Survivor...Island Princess Style

As you recall, last Friday Grandma J fled  The Great Flood of 2011 town, heading down the highway to seek refuge along the muddy Red River in Louisiana.  

Well, while she was living it up at the blackjack tables drowning her sorrows, her granddaughter, Beauty, whose official Indian Princess name is Little Dancing Dolphin  was having a similar water type weekend with her dad, whose official Indian Princess Dad's name is Big Laughing Shark.


Little Dancing Dolphin  and  the rest of the tribe, headed 26 miles across the sea  to the island called Santa Catalina, or just Catalina for short.


The back side of the Island is where all the camps are, and the place where Little Dancing Dolphin's   Indian Princess Tribe travels for their annual Survivor Camp.  OK, so Grandma J made that part up.  She knows there has to be an official name for this excursion, and she thinks Survivor Camp fits the bill.


So, while Big Laughing Shark  and the other dads do whatever Indian Princess Dads do, the Princesses fill their three days with exciting adventures........

Like befriending snakes.....

And enjoying some quality time with sharks!!


You can't be a well rounded Indian Princess if you aren't a good markswoman.   Little Dancing Dolphin  hit her mark!

So, I suppose you wonder how Big Laughing Shark  and the other dads passed away the weekend?  Well, of course they had some adult competitions, and Little Dancing Dolphin  was so proud of Big Laughing Shark  because he won the most important competition all weekend...

Are you ready for this?

Can you tell Grandma J is overwhelmed with pride for  Big Laughing Shark?


That's right....As part of the initiation for being next year's Indian Princess Chief or now PC Circle Navigator is the traditional belly flop competition. Big Laughing Shark  won!


xoxo Grandma J
