florida today, we did a relaxing beach side yoga class taught by the talented girlfriend of our choreographer. I felt so tall after class and even more zen after a jump in the ocean. What a fun day.
