On land and Online

Well, can you believe it!!! I have returned. My computer has been reformatted - fixed (sort of). I just have to find and reinstall all my software programs and try and remember what they were!!! At my age, that is tricky.
We had a wonderful, awesome, incredible cruise of the Mexican Riviera. We were spoiled, pampered and coddled every step. I wanna grow up and live on a cruise ship. Where else can you get your bed turned down every night and a chocolate on your pillow. Someone makes your bed every morning, picks up your room, delivers your breakfast, caters your lunch and dinner, entertains you every night and wants to know if there is anything else.
Our cruise set sail on the 8th in the early evening. We spent a day at sea (pool time) then sailed to Cabo San Lucas, then another day at sea, then La Paz, then Ensenada and then back to San Diego. Here are Leo and I dressed for the formal dinner. We don't dress like this any more so it was nice to get all dressed up. Retirement and formal wear just don't match.This is our cruise ship, the Carnival Elation tied up outside of Cabo San Lucas.This is the beach at Cabo San Lucas - much too crowded for me. This is the watermelon ship at the Grand Buffet at midnight on our third day out. The food was spread for miles and most was too beautiful to eat.
Our room steward was a sweet gentleman from India and he left us an itinerary, chocolates and a beautiful towel creature on our bed every night. The swan is my favorite.This is a beautiful sand sculpture on the beach in La Paz. There is the most wonderful walkway along the sea for miles here.

This is the view as we pulled into Ensenada. The weather was not the best here and the town was not the best either. I walked off the ship, took one look around and got back on and stitched the afternoon away.

I hope you have enjoyed my photos from the trip. I did a little stitching so I will post that the next time.

I have missed everyone and will look at all your blogs over the next few days and catch up on all your adventures. I am happy to be home and back online!!!

Well.. Well.. Welcome Back.
It looks like you had a great time.
I love the towels. This has got to be the way to go.
Did Leo enjoy himself too???
I think you and Leo look very nice all dress up.
I'm glad you were pampered and well looked after!!!

Sounds like you had a great trip... We had fun on ours too except for the whiteouts in Ohio and Pennsylvania and New York State on the way home.
No problem...I'll save that pattern for you...I bought a couple and I really like it.
Glad you liked the postcard..the lightbouse was great and I think I am finally recovered from the climb!
It is good to be home but the snow is a bit more than I expected. It is supposed to rain on Sunday so we all hope that it really is rain and not more snow. No matter, we'll be watching the Daytona 500 and hoping the weather is OK for Dan's drive on Monday.

When will you be back in Canada? With the current weather, Spring may not be here until around June sometime!
