We arrived this afternoon in Eluthera after five days in Little San Salvador. Little San Salvador has been purchased and renamed by the Holland-America Cruise Line. So now it is a private island named Half Moon Cay. It is a gorgeous island. The island has been set up with private cabanas, a water park, a stable for 20 or so horses. There are only a handful of workers to manage the island when the ship isn't in. The day before the cruise ship came in, the island became alive. It is instantly transformed from a sleepy island to a commercial resort. There are 50 or so employees that are brought in from the neighboring island. Everything is set up for the masses and the water park springs to life. Those of you who know DJ will know that he can get just about anything from anyone. So... he became friendly with the horse trainer and the kids from Beach Magic, Lauriann and Maxim along with DJ and Nicole were able to ride the horses. What a treat! The cruise ship arrived with 1000 plus people. We thought we could blend in, however, we have deep tans and all of the cruise ship occupants were various shades of white and pink. Just like cruise ship style, they had a beautiful buffet. So the Dream Catcher crew along with the Beach Magic crew got into our pirate mode and joined in. The kids kept commenting on the large mountain of fruit. We all filled our plates with fresh fruit before moving on the main courses. They served some desserts, but we all preferred the melons! We stuffed ourselves! After gorging ourselves, we layed under the caserina and palm trees while listening to the Reggae band. We actually felt like we were on vacation. Although the guys really wanted a cold beer, they couldn't get one since the island only takes your cruising card. Bummer! At the end of the day, the cruisers were headed back to the ship and the employees tried to round us up, when we had to confess that we were on different ships. They smiled at us and told us to have a nice evening. Next stop....Eluthera for the election
