Life could be a Dream…

DSCF9637or maybe a Fantasy…

In just about a day after I write this, Miss Bonnie and I will be sailing aboard the Disney Fantasy. Along with Bonnie’s Parental Units, her Offspring, the Elder Offspring’s Significant Other and a few hundred of our closest DIS friends, we’ll be eating, imbibing and generally engaging in lots of frivolity and jocularity around the Western Caribbean for a week…

So I thought I’d take some time now to share a few random pics (mostly food & beverage related of course!) from an excursion Bonnie & I took this summer on the sister ship of the Fantasy, the Disney Dream… so let’s take a look…

That’s it for now Dear Dedicated Readers… will be away for a bit, but I have plenty I want to share with you and will endeavor to do so as soon as possible (and I assume there will be even more to tell you about after this cruise)!

Usually it’s back to the kitchen, but this time it’s off to the Port! See you soon!
