Only a New Mexican would appreciate our door sign! Hmmm, between Deming and LC -- are you somewhere around Arroyo Seco? We're in LC. If you come here for shopping, maybe we could get together and discuss cruising. I'm impressed with your Jewel cruise of 33 days. And I thought our 21 dayer was awesome.
I'm not sure where Arroyo Seco is. We're at I-10's exit 102, the Akela exit where Bowlins Akela Flats tourist store is and where Apache Homelands was going to put a casino but it got nixed. Now it's just an eating place.
We don't shop much in LC but hubby's Primary Care Provider is at the V.A. Clinic in L.C. [He's a Korean War era veteran]. His PCP was at the V.A. in EL Paso for years but that got to be too much of a drive, especially for sick call, so he recently was accepted at V.A. in LC instead. Much closer but all his referral Drs are still in El Paso.
I'm excited about our 33 day cruise. We love the sea days on transatlantic cruises so had talked to TA about the ta on the Sun. Since adding the Caribbean was just a bit more we booked the ta plus Caribbean as a 19 day cruise.
Then the drydock on the Sun was cancelled and replaced by a 14 day cruise roundtrip Dover sailing to Norway, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Shetland Islands, Scotland, and Ireland. The price was great and we'd already be paying airfare to Dover anyway for the ta so we had that awesome itinerary added to our 19 day booking. I think those 14 days are now just about sold out even though it's almost six months until the cruise.
We're in the same cabin for all 33 days so don't have to move. It's a porthole on the lowest deck but so long as we have daylight in the morning we're fine. We've sailed in an inside twice and decided that we wanted at least some light. We've done a ta in a porthole before.
My email address is MaryK57 at yahoo dot com if you want to talk cruises or NM WINDY weather or anything else. It would be nifty to get together some time.
