So I am thinking that it really does not matter what day we did things right? Cause I want to post the rest of my pics…well not all of them, but at least finish up our trip.
When last we visited the Gibbs' family in Fiji Jeff had just tackled a mud crab for supper the night before. Let's see what they are up to today…
We went for a walk on the beach collecting shells, and Jeff wrote in the sand. Unfortunately the beach was not the kind you swim in, it was more for sailing, and stuff, but thankfully the pool at the resort was gorgeous so we didn't really miss the beach.
We had a children's choir sing for us and I didn't get that good of a picture. They were so cute, and they were all sizes too, from where they were being carried to teenage. They waved to us as they went off stage.
Stampin' Up! asked me to Demonstrate at the share, so here I am…oh so lovely…ha!
Jeff was up bright and early the next morning and took a picture of the sun rise.
Wanna know why he was excited? We were going Sailing and Snorkeling. This is what we had been waiting for.
All ready to get going. You know me and my worrying…I was not sure if I should wear my hearing aids or not. I would have to take them out to snorkel and then wondered if they would get stepped on. I had got contacts to wear so I could see under water. I ended up taking my hearing aids and nothing happened…of course. I wasted a worry MAMMa.
That is Jeff. I worried about him cause he almost drowned years ago, most of us used pool noodles and I wished he had one too, but with the salt water it kept you afloat, and he did fine, but still I kept an eye on him without him really knowing it.
Enough of us, this is the great part. So anyway Calvin asked who all had underwater cameras, and a bunch did and then he said who had digital and I put my hand up, and he asked how deep it would go and I said 59 feet, and he said he would get me some good pictures. I told him that I am deaf and when we got in the water I wouldn't be able to hear and he said he would take care of me, and to watch his hand signals. So we all jumped in the water and started to snorkel. It was amazing and I didn't even think till later that there could have been sharks.
So then we got to a spot and Calvin took my camera and down he went.
There it is, of course we are like huh, it looks like a worm, but then we looked online later and they curl up to swim, so this is neat. Then Calvin said I am going to go get a picture of a sting ray.
Isn't that the neatest thing? Look at the blue on it? I mean these pictures make the cost of the camera so worth it. Oh and this is the camera we got: Nikon Coolpix AW110, it has Wifi, GPS, an HD and it might even pop popcorn, ok just kidding, but I really liked it, and so did Jeff he carried it most of the time and since it is rugged, I was not worrying about it.
The guys sang and entertained us all the way back. Even a Johnny Cash song.
What an amazing day! We were tired!
I'll share some random pictures I took..
So when we finally landed in Phoenix, after 13 hours or something…the guys went to the bathroom and I saw this tall guy walking and then he sat down not far from us. I smiled at him and he smiled back and I said to Lorri "I think that is Dan Majerle" and she didn't know who he was. So I got my camera and I said "I'm gonna go ask him", so I went over and sat beside him and leaned over and said "are you Dan Majerle?" and he said "yes", so I asked if I could get my picture taken with him and he said sure. I told him I wanted my husband to meet him and then next thing I knew Jeff and Dan were walking up to us, so I told Dan Marjerle "watch this" so I just sat there smiling and I could see Jeff look at me like who the heck is she sitting with and then as he got closer, his face all lit up and he put his hand out and was like "wow, nice to meet you" I wish I had of taken a picture of that. Jeff and Dan (Lorri's Dan) were pretty impressed I knew who he was.
Well I do have videos I took but that will have to be another time, this might be the longest post I have ever done.
Have an awesome Tuesday and thanks for stopping in.
