Because Marty and I were away, Sandy Lindke was nice enough to tell me about their outing. She told me that a nice size group of residents showed up for a late lunch at the Zephyrhills Golden Corral on Jan. 13. She went on to mention that there were 46 people who attended and left stuffed. This was a nice time for chats and laughs, and it was hosted by Sandy. From what Sandy mentioned, there was a door prize won by Bill Elliott. It was a voucher to the next visit to Golden Corral, and it was picked by Mr. Tuttle from the signup sheet (The Tuttle family owns Golden Corral).
I am sure that most people thoroughly enjoyed themselves and found that time just flew by. If you have never gone to a Golden Corral, let me tell you that anything you could possibly think of is on this buffet.
In the meantime, while this lovely outing was going on, Marty and I went on a mini cruise to the Bahamas.
We had a lovely time aboard the cruise ship, and on the very first day after attending a mandatory fire drill, the ship hosted a sail away party.
Everyone mingled and got to know one another. There was much music and loads of conversation.
Later that night, we saw a comedy show which had everyone in stitches.
The following day, we attended many a trivia contest. They were so much fun, and I realized there was a lot we didn’t know.
The ship made a stop at Nassau, but since we were here before, we stayed onboard.
There was also an International Parade of Flags aboard the cruise line, where they celebrated the many nations represented by their crew onboard.
There was another comedy show that was entirely different than the first. Again, it was an absolute delight.
Later that night, there was the Love and Marriage game. This was a cute show and had some audience participation.
On the very last day, beside some more games, our travel agent (B & D Travel) hosted a show that was fabulous. It consisted of different types of music and songs, and there was quite a bit of dancing going on. There was also a hilarious special treat.
We were, at this time, also treated to some cocktails.
The very next day we made a stop at CocoCay, a private island, where they had vendors and swimming.
