Swimsuits Hold Up Well!

We had a lovely anniversary weekend in the Bahamas - shout-out to my Mom for making it possible for us to go and leave poor Lucas behind with her. Here's a shot of our view - gorgeous, even with rain moving in.

The seagulls were rather aggressive if you left your breakfast undefended.

Here's some gorgeous water, but I don't think you can see the iguanas on this island. We fed them grapes on sticks, and they were huge.

This one was not nearly as big but did intend on checking my beach bag for more grapes.

And here's the promised action shot of the one-piece. Seemed to hold up well, but I didn't get it completely wet since the water was a little cold.

This was amazing to me - have you ever seen 5 cruise ships lined up in a harbor?! The one on far left was allegedly the largest cruise ship in the world, Allure of the Seas, where you can join 7000 of your closest friends and 2000 crew members, according to a local.

So now for some videos. We went on a "Powerboating" trip where they race you southeast for one hour to a private island, then entertain you with shark wrangling and stingray feeding. Also "drift snorkeling," but the current was so strong that it only lasted about 5 minutes (which was reduced to 2 minutes when I mistook our intended location and struck out Michael Phelps-style for a far island - heehee). Here's some of the boat ride with blaring music to make you feel cool. Before this they were playing Miami Vice.

Here's "shark wrangling" where they lasso an unsuspecting shark and make him submit....not sure WHY you do this, but look at all those sharks!

And finally, here's the tankini in action while I feed a stingray....except I only had one piece of fish, so the second one who came along just got my knuckle - ewwww! And then one came back from the lady next to me and ended up in my lap, but Dean stopped filming before that happened, which is lucky, because I ended up stumbling backwards and falling in the water. Way to make friends, Dr. Fun!

So, back to work now, but that swimsuit sewing marathon really paid off! Anyone else having a sewing binge?

What a fun trip! Looked wonderful.

Now that Halloween costumes are behind me, I'm going to make myself an easy dress with some of my Mood fabric I've been hoarding. Joann's has Vogue, Simplicity, & McCall patterns on sale. I picked up a few today and hope to cut one out before the end of the week.
