some of our group headed out deep sea fishing and nabbed nine mahi mahi. we delivered three to the hotel kitchen and we had a personal chef prepare them for our group dinner the following night in our suite. (we stayed at the caribbean club - it was very comfortable but not the best 'hotel' experience. it's more of a time share.)

we also took a jaunt to 'stingray city' to swim with and feed the stingrays. it was equally weird, frightening and fun.

I'm so glad I had my badass big girl camera with me (and Bob's go-pro for the stingray shot above) and I'm very thankful that we had a chance to be together one more time before school picked up again and we all head off in different directions. summer 2015, you were pretty great.
