Zoomin' Down the Highway

By the time this posts, the ship should be docking in Charleston. Hopefully an hour or two later, we’ll be getting off. Then the trip home begins.

Or rather, the trip to the football game.

Yep, we’re going to do our best to make Wayne’s game tonight (zoom-zoom). Their game is in London, OH, so if we’re lucky, the GPS won’t take us through Cincinnati. Going through there will severely slow us down. Construction! Ugh!

I’m gonna miss the warm weather. The beaches. The water. But I don’t think I’ll miss this ship so much. It’s not my favorite of all the ones we’ve been on (our dining companion feels the same way, so it’s not just me). I’d say it’s because it’s small, but we’ve been on small ships before and liked them much better.

Oh well. We wanted to try a new ship and did that. I’ll just knock it off my list of ones I want to go back to.

To answer Maria’s question from the last post… The Spa holds sales/specials on port days because most people get OFF the ship. I doubt they’d get much business if they didn’t have the sales.

The trip in to Nassau on Wednesday was nice. We rode a taxi over to Paradise Island (where Atlantis is located). Walked over to the free beach access (about a 25 min walk). When we got to the stairs that led to the beach, the bottom step had just gotten washed away in the rising tide. The people in front of us were in the process of climbing back onto the steps and one got hurt.

I was disappointed I didn’t get to walk along the beach, but it was nice to sit on the steps and watch the waves come in. I even took a little video of it, which I posted to Facebook. Once I figure out how to post it here (meaning once I get home), I’ll share it with you. Same with the few (very few) pictures I took. Trying to upload them through the ship’s wi-fi (when I have access—our account only allows one device to use it at a time) takes FOR-EV-ER!
We took the water taxi back to the port and had planned to walk to another beach, but by then I got a blister on my foot, so we just went back to the ship. Dang blisters! Kind of put a kink into my exercise routine, too. I HAD planned on exercising on the ship (they have a nice fitness room), but not with a blister.

So… While I’m flying down the highway, what are you up to? Maybe avoiding our car? Haha!

Happy Friday!

South Carolina to Ohio is quite a long haul. Hope you make it - drive safe. Avoid construction. And avoid getting pulled over for speeding. (It's all right if you speed though!)

Welcome back, and enjoy the game!

One of these days we're going to take a cruise and I'm going to write you for cruise advice!

Welcome home.

Did you make it back in time for the game?

Alex - We made it, with plenty of time to spare (good weather helped!). We're used to those long hauls and I don't mind them at all. I prefer driving to flying.

Jeff - Game was awesome!!

Maria - Better yet, tell us what cruise you're going on and we might join you! (This, from Hubby, too, not just me!).

Linda - Yep. Froze our tookus off, too. But great game!!
