They are on the ship & I am on the shore~

Well, our ship (Royal Caribbean's Vision of the Seas) left for the Mexican Rivera this evening about 5pm.  Bob & I watched the clock all afternoon ~ 1:30pm; we'd be up in the Windjammer having a fine buffet lunch.   3pm; we'd be in our cabin putting away our clothes now.  4:30pm; get your life jacket on, lets go to our muster station.  5pm; life jackets off & put away in the cabin...lets get up on deck and join the "sail away" party.  On and on it went and when we saw the big full moon, I told Bob here we are "land locked" and they are out sailing under a big full moon.    Hopefully they will have smooth sailing and not be troubled by the approaching hurricanes. I've left my email address with the folks that signed up for the "Meet & Mingle" event so I bet I'll hear first hand about their adventures.

It was a cooler day here today.  I would imagine in the low 70's but the weatherman has said to expect 90* by Tuesday.  I'm hoping we can start heading north Wednesday or Thursday at the latest. 

Did everyone have a good weekend?   I hope so.....until next time,  Linda

Awwww - I am so sorry to hear you couldn't take your cruise.  Well, there will be others I'm sure but what a bummer.  I had to cancel a cruise at the last minute when my horse kicked me in the belly so I know how you are feeing.  I can't wait till you get home and get your new blog up & running.
