Yum! The food looks great. Next time we meet, we're sharing onion rings. I'm the only one in my family like really enjoys them so I rarely order the good restaurant ones.

More shoes? I still want to know about all of the returned items.

And very cool that you met folks going on the same cruise.

What a shame about the wine. The hotel looks great. I have made a note of Casey's in case that we do manage to do the Panama Canal cruise in September. I was amused that Walmart sold tuxedos. Graham is lucky that I did not see this when we were there. He might have ended up with one otherwise.

I am glad you had a good restful day and got everything accomplished you wanted too.
Her feet have been swelling lately with all the leg issues. All her normal shoes are tight and uncomfortable so when she found some cheap and comfy shoes, she was all over them.

I'm glad we went to the casual place otherwise we would have never met our new friends!

Looking forward to seeing the shoes.
Yeah, hopefully next time we'll come in earlier (both in the day and days before the cruise). Not sure I got any pictures of the shoes.

I told her "don't worry, it's all ladies reading my TR, they understand the concept of more shoes." I had five pairs, she brought five pair including her slippers. I think she bought four more, but at least I wore one of them one day.

She was well rested, but we keep finding that every day has it's new challenges, and there isn't too much rest, EVER!

We love onion rings, especially the really thick cut ones (that I hope we will have later in this trip) so we definitely need to share the onion ring love.

Next update, for the returns, although it's not that exciting. And not sure, but we may have met some fun new Disney friends who will enjoy visiting us in CA, if they can ever get there.

We looked into the Panama Canal cruise, but no verandah cabins are left, so maybe we'll plan it for 2016. Do they stop in Galveston? I didn't notice.

The Tux jackets and shirts were right in the men's section that faces the women's section. Perhaps it is a seasonal thing. I chuckled at how they catered to everyone, even the last minute cruiser!

OK, folks, I'm out of pictures on photobucket, so no more updates until we're back on land with a High Speed Internet connection, but it's been really fun and I hope I have some great pictures and memories to relive for you all! The Texas twist on the cruise has been a little funny too, but for the most part it has been a blast!

Glad you were able to pick up some replacement wine

Ooh your dinner looks delicious! I'm a big fan of Onion Rings too. Last night, we got Sonic and ordered some O rings, and wow! They smelled and tasted like 'Fair Food'! So delicious!

Not so much allowance, just a connection that will actually upload the photos...

There was a Sonic in the parking lot of Walmart near our hotel. We don't have them in Long Beach.

Yeah, but it will be a while before we plan that one now. I can't go two weeks without a verandah and since they're all sold out in 2014, we'll have to look at 2016, as we are planning for DLP in 2015.

Anyways, see y'all sometime tomorrow when the photos will upload in decent time!

Totes.



And no Sonic? How do you survive? You've got the Ocean and Jack in the Box. And Nicks on 2nd which we tried and it was amazing. And Johnny Rebs, rain check. And Supermex. And Trader Joe's with wine. And Legends' wings. And Disneyland!! Clearly I could go on and on.

My heart just stopped then. I am hoping for Interline rates for this cruise and if a whole category has sold out, then there is little chance of this happening. Then I realised that you probably meant just the accessible veranda cabins. Fortunately all categories are still wide open so I can breath again. The September cruise goes from Los Angeles to Galveston and stops at Cabo, Puerto Vallarta, Cartagena (Columbia) and Cozumel.

How much fun. I love DLP. I really need to go again.
