Foto Flashback Friday ~ The Wonder

It's Foto Flashback Friday and once again we've entered the Wayback Machine and discovered (unearthed) some new old photos to share with you. 
So sit back relax and let's begin our journey back in time to 2001 and the a Wonder-filled cruise to Freeport in The Bahamas on The Disney Wonder. 
It was August and hot, similar to the weather we're having now. DH and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. This pic was unearthed this week because we'll be celebrating our 35th anniversary in just a few days. It's so hard to believe it's been that long!

The morning we were docked in Freeport we were scheduled to go on a diving excursion out on the island. When we showed up at our schedule dive spot there was no one there. Disappointed the boys decided they rather hang out with friends back on the ship but DH and I decided to take in the sites in the local area. Wandering around the docks we spotted a huge beautiful catamaran sailboat that offered snorkeling cruises. Well, that seemed like a fun idea so we signed up. What a lovely day we had! The snorkeling was amazing as was the sailing, drinks and music. The captain had a very good spot for snorkeling pretty far off the island.
Que the music for Gilligan's Island. The the sky turned dark as you can see from the pic and the seas became rough. Yup, we knew if we didn't get back to port we were in trouble. Earlier we had been talking to the captain about sailing and how once I'd gotten stuck in a storm in Plum Gut off Long Island. So while the captain and his mate were preparing for the storm they let me take the helm...briefly..but what a thrill it was! They got us back to the dock in just the nick of time. We hopped in a cab and back to our ship when the sky opened up with a fury.

Thanks for joining me today for Foto Flashback Friday and my nostalgic trip back in time. 


  1. Great story! I am glad you made it back to the port but its so cool that you were able to take the helm.

  2. Thanks Melissa, it was so cool. I have a picture somewhere that DH took. I'll post it when I find it.

    I remember what concerned me most was getting back to the Wonder before it set sail with my kids!
