Yesterday I meant to type the Port by Orlando which is Port Canaveral,which is near Orlando. Well that is the airport I flew in and out of, or at least tried too. Well I also just realized that tomorrow is Sept 11. WOW I cant believe it. I am sad.
I'm baaaack!!! Sorry for the lack of update but my 7 night cruise lasted 11 nights. Due to Hurricane Francis we couldnt dock at the port in Orlando, so we had to stay out at sea. We did have wonderful weather, it didn't even rain once. When we docked for a few hours in Texas to refuel we started heading back to Florida. Well the seas were just wild. My son and I were GREEN!!! Thank go it didnt last long though. We ended up having to dock at another port. We did have a wonderful time! I tell you I still have sea legs. It felt good to be on land!! So Was I missed??? Well here is the long awaited update.
Ok we wonone and lost one while I was away. But we are still in frist place(by a hair)
