Home Again

So did you think I'd fallen off the edge of the earth?  I've been here,

spending 7 days cruising the Mexican Riviera on this wonderful ship.  The cruise was wonderful, after the first 2 days, and until the day before we returned.  We sailed from San Diego, which I understand is a sunny, southern California city.  You couldn't prove it by me.  It was cold, damp and dreary when we arrived on Friday, and even worse the next day when we boarded our ship.  We sailed on Saturday (cold) and had 2 days at sea (cold) before arriving in Mazatlan.  It was nice to finally get to some warmth.  From then, everything was so nice until our last day at sea.  Again, it was cold and the sea was rough.  After breakfast I spotted flying fish and had a great time watching for them.  I didn't realize until almost too late that I was getting seasick.  (shouldn't watch the water when the seas are rough!)  Fortunately, they keep plenty of seasick medicine onboard, and I was fine in no time.

Glad that you found the sunshine. Sorry about the So CA weather. It has been positively weird weather all summer and fall. This is normally our warmest, driest season. Trust me, we are all tired of it too!!!!
