Back on Land

Hello everyone...we are back on land.  The cruise was wonderful and we had such a good time....except it was too short. Tuesday we went to the San Diego Zoo and after a 35 minute tour bus ride (thru the park) Bob rented a motorized wheel chair so I could see the zoo and not have to walk for miles and miles.  You should have seen this old lady zooming around that zoo.  Wednesday we spent the day on Catalina Island.  We took a 50 minute tour there, heard a lot about the history of the island )and then just wandered around the shops, etc on our own before returning to the ship.  But, I did have a situation that re-injured my knee on Wednesday evening...so spent the rest of the curise using a wheel chair and was uanable to go ashore in Ensenada, Mexico.  :(    I was so upset...I just stayed in the cabin taking tylenol & icing my leg and watching movies on the cabins TV.  Bob did go on the excursion we had signed up for, because I at least wanted to see some pictures of the area.  When Bob got back to ths ship, we took me up to the pool deck where I could at least look out across the water at the city. 

We met two wonderful couples at dinner.  One couple was from Orange Country here in California and the other said they were "rednecks" from Tennessee.  We enjoyed each evening, spending a couple hours with them over dinner.

Well, that's all for now...just wanted you to know we were back from the cruise...so until next time,  Linda

Glad to see you're back. Sounds like a fun trip (other than the knee). I can imagine you in a motorized wheelchair.....

Welcome home, Linda.  I'm glad you are back safe and sound, but sorry to hear about your knee.  Those motorized wheelchairs are fun to fool around with, though, aren't they?

Hi Linda,

Glad you are back safe and sound.   Sounds like you and I could have been good ship mates....Sorry as I was that we could not fully enjoy all the aspects of the cruise.
Hubby let me convince him to use one of those motorized scooters at DISNEYLAND and what a good idea that was....plus Noah thought it was THE best ride of all.   No problems until we were turning it back and greeted with a nasty and firm "you are not supposed to allow anyone else on these!!"

Take care and will look forward to more news.
I am still "under the weather" although the acid reflex RX has started to ease my discomfort.

Blessings,
Lori

Well I'm glad you had a good time.  Sorry that you didn't get to do all you wanted, maybe next time.  That would be a good way to see the zoo.  Hope you enjoy your nice weather down there it's very cloudy up here and not that warm.  Joni

Glad you had a nice time Linda, but sorry that your knee acted up.  Can't wait to see the pictures.  I have always thought one of the nicest things about these types of excursions, be it a cruise or a bus tour, is the people you get to meet and make friends with!
love,
Marie

Happy you are back but so sorry to hear your knee caused you so much trouble.  I bet you were zooming around, I hope you used the horn if you had one.  Glad you still had a wonderful cruise despite your knee.

Sounds like you are having a great time!  Enjoy this freedom and I look forward to continued reports.

Off to read some back dated entries that I've missed (I've been reading, not commenting much = the lurker!)

Hey Lindy Lou,

Eagerly awaiting some pictures and all that from the cruise....
Hope your knee is better.   I am on the mend with my black and pink pills (not purple) so annoyed I never got some help on the cruise.

Love and blessings,

Lori
