Thanks Jo.
We did so enjoy the train ride and the weather did turn very nice for the rest of the time on the train .
I am currently sitting in the Fairmont waterfront hotel waiting to board the ship. We are right across the driveway from the Canada Place cruise ship terminal so all we do is walk across to get in line to board the ship.
The weather today in Vancouver couldn't be more perfect and I hope it stays this way for the rest of the time that we are in Alaska.
Everyone have a great weekend and I'll try to check in sometime from the ship.

Ann, nice weather to start off a cruise with. Hope it stays that way. We're having great weather this weekend. And we are going to the University's football game across the street tonight and there will be a fireworks show at halftime. Heard from our best friends who live in Florida and they made out well. They are coming around down there. Lots of help.

Hi all!

I posted after Ann's first post from her trip & the message went poof! I've just come back from a couple of nights at my sister's cottage where she held our annual sibs' day. Always nice to see my 2 brothers & little sister.

Bob ~ glad to hear the surgery went well. Too bad about the infection, hope all goes well so you don't have to cancel the cruise.

Ann ~ sorry you didn't get nice weather for Lake Louise. It sure is a lovely area of Canada. It's amazing at the glacier to see how far it's receded over the years. Have fun on the train & in Vancouver.

Grandpaul ~ we're getting summer weather now, you too? Nice to see NCL helping out the people of St Thomas eh?

Have a nice weekend.

~ Jo ~
Thanks Joe.....

Well, our university's football team won tonight and there was a very nice fireworks display at halftime. Only thing a bit unusual was there was a young teenage girl sitting a couple rows in front of us that was the exact duplicate of one of our twin Granddaughters on Long Island. I figured it might look a little strange if I took her picture so I didn't.

Perfect weather here today and I had a very restful day. I'm going to need it with a 5 day work week coming up this week. But I'm sort of looking forward to it. Good to be busy sometimes. Marylou did her soup kitchen again today. Over 100 people there. She said she feels like when the 4 sons were growing up in our house.

NCL just posted a message about our upcoming December cruise. It sid in 2 weeks they will determine if there are any changes to our cruise. As I said on the thread for this cruise, I don't care where we sail as long as we get on the ocean. Down to 85 days. I assume the storms will be over by then. LOL. Back to work tonight for the 2nd day of 5 this week. Very nice time last night. Met some very nice families of patients they were waiting for. Some people are still nice. And the Red Sox won again last night. Game ended around midnight. So did I.

How is Holli doing Bob?

Keeping my fingers crossed that changes to your cruise, if any, will be minimal.....
