Am just now checking this board today...we had a great time with the "guys"..Hill at the Schooner Bar and Manny at the Aquarium Bar. Alot of familiar faces onboard (crew). Juan was working in the Cafe Promenade, makeing coffee and ice cream sundaes...First day out to sea was very rough...the worst we have sailed in so far. By the time we got to Bermuda everything cleared and and the rest of the time was great weather and smooth seas. St. Marteen had a "Carnival" going on in town so all the shops were closed...so we just shopped by the dock..it was ok, since we have been to St. Marteen several times before...it just prevented me from buying any jewlery!. San Juan was a short stop 7-1...and we managed to leave 4 people behind...must be they got held up at Senor Frogs!! Not alot of kids onboard, it was a older crowd onboard. Dining was good...had a table next to the captains table...was able to talk waiter into giving me one of the captains dinner desserts...So now we are looking forward to our next cruise Nov 4th. Booked a May 2013 cruise while we were onboard...our fall 2013 trip will be to Hawaii (not a cruise).
Sounds like you guys had a good time, Karen! And even thought it is already here and gone, you still have another one very close ahead. You really know how to vacation, always have one or more waiting in the wings. That's what I do, and that's what gets me through the day-to-day stresses.

I'll bet Russ was happy that the shops in St. Maarten were closed!

We are looking forward to Ed's reunion to see everyone. I am disappointed that we were not able to arrange a mini-reunion all this while, our cruise was half a year ago!!!

On a nicer note, the beginning of the summer is here, or will be very soon, Lots to look forward to!

Ernie

Ernie!

You and Sharon booked your cruise on Liberty of the Seas. You'll need the rest after all the prep and excitement of your daughter's wedding.

Enjoy!

Thanks, Donna,

It will certainly be a different kind of cruise for us, we are so accustomed to beach-type cruises. This is really a tour of France and Italy, using the ship as a floating hotel.

We won't know a soul on the ship, and the cruise board is very, very quiet. But as you can imagine, that won't stop me from having a good time and possibly becoming "Le Maire" in France and "Il Sindaco" in Italy!

Your yard is lovely, and so is the pool - so inviting! I can't believe it's warm enough for swimming already!

Lookin' good, Ernie! I feel like I want to run (alright, maybe just walk a little faster) from your back door and dive right into the pool. hey - you should think about rigging up a zip line from the peak of your roof - now that would undoubtedly make yours the most popular pool in the neighborhood!!

Only fitting for the mayor!

Have a fun summer and enjoy your pool.

Well, I guess you can tell from my expired countdown clock, I am in Outer Banks, NC, and the weather is just beautiful! Just came back from a walk on the beach and the water is warm (okay, it is not extremely cold!).

I will have a drink for each and every EGE in your honor. I just may have one for each person who was on our last cruise!

Have a great holiday weekend, hope that Beryl doesn't affect anyone's plans. The sun is hot, it should be a great week here.

Ernie:

Where in the Outer Banks? We took a day trip as far south as Kill Devil Hills to see the Wright Bros. exhibit. I had no idea that there's only 1 bridge over the island to go back up North and I made Steve take me up to Cuttrick Light House - then yelled at him that he was going the wrong way when we left the light house!!! He said, very calmly, "Barb, there's only one bridge and it's at the southern end of this island - this is about as North as we can go." I felt bad that we had to double back, especially because we didn't get to the light house until 15 mins. after it closed!

The things we do for love.

Hi, Barb,

We are staying at a great beach house about a mile from Currituck Lighthouse. The weather has been fantastic so far, and we are getting ready to go for another marathon walk on the beach this morning, yeaterday was 4-mile walk to the "end" of the regular public access (only 4-wheel drive vehicles beyond that point - not for walking on the beach but for having access to a beach house since there are no roads past there).

Loving every minute of vacation! But that goes withou saying!

Ernie

Hey, Carl,

We had a fantastic time in the Outer Banks, very relaxing, very sunny, the ocean water was warm, the pool water was warmer, and the hot tub was, well, HOT!

The food was good, the drinks were good, the company was, well, HOT! I mean, good!

Now to work for two months, then go to Ocean City for another great week. Then work for two months and go to London for my daughter's wedding, then off to Barcelona for a cruise!

Life is good!

How are you and Kit doing? How many cruises have you been on since our last one (just to make me jealous!).

Ernie

Ernie, When are you going to Ocean City and is that NJ or MD. If it is NJ drop me a email before you go with where you are staying, and maybe we can get together for an adult beverage( I know OC is dry ) We just bought a little condo there.

You have quite the schedule there yourself!

Our only trip until 2013 is to Ed's house. NTTAWWT! We're saving for 2 trips in 2013, Ireland in late spring/early summer and of course a cruise in the fall. Fingers crossed that all works out!

Hey, Jim & Mary,

It's good to hear from you guys!

We go to Ocean City, Maryland, and it certainly is not "dry" there! It would have been nice to get together, though. Enjoy your condo, you are very fortunate to have one there! Hey, maybe next reunion will be at YOUR condo!
