day 105: Allison and I had a blast on our cruise but all the late nights and early mornings were starting to catch up with us so I was happy to be back on dry land. We spent most of the morning napping on the couch with Rita, but she also got to take part in her favorite activity… watching people cook. She is ever hopeful that something tasty will fall from above.
day 104: The last day of the cruise was a “fun day at sea”. We were still hoping to keep the spending to a minimum so instead of shopping, gambling, or drinking (the major activities proposed by the cruise line) we wandered around the ship and took photos.
day 103: On the third day of the cruise we landed in Ensenada. Instead of walking around we decided to take a shore excursion and ride up to Rosarito to lounge on the beach. Since we were going to be in the sand all day I didn’t bring along my camera. I took some photos back on board later in the afternoon. This one is from the deck of the ship.
day 102: First stop on our cruise was Catalina Island. Since the major selling point of a cruise for us was the all-inclusive part, we decided not to go with any shore excursions and just to roam around instead. We tried out the beach for a while but were surrounded by strange giant bees so we changed plans and explored the city a little bit. Avalon is teeny tiny and so are the houses. This small house had a very strange collection of bird houses out front. The boot reminds me of my good old Texas days. Yeehaw!
to bring you this message from carnival cruise lines : OUR WiFi IS TERRIBLE!
Allison and I are on a girly birthday cruise and had hoped to update our blogs with our laptops and wifi, but the connection is FAR too slow to upload photos if we want to do anything else at all while we’re onboard. I’ll catch up with a mega post when we get back in town Friday. Stay tuned!
day 100: Allison picked this photo to be my super-fab 100th post. We went to Disneyland for fathers’ day and while we were waiting around for said father to arrive, we took some photos of the jungle cruise shop merchandise. Want a pillow?
