FIguratively, not literally.
Today the Farmer and I are leaving on a cruise along the Baja peninsula. The ship boasts an internet cafe but I'm not sure if I'll be posting from the Pacific. We'll see.
We flying out a day early to avoid weather complications that have foiled many a traveler. We're determined not to miss the boat. Here's our itinerary so that you can follow along and make up stories about what we're experiencing.
SATUREDAY - Los Angeles, board the ship starting at 1 p.m. Sailing at 4 p.m.
We're first and foremost flatlanders, children of the midwest willing to do battle with tornados. But we are hoping to avoid
The Farmer does like to point out that we live in close proximity to the most dangerous fault in North America - the New Madrid zone.
SUNDAY - at Sea, soaking up rays. The Farmer says he intends to drink and gamble, but I know better. He will sleep in the sun.
MONDAY - Cabo san Lucas - We're going on the whale watching excursion. Read about it and watch the video HERE. I would really love to do the Zodiac version of this tour, but I'm getting a little old for that kind of action. Besides, they serve cocktails on the larger ship.
TUESDAY - Mazatlan. We'll tour Mazatlan, including the cathedral, the crazy cliff divers and those guys who hang from their ankles and spin from a pole. Yep....they do. Read more about it HERE.
WEDNESDAY - Puerto Vallarta where we'll be visiting two places that are only accessible by sea....no roads. This is our type of adventure. Read more about Yelapa & Majahuitas.
THURSDAY - Relaxing at sea.
FRIDAY - More relaxation at sea.
Los Angeles and back to Chicago and reality.
We'll be sailing on the Norwegian Star. Follow the link and take a look. If you look on the right hand side you'll see a link to the ship's live web cam. In the bottom left hand corner there appears to be a hot tub. I promise to find this hot tub and wave up at the camera. See if you can catch a glimpse of me in my tropical print bathing suit.
Promise to behave while I'm away. I don't want any reports of malicious behavior. Have fun while I'm away. If you would like you could cruise through my archives and see what I was up to this time last year. I'll miss you all terribly.
UPDATE: The Farmer and I are at Chicago's O-Hare airport waiting for our flight to L.A. Because the Farmer does alot of travel, he belongs to the Admirals Club. Believe me, this is the way to live. No sitting in uncomfortable waiting areas at the gates...... drinks, free snacks and cookies, food available for purchase, internet access, comfy chairs overlooking the runways. I could get used to this.
Well, I'm off. Behave yourselves. As Heidi mentioned, someone needs to take charge of the Monday Morning Staff Meeting. Fight it out among yourselves.
