Stranded on CocoCay!
I found these hilarious pictures this morning and just had to share them. When my husband and I were dating we went on a cruise. We took a little day trip to this tiny island called, "CocoCay" A huge storm came in unexpectedly and we couldn't get back to the ship. We ended up having to stay all night on the island in the storm. Now, there are no hotels, no restaurants, no nothing. We literally had to make a shelter and sleep in the sand. When you only plan to stay somewhere for 3 hours you just don't bring a lot. There were babies without diapers and formula. Elderly people without their meds.,diabetics, etc. Not to mention we were all freezing to death. It's fun to look back and laugh at the pictures, but it could have been a real tragedy.
My mom went to the same island last year and they have built emergency shelters. A little late for us, but at least no one else will have such a miserable vacation.
