Day XII

6 comments:
Since we are on a sea day it's time to have a bit of different food. While checking out what's offered on the Carnival Spirit I found this Italian place. Anyone that knows me knows that I'm addicted to pasta. I'd rather have pasta than chocolate.

So I think a trip here for lunch would be a fabulous idea, maybe even dinner. Life is good. WYWH!

Day XI

8 comments:
We are now heading back to the mainland which means we have four seas days to get to Encenada, Mexico. I'm sure after all the running around we have done for the last five days it will be nice to kick back and rest for a day or two. I'm also thinking it's time for another visit at the steakhouse. Yes, I'm sure of it. Life is good. WYWH!

Day VIII

10 comments:
Today we are in Honolulu, Hawaii. We will tour Pearl Harbor and the USS Missouri. I've always wanted to visit both of these places as they are full circle to me. One is at the very beginning of a horrible war and the other is the ending of that horrible war. There will be tears. Life if good. WYWH!

Day VII

12 comments:
Today we are in Maui and that means it's Luau time. The last time I was in Hawaii I couldn't afford to go to a Luau, but since hubby has never been to Hawaii, we can share this wonderful experience together for the very first time. I'm even going to try poi. I'll let you know how that works out. Life is good. WYWH!

Day VI

10 comments:
This morning we find ourselves in Hilo Hawaii. We decided to book the excursion to Volcano National Park because the Hawaiian Islands were all formed by volcanos. We find this fasinating and am sure that we'll have a great time. We'll then explore the bay. Life is good. WYWH!

Day V

12 comments:
This is our last sea day and it's also the night we are going to the steakhouse for dinner. This is a must do for us. We had a fabulous meal on the Carnival Glory last February with Sarge Charlie, Empress Bee, Dick and Sandy, Barb and Linda. I had a Filet Mignon that you could cut with a fork. Absolutely divine.

Day IV

8 comments:
This is our third sea day and I'm sure we are having a blast. Our personal vacation planner Edward Garcia (Miami, Florida) said he ordered up some great weather for us and as he takes such good care of us I'm sure we are having fabulous weather. Anyway, one more sea day after today and then it's the Hawaiian Islands and lots of fun things to do.

Day III

6 comments:
Sometime today we reach the halfway mark to Hilo, Hawaii. I'm not sure how we are doing on all the sea days, but I'll let you know when we return.

I'm also sure by now that we've found a few staff members that we like and are making sure that we see them everyday. The staff on Carnival are fantastic. They bend over backwards to make sure that everything is just right. One more sea day after today and then we can see the Hawaiian Islands. I'm so ready for that. Life is good. WYWH!

Happy Birthday Mike

5 comments:
Mike of Rambling Stuff aka: Golch Central is having a birthday today. Although I'm on a cruise ship headed to Hawaii, I didn't want to forget Mike's birthday.

So grab some cake and make sure you swing by and wish him a happy birthday. Have a great birthday my friend.

Day II

10 comments:
Today is the first day of four sea days. Did you know that the Hawaiian Islands are about 2000 miles from the mainland of the United States. I didn't know that either until I looked it up. Today you'll find us exploring the ship and perhaps some reading. The next four days are all about resting and enjoying a slow pace. We might catch a show or two, and since the piano bar is now non smoking we just may check that out. Want to come along Barb? We'll buy you a nice glass of red wine. Life is good. WYWH!

Day I

13 comments:
This morning we are having our coffee, and then showering and getting our Honda to the Park and Fly lot and then catch the shuttle to the Carnival Spirit. We sail at 4 this afternoon and you'll find us on our private balcony having champagne as we head to sea. I remember how I felt on the Carnival Glory when we left port. I'm sure I'll feel the exact same way. Excited about our cruise on the best cruise line out there. Life if good. WYWH!

San Diego

22 comments:
We are off to San Diego this morning and it will take about 9 to 10 hours depending on how many stops we make. This begins our trek toward the Carnival Spirit and our trip across the Pacific Ocean to the Hawaiian Islands. We will spend tonight on the San Diego bay having some champagne on our patio. Life is good. WYWH!

One More Day!

24 comments:
Today is a busy day with last minute packing and of course I have to get a fill and a pedicure. I won't be allowed on the ship if my feet and toes aren't just perfect. That's a rule you know. So today is the last day before we leave for San Diego. We are so excited. I don't think Little Bit thinks too much about us leaving her. She's in good hands though.

Busy Week

19 comments:
Lots of loose ends to tie up in the next two days. Errands that need doing, cleaning, laundry and all those things you do when someone is coming over to house sit. You can't leave them with a mess, so we won't. Today I get my hair done and then do a few errands. Hubby is doing some of this secretarial duties for his club and then we'll check our list twice to make sure everything is done. I've been excited about this cruise for a very long time, but finally hubby is excited. He's ready to go. He loves sea days and so do I and quite frankly we are looking forward to taking it easy on the sea days.

Not Good

24 comments:
Now this is something I really didn't want to see since we are sailing on the Carnival Spirit this Friday to Hawaii. Nope this is not something I wanted to see.

My first thought was I think Sarge Charlie, Empress Bee and The Traveling Bells have been on this ship. At least on one of the ships in the Costa Cruise Lines.

What Do You Make?

25 comments:
The dinner guests (which included a doctor, a lawyer, an engineer and a teacher) were sitting around the table discussing life. One man, a CEO, decided to address the importance of financial success and choosing a career that assured it. To stress his point he unabashedly said to another guest; "You're a teacher, Bonnie. Be honest. What do you make?"

The Pearly Gates

19 comments:
A Muslim dies and finds himself before the Pearly Gates. He is very excited, as all his life he has longed to meet the Prophet Mohammed. Having arrived at the Gates of Heaven, he meets a man with a beard.

"Are you Mohammed?" he asks.

"No, my son. I am Peter. Mohammed is higher up." And he points to a ladder that rises into the clouds.

Dear Leader

26 comments:
I am really concerned about North Korea's appointment of the "dear leader", Kim Jung Ill's youngest son to be the new leader of North Korea -- a nuclear power! After all, Kim Jung Un (pronounced Kim's young-un?) had NO military experience whatsoever before daddy made him a four-star general in the military.

This and That

25 comments:
Hubby and I are both in vacation mode and the list is getting shorter and shorter on things left to do. We've got all our clothes lined out for the trip as well as paid for everything except what we do on the ship and during our excursions. I'm getting pretty close to getting the suitcases down and start packing.

I said, "Yes, it's all under control. It's been a very busy day, I haven't stopped."

Smart Mouthed

A student got into trouble at school when his teacher was teaching a math class and he fell asleep.

When the teacher proceeded to ask him a question he snapped awake and the teacher took a ruler and pointed it at the boy while saying, "At the end of this ruler is an idiot."

The student got into trouble because he replied back, "And which end might you be referring to?"

Happy New Year

33 comments:

We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched.

Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman
