I would love your assessment when you go to hear how the island has fared. I know they designed the water park to withstand hurricane winds. I would be curious if the cabanas were removable and they could store them for safe keeping till after the storm passes.

I suspect RCI has some way to protect these structures that bring them $1200 per day.

That's what I would assume too. They put a lot of money into CoCo Cay and I sure the architects were told to design it so it could withstand a major hurricane.

I cannot remember which Hurricane caused damage to Labadee a few years back.

 

On Barefoot beach two of the water front cabanas have yet to be rebuilt.

The concrete base is still there.

Just saying.

 

Safe travels.

Referring to each cabana... of which there are dozens if not a hundred.

Officially we sail Wednesday night, but I doubt that will happen.

 

Breezy morning here

Hoping your area gets spared by Dorian!! My sister is stationed in Jax Beach and is a little worried about the storm surge - She lives across the street from the beach.  Keep us up todate on how it goes...

With Dorian being a cat 5 now....you can pretty much say goodbye to Coco Cay.  

Not so.  CocoCay is 45 miles south of the hurricane so they will (or did) sustain some damage but it’ll still be there.   I’m curious though if it’ll open for next weeks cruises.

IMHO....That would be a no.

Rig up a pulley system and you can lower Bella out and down off the balcony so she can do her business😇

Get a roll of sod and put it on your balcony.... slide door open, potty on sod, slide door closed.

Cooking food in freezer

Last Publix run,  they closed at noon.

Neighbors for early dinner

Board games and cocktails

Watching waves and weather reports

How do you cook food in the freezer? I seriously need to know this!


When the only tool you have is a freezer, everything looks like a popsicle.

Wow...so much devastation just to the north.  So sad for Grand Bahama Island.  Guess Coco Cay was spared.  Still...with how slow and way past date of completion of the original installation of "theme park".  Wonder if they are jumping the gun on that one as well?

 

Then again...$$$$ speaks.   They are losing out on those 1200.00 Cabana rentals right now.  😉

Perfect hurricane party!  Stay safe...have fun!  🙂   And keep us posted!  I am missing out on the big hurricane party in "the swamp".  😮
