On Tuesday of their voyage, "Flat" Cauli walked the plank to Grand Cayman island. She enjoyed the white, sandy beach. There was a human who climbed inside an inflatable ball and attempted to walk on top of the ocean. I would have paid good money from the library's coffers to have seen a video of that.
Wednesday's visit was to Roatan Island (Honduras), but "Flat" Cauli found it covered in jungle, loaded with spider monkeys (no fun being chased by them!), parrots (not nice like Sammy the Toucan), and pirates (more fun to hang with, but kind of rough gamesters). Boss Lady treated "Flat" Cauli to a spa and massage. That must have been heavenly!
Thursday "Flat" Cauli's retinue disembarked at Belize to snorkel the great barrier reef. Like many felines, "Flat" Cauli is not a water baby, and so she elected to remain aboard ship. She ventured aboard a dinghy, sitting along the side in anticipation of swimming dinners jumping out of the water into her mouth. No such luck, reported Boss Lady.
Boss Lady was concerned about shark encounters, but, fortunately, none occurred. She was equipped with a Swiss army knife, however, in the event that a shark attacked--not to use against the shark, but rather to stab her husband (and official "Flat" Cauli security dude) to save herself! That's fairly harsh, but we gals sometimes have to do what we have to do.
In a somewhat startling development, "Flat" Cauli considered getting a Henna tattoo! I'm not sure that would have fit with my feline image, but, hey, when travelling to exotic places, one considers all kinds of wild adventures. "Flat" Cauli also enrolled in an animal towel class. Boss Lady said that she made a monkey out of her towels, but that may have been euphemistic.
On Saturday Boss Lady and "Flat" Cauli met the captain of the Valor. The captain was naturally charmed by "Flat" Cauli, and he promptly provided her extra helpings from the seafood bar.
Sunday saw the journey's end when the ship landed in Miami. "Flat" Cauli found her retirement home in South Beach, as she and her entourage absorbed the local color and cuisine.
