Cruising

We already did a detailed summary of the cruise for our weekly email, but here are some pictures and highlights.

Formal night, and a sunset at sea

Catalina Island:

The captain of the glass bottom boat took the picture for us, and let me touch the steering wheel...er, helm. I didn't notice that one side of my necklace had broken and all the beads slid down to the center. I wore it that way all day before I discovered it. The island is very pretty, but I won't bore you with all the pictures of cool houses and things I took. Just this one shot of the coast and the birds posing for me. Very cooperative of them.


Look! Rich is all relaxed and happy! We must be having fun!



These towel guys were way fun. They appeared in different incarnations every night, usually wearing my sunglasses. You can tell how giddy I was from so much relaxation and sleep because I was posing with them. We'll spare you the rest of that reel too...

Best thing about the cruise: Food. Nice formal dining without having to find a babysitter, ordering random stuff like roast lamb and Caprese salad. Buffets open just about any time. Desserts of all varieties.

Close second: Freedom to get up and go do anything we wanted without having to spend 1/2 hour finding everyone's shoes, pack a diaper bag, make sure everyone's used the bathroom, fixing snacks first... Spontaneity. That's what that's called. Remember that?

Ooooh... fun! I love Catalina. The towel thing confused me for a minute there, though. I'm thinking, "What on EARTH is THAT?"

Sounds heavenly! I'm really sad you didn't post the towel montage...

Oh man, you two are the luckiest people ever. I could way use a cruise right now. Actually, I'd settle for a nap at this point.

I'm glad you two could get away. It looks like you had a great time. Spontaneity...someday!
