My trip started out as such a surprise. Devin came down Sat night and loaded all the luggage into my SUV then Ken showed up at 6am and off we went. Almost at SFO and I found out he was going to fly with me to Long Beach because he didn't want me to be worried on my first solo trip with my scooter. We got to Long Beach and he took me over to see Kat's step mother and family that were at the house. Kat's (Ken's wife) father had passed away after a very long illness Saturday night. Then Ken and Kat took me to the port. What a mess and they were very behind. The ship left 2 1/2 hrs late but the main thing was we were on our way.
Yesterday it was catch up and unpack. Well I am still not unpacked but I have everything that is left over in bags. Hopefully I will be unpaced before I have to pack again.
Today we were in Cabo San Lucas and we took a tour to go see the whales. Wow did we see whales. There were 12 of us in a very nice boat. I was afraid it was going to be a dingy but it was a newer dingy! We was well over 50 whales and some were in 4-6 pods. Very exciting and I have pictures, of course.
Some of the girls, there are 4 of us hanging around together, 2 went from the whale tour to Walmart! Of course things had been forgotten. Grace and I went back to our respective rooms. I spent the time looking at my pictures. There is a picture rally where you have to enter at least 5 pictures from 5 different ports. The best of the best will be chosen and put into a CD that we will get for free. I had a pretty good picture of 2 spouts and the sun shinning on the water. We will see if it ends up in the CD but the main thing is I enjoyed taking and looking at them.
The food has been good and I have been doing pretty well. The shows are ok. The next 2 days are sea days and I am signed up to learn Mah Jongg both days. I haven't even opened a book to start reading.
I did download my pictures from my camera to my ipad and didn't have a bit of trouble. For the first time that was pretty good.
I was surprised to find the Web room with all the computers empty when I came in but it was late seating and show time so maybe I will try the same time again. The computers are slow but I am so thrilled to get to make contact. Donna thanks for posting. Tell everyone at the pool I haven't gotten in the water yet, Still a little cold.
Hugs to everyone. time for me to go back to the room and try to unpack some more before I fall asleep. love to all!
