Getting Ready To Ship Out

Another hot day in Pasadena.  We'll be getting packed & ready to "ship out"tomorrow afternoon.  They request that you be there 3 to 4 hours before departure time and we're scheduled to leave at 5pm.  It's about a 45 minute drive from here to the Los Angeles Cruise Center in San Pedro.  Our cruising schedule will be; departure Monday about 5pm, Tuesday we'll be in San Diego from 8am to 5pm, Wednesday we'll be   at Avalon on Catalina Island all day and then Thursday we'll be in Ensenada Mexico and Friday morning back at the Los Angeles Cruise Center.

We checked the mileage on the truck yesterday afternoon and we drove 1,380 miles from my place to Bob's daughter's place here in Pasadena. Had we come straight down I-5 it would have been much shorter...but certainly not as scenic.   The big Chevy with the camper on the back...gets about 10-12 miles to the gallon.  We were able to find gas for less than $4 a gallon all the way down the coast. He spent $441 total on gas so far.  

Well, that's all for now.  We're going to go to Target because I'm totally out of batteries for my camera & we all know Linda needs her camera to work! 

Have a good week.....I'll catch you when I can.  Linda

Wow, that's a lot of miles!  And the petrol costs! wow.  Our petrol has dropped a bit in price now, but it's still expensive.  Who would have thought a year ago that we'd be paying what we are.  It's incredible.
Have a lovely cruise!

So THAT is where you are going....must confess I am envious as we have frost on the ground most mornings although yesterday it was HOT.

Just read Jeannette's blog about the journals shutting down....hope if true we can still stay in touch...

Have a great time you and Bob....and we will be looking forward to pictures.

Blesings,

Have a wonderful trip Linda, I am glad you liked the book it seemed like a good one.  Looking forward to hearing about your trip, although I see the Journals are shutting down which is very sad.
