Today started with tennis as usual but after 30 minutes the heavens opened up and turned tennis into a watersport....delay for an hour, significant court squeegeeing let us play eventually.

After lunch we decided to watch the arrivals at Sunset Beach....bad plan.....had to be one million people on the beach. I have never seen it that crowded so blew that off and took a ride around beacon hill, Jordan Village and Porto Cupecoy. Maybe a total of 6 people dining total at the restaurants at Cupecoy..at 1pm. Jordan Village much more inhabited.

Went back to Sunset and at least 900,000 of the one million had left so we hung out there for a bit until Mother Nature said "Go home or wet"...we did see a few biggies arrive and the last was Air France...always impressive

Back to SBR and helped a friend hook up his Amazon stick so he could get Netflix...took a few tries but eventually sucessful

Plan was to go to Lee's for dinner BUT when we got there we were told it was not open for dinner...."maybe Friday"....turns out this has been an issue for a bit. Plan B....wander...maybe Nowhere Special for a meal on their deck overlooking the water....ummm deck isn't operational anymore...plan C ...none...maybe BBB again but wandered past Captain's Rib Shack and got into a VERY interesting conversation with "CaptaIn" talking about the ribs, his work as a pilot for WinAir, John Legend who has been there three times but he missed all of them...decided to get their ribs (after trying samples) and it was a good choice...

Presently emptying a few Corona's watching Harmony of the Seas wander back west towards the USA with a stop in the Bahamas

Pics....SSB, wreck at Beacon Hill...BSV in the distance

Edit: and going with the topic.... Harmony of the Seas (going to the Bahamas) was almost out of view in the west and then turned around and now is across from La Vista heading back to port....inquiring minds want to know....

Hey, thanks for the report and the pics! Today was Wednesday, which historically is the most ships in, so that would account for the huge numbers of people at Sunset. It really is tough to even drive through that area when there are lots of ships in.

You would think Da Boat would have fallen apart and rolled into the water by now. What a wreck! Has any thought been given to pulling/rolling it over into the water? Artificial reef? Any toxic substance is long gone.
