Okay. So I am now starting a new thread in our Pirate's Forum for the August mini-meet. The dates are 08/10/2012 through 08/14/2012. No need to come for the entire stay if things such as work prevent you (as in my case). I would suppose that the main meal will be Saturday night at the Parc Corniche restaurant (The Calypso). To make the reservation at the hotel, the link is http://parccorniche.com/ . The rates are $69.00 for a 1 bedroom suite on the weekdays and $79.00 on the weekend. Suites include full kitchen (except for oven), living area, dining area and bedroom. If you have stayed there before, be sure to mention that fact to get a 10% discount.

By the way...the new Walgreens at International and I-Drive has now opened if you need any essentials and the new Wawa (the first in FL, same corner as the Walgreems) has also opened. Wawa has some great choices for subs, sandwiches, etc. ( www.wawa.com (http://www.wawa.com) )

We are planning on coming over and hanging out with you guys. Probably will sleep at home though, since we only live 1/2 hr. away. Should be able to arrive a little earlier on Saturday than we did the last time, since I'm off that day. :D

Looking forward to seeing everyone again and meeting those that were not there the last time!

Steve and I are hoping to be there, it just depends when we can get to North Carolina to see our new granddaughter. Well she isn't here yet, she should be arriving in a week or so! We don't want to go to soon after she's born, want to let them get a little settled in. All depends on when I can get off of work on a Fri and Mon. If thats the wekend I can get off then we'll be in North Carolina.

Great Karen.....we will be there about 6:30. Had planned on having the day off, but was asked to cover for a co-worker at Epcot. Couldn't pass up the extra cruise money!:eek: I get off at 6, so will come straight from work and will have Garry meet me there.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!:D

I spoke to Donna last night at the Calypson and told her to expect 10 or 12 for dinner (inside) that night. She is off that day but she WILL be sure to pass the word. I also mentioned that we might do breakfast Sunday morning so that they would not have the short staff when we were there last time. The food and the company was great. It was the looooong wait for service that was a hassle.

You say that everything is packed? He sounds like the planner in the family. Does that mean that we won't go thirsty at the Parc?

The pool floating lounger is blown up and is in the back seat of the car right now. Wait till Barry sees my four bags that I am bringing... I can see his face now. :eek:

Don't forget we are celebrating Kat & Roger's anniversary too!
Isabel and Hermes 42nd Anniversary is on tuesday, Aug 14th. They have not been feeling well , so they won't be coming to the Parc.
It is also E-Beth's birthday on Tuesday, Aug 14th.

Wishing all a Happy Friday! It's ribs dinner at the VFW tonight, and you all know the rest of the story!

After we got out of church on Sunday Roger had to put in a 10 hour day at work so that he could get time off to be with us this time at the Parc. So I was sound asleep when he got home around 11pm. So we thought we would save the celebration until we were all together.

Ahoy Mateys....
My dates may not be on the money, but I know I can depend on you all to correct me if I am off some......
I love any excuse to celebrate and have fun with t' mateys.

Our dinner at the VFW was a good one with Peach cobbler with ice cream for dessert. The $7 meal was well worth it, especially since you did not have to start any fires in the kitchen. :rolleyes:

My bags are at the front door, and Barry has not commented that I over-packed yet.. I know, that's coming soon.

Kat & Roger must be soaring in the sky by now, and David and Nancy are driving in Florida somewhere.
We wish you all a safe trip to the Parc.

See you all soon!

We spent the afternoon at the pool. There were lots of kids there also.
Dinner was at the Bar & Grill. It was pizza night for the group, but the pies came out slowly due to the small oven. A few of us had salads which were very good. Donna was the only server last night, so it was a little slow.

Barry played guitar, and David serenaded us with Elvis tunes.

Everyone is up and getting ready for breakfast. It's blue skies with some clouds so far this morning.
Planning another pool day.

Miss all that could not make it.

I am so sad that I could not make it. I really wish I had called in sick and headed down to the Parc. Work this month is awful.

Have a fantastic time, drink lots of grog and don't get sunburned.

Figure out what nights to do Chops and Portifino's and count me and Tony in. Can't wait to try the new menu's in the dining room.

I miss you all so much! looking forward to seeing everybody and hopefully you will be seeing less of me if you know what I mean (after the surgery :D). For once in my life, I am looking forward to getting a new bathing suit and finally being able to fit into a Victoria's Secret bra.

Seen any Blarney Stones this visit?

Love to all - Miss you!

We will be thinking of you in these upcoming weeks.

A new bathing suit is a nice incentive!

We are back home after a wonderful mini-meet.
Now I can put a face with the name; Sharon it was great meeting you and Gary.
It has been a very long time since I had seen Karen and was very sorry that she could not be with us on Sunday. We met Steve and he seems like great Pirate material.;):D
We will be looking forward to our next adventure on the Freedom, next month.

Parrotheadtoo
August 15th, 2012, 05:36 PM
Ahoy Mateys...

Yep, Steve is pirate material who will be sailing on the Freedom for those who have not met him yet.

All in all, we had a low key relaxing few days at the pool. We spent Monday night eating a light dinner at the Bar & Grill. We then went back to the room to listen to Barry's new song that he composed.

We wish to thank those who have contributed to the the new music room... It was quite a surprise, and we can hardly wait to find a new home for the items!

Hopefully we will find out why the Freedom spent some extra time the first night of the cruise along the Cocoa Beach coast..
