In the days before we left the weather had been bitterly cold, at least for us. Ice on bridges and roads had shut down school, work, and normal activities. I was thinking, we are SO outta here! Just please, let me get a pedicure first...
Me and Lou Ellen...I love my sister. And Don & I love going on cruises with Lou Ellen and Charles. We (the four of us) are the funnest people I know. No brag, just fact. ;)
When you leave on a cruise, Sail Away is a big deal. In old movies people stand on the dock and wave and shout and wish you bon voyage. Bands play, streamers fly. That's not the way it is anymore. There are people standing on the dock, but not that many wave. Mostly they are just watching, and I bet they're wishing they could go too.
One of the things you have to do is be out on the deck for Sail Away. It means you...yes you, are on vacation. Whoo-hoo!!
I had read about finding the "secret door" (on Conquest-class ships) to go on the front deck for our departure. It's actually not so secret, but they don't go out of their way to tell you where it is. We did find it, and the view was beautiful!!
Don and Charles, partners in crime...aka the Brothers-In-Law!!!
