This morning we woke up super early because we chose to do Express Debarkation. There are 2 ways to leave the ship. One is you go to breakfast then go pick up your luggage. The second is express debarkation where you take your own luggage and leave without having breakfast. We had the later seating for dinner which meant we wouldn’t be having breakfast until 9:15 am, so we chose to hop off the ship early and tote our own luggage instead.
Check out the cutest security dog ever!!!
Everything went really smoothly and we were in our FILTHY car in no time! Hurricane Ian left my poor Hazel the Hyundai covered in dirt and debris! Poor girl! We went to Southern Charm Cafe for breakfast. It was delicious as always and we were on the road before we would have been seated at our scheduled breakfast on the Wish!
Just before leaving Florida, we stopped for gas & snacks at Buc-ee’s again. When we walked in I heard CSP exclaim from behind me “Buc-ee is here!”. Sure enough, the beaver himself was right there in the plush! CSP was so excited to get his picture with him!
We loaded up on road snacks, beverages, and even a hat for CSP before heading north again. When we got to Orangeburg we stopped and had an early dinner with my father & Mimi at Cracker Barrel. I swear, all these roadside stores with their tempting seasonal merchandise!!!
The drive home up I-95 wasn’t bad, though we did see some dirt and debris in some areas from Ian. We were just so thankful my car was still ok after sitting there all week! It could have been much worse and our hearts broke for those affected.
We had a wonderful week! So relaxing and so much fun! Especially with the 2 bonus cruise days thrown in! There’s no better way to ride out a hurricane than on a Disney ship! The Wish is an absolutely beautiful ship and we really loved our time on it!!!
In case you were wondering about our pups while we were cruising… they were at home being taken care of by Mom of CSP. She came and stayed the week at our house with the pups and spoiled them rotten- just as they should be!!!
It was so good to get back home and hug our pups but we can’t wait for our next cruise adventure!!!
