Wordless Wednesday – Castaway Cay

by Janice


If you happen to read my post the other day, you know I lost my camera bag with my beloved Canon 40D in the airport on my way to Orlando.

BUT, Kodak is the sponsor of the Disney Channel Summer at Sea, and they were so kind as to lend me a M863 digital camera!!! THANKS KODAK!

Here is a shot I took today of Castaway Cay, featuring the REAL ship from the Pirates of the Caribbean, alongside the fabulous Disney Wonder.

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

I’m SOOO glad they’re taking care of your camera needs!! That’s a relief! I hope y’all have an AMAZING trip, and I can’t wait to hear about it!!

Great pic! That is amazingly cool!

Lummy that linky thing is new and strange and scary……anyway……sorry about the camera. I lost mine at the beach once when I was accidentally swallowed by a wave, or rather the camera was, complete with all my holiday piccies. So my advice to one and all would be, ‘please lose your camera in the airport before the holiday.’ There again I don’t have friends in high and lofty place, such as Kodak :)

Sweeet shot!


8 Mrs Cox July 15, 2009 at 12:11 am

Awesome photo! Was that the Flying Dutchmen in the movie? The name of the other boats evade me aside from that and the Black Pearl of course.

Happy W/W :)

Um yeah….so THAT camera worked out pretty well then — great vibrant shot! You must have wanted to throw up when you discovered your camera was gone – I would have.


10 Tina July 15, 2009 at 12:12 am

awesome photo……totally looked like a post card!! nice shot!!
happy WW :)


11 Joy July 15, 2009 at 12:13 am

I love the photo with the “old” and the new. I’m always a big fan of contrast in a shot and this is a great example!


12 jen July 15, 2009 at 12:16 am

What an awesome shot. I like the contrast of the old/new ships.


13 Jenny July 15, 2009 at 12:27 am

That is such a cool shot! Kudos to Kodak, that’s awesome.


14 Princess MAR The Pink Haired Momma July 15, 2009 at 12:27 am

19 JamericanSpice July 15, 2009 at 1:30 am

Sorry you lost your camera and I’m glad they were so kind to help out with another good one.

Awesome shot! I’d love to see in person.


20 Daddydayone July 15, 2009 at 1:30 am

Whoa The Dutchman, I hope you didn’t become part of the crew, part of the ship.


21 purplemoose July 15, 2009 at 1:39 am

Well, a loaner camera is better than nothing. . . but I’m sure you’d still rather have yours back! Happy cruising!


22 Kekibird July 15, 2009 at 1:55 am

Wow, that’s an amazing shot. Kinda creepy that boat is…


23 eastcoastlife July 15, 2009 at 2:06 am

You were luck there was someone to lend you a camera. I would love to go on that creepy ship!


24 Deb - Mom of 3 Girls July 15, 2009 at 4:01 am

That’s awesome that they were able to lend you a camera! I was still hoping yours would turn up – I’m so sorry it was lost.

Gorgeous photo! :)


25 Kim July 15, 2009 at 7:10 am

27 Swoozie July 15, 2009 at 7:31 am

Ooooh! What a great picture! That’s something you don’t see every day!


28 The Gang's Momma July 15, 2009 at 7:32 am

Not loving the new linky thing – wasn’t clear whether they wanted my blog name or my post title. Oh well, that’s me, under the skinned knee heading! Li’l Empress’s perfect little knees now have a scab :(

Love the pic – feels like a Calgon take me away moment. Or maybe I just really really need a Calgon moment :) Glad you got a camera to use in the meantime. Been praying for someone to turn in your lost one. Holy Spirit conviction and all!


29 TheAngelForever July 15, 2009 at 7:49 am

So glad that Kodak saved the cruise (picture wise at least). Can not wait to hear more about the trip. As huge Disney fans we have always dreamed about going on their cruise.


30 Melanie July 15, 2009 at 7:53 am

Awesome shot!
