excited that you are able to book in 2 weeks....because that means my 90 days will be here soon....
I just sent Sue a text today, we have enough OBC and my disney rewards to pay for our excursions.... so at least I feel like that is "free"
we are getting close..... but I'm not that excited yet...

We have tried an intro dive and I had trouble clearing my ears, too. We do a lot of snorkeling though. Haven't tried snuba or helmet diving yet. John and I just got back from Kona yesterday. So far that's been my favorite place for snorkeling. We go right off Kahalu'u Beach and there are lots of fish and turtles there. We also go out with Jack's Dive Locker for snorkeling. We had friends join us this year and went on a Dolphin Watch with Jack's too. We were the only 4 on the boat with 2 crew members and had a wonderful time--just about close enough to touch a dolphin!!

I've only ever watched them on tv. DH and I went to Sydney years ago for a Robbie Williams concert and it was our first real visit there. We were surprised at how dirty the Opera House's sails were. They were more grey than white.

Snuba sounds interesting.

I went through all the classes and up to and including the pool dive. the only thing I did not do was the open water. But that was many years ago. I now have a permanent 'squeal' in my right ear. We also love snorkeling. We've gone to Turtle Bay in St Thomas and loved it, but I think my favorite was the wreck in Aruba. the water was an amazing blue, so many fish and such vibrant colors. And of course, we have snorkeled in Castaway Cay and 'found' all sorts of treasures there!

They don't really get that close to you....especially if you are on the surface looking down. I pretty much stay on the surface.

Well this move didn't start off too good. Got to North Carolina and was in a 4 car crash. Car might be totaled. I am ok, and the cats are ok. I am just shaken up. And because I was the last car in the 4 car chain I was deemed one of the at fault drivers, doesn't matter that the first is the one who slammed on his brakes ad caused the pile up. he walked away with little damage and no ticket.

Had to get a rental car and checked into a hotel. I was too shaken up to drive. We plan to continue at 12 midnight, I want to be on the road with the least amount of traffic. Still a little gun shy. It could have been a lot worse. All my body parts are in tact and working, can't ask for anything more.

Could use some pixie dust for our drive tonight.

So glad that you are ok....your right, at least your good and the car can be replaced. Just take it easy for these few hours. You will be fine once you are back on the road. Here is some for the rest of your trip.

Thanks for the well wishes. I couldn't sleep so we are heading out at 9. We need to bd at the house by 11 because I have critical work to do that I need very good Internet access for. Just going to take our time. The hotel gave me some time to de- stress.
