Hi Kara! Your Cali trip looks so amazing! I love SF - can't wait to go back someday. It is so cool you got to be at PB for your Birthday! How special.

Sorry about the panic episode. Jim has been dealing with some things like that too - not that he's had any stress. I hope things settle down soon for ou.

If you had to say good-bye to Jordan, at least you had a nice evening as you left him behind! Miss Ally looks especially pretty in that dress with her hair pulled back, BTW.

Wow two TR in one!

LOVE LOVE the bagpiper! They just give me chills! That view of Pebble Beach is fantastic from hole 7#. Did you do the Tiger fist pump after your shot? I think you had a red shirt on!

I know what part of VA/NC you're talking about! It's right on 77 when you come in/or out of the mountains from WV isn't it? DH once drove the stretch from about Wheeling all the way down to NC at night in super dense fog. Even the semi's were only going about 40 MPH. He got about 30 feet off the bumper of a caravan of them and just followed their lights. That was all the further ahead you could see. WE figured that the truck drivers on their CB's would know about any bad spots and slow up before we could see anything.

We were all up at guess what time? "Half past bright and early!"

It was another gorgeous day waking up onboard the Magic - but then again, even a bad day on the Magic is better than a good day back home!!!!

Ally wanted a sit down breakfast so we made our way to Lumiere's for a carb overload, to get ready for our day in Mexico!

I'm not even going to bother with descriptions of that food - cause it was, well, breakfast!!! And it was yummy, and fattening, and so bad for me, that I feel guilty even talking about it any more!!!

We passed this guy on our way up on deck....

He and Ally danced a bit...

Even Goofy is ready for a FIESTA today!

We headed up on deck and look who we see!!!!

We will be docking alongside the Fantasy for yet another FIRST!!! First time two Disney ships have been docked side by side in another port!

Not sure how long the Fantasy had been there, but passengers were waiting to see us arrive - it was sooooo crowded on that dock by the time we got in and we were debarking at the same time that all 4000 Fantasy passengers decided to debark! Crazy!

We met up with Tori and Molly on deck - these three spent a LOT of time together on this cruise!!!! Wait until you see what Ally and Molly did the last two nights!!!

And Ally was so happy in that pic...... <queue suspenseful music now>

Because it was right after I took THIS photo....

That Ally came out on deck (she and her pals had left for awhile while we were waiting on clearance from port authority)..... crying.... and said.....

"I lost the wave phone!"

Jeff still swears that Ally's arm came OUT of the socket at this time. Because I grabbed her, spun her around, and DRAGGED HER back into the ship to retrace her steps.

In case you don't know, it's $250 to replace a wave phone......

Tammi and Tori already knew it was missing - apparently Ally had put it in her pocket and at some point realized it was gone. Ally went to Tammi first, because she knew what kind of reaction she's get from Mama.....

So Tammi and Tori were already retracing. Then Tori hooked up with Jeff and I and helped us look, while Ally and Tammi looked in other areas.....

We all met up at our cabin about 15 minutes later and there it was, in our fish extender!!! So THANK YOU to whoever took the time to return it!!!

After all the drama with the wave phone, we relaxed a bit, and headed into our cabin to grab our day bag and head out for our day in Cozumel.

Check out our cabin steward across the hall, yelling to his friends on the Fantasy!

It was so obvious that everyone was excited to see other DCL ships in port....

We soon discovered this was a BIG day out in port for crew members. We saw a LOT of them debarking with us.

Right in front of us was the band that we saw several times in Rockin Bar D....

Trying to upload video now but having a problem. Anyone good with Macs? I've been uploading on my pc to youtube straight from my camcorder, but I deleted all the videos because they are on the Mac. Problem is, I can't seem to upload video clips to youtube from the Mac. It will only let me upload the full iMovies, but not clips....

So if a Cast Member finds the phone and returns it to the front desk or whatnot do you still have to pay for it?

Thats awesome that someone returned it to your room though.

Whew! I'm glad the phone was returned! They should have homing devices.

Looking forward to the rest of your day!

Oh wow! I love the pics of both ships in port!

Thank goodness someone returned that phone - I lived in fear of losing mine!

If you ever do figure out a good way to upload video on your Mac, please let me know. I have been struggling forever. I get it from my phone or camera to stupid iMovie, and then I'm stuck most of the time. I would like to just bypass iMovie altogether, but I'm not sure how to do that.

Wow, that last pic is awesome!

We passed this guy on our way up on deck....
I think it's so neat on these trip reports that people can just run into the characters. I really miss that at the parks. As you know, if you run into one, they can't stop. I think I will really be looking forward to that for my son. Reminds me of when I was a kid.

I told her if she'd go and lick it I'd buy her brunch.... but she's chicken!

Mo was such an excellent server and he spent a lot of time at our table chatting with us. I was giving him a hard time about this being our captain's first voyage, and watching out the windows as we approached Key West.

I was asking Mo if our captain was really qualified, or if we were just guinea pigs? And of course the language barrier had poor Mo defending the captain (his boss!) and assuring me that we were in good hands, while I just giggled and giggled at all my own stupid jokes! So much so that Mo started giggling right along with me and grabbed my camera to take MY picture!

Once we finished our meal and waddled out of Palo, we all headed to our cabins to get changed for the day, and I wondered the whole way why oh why I didn't bring a wardrobe in the next size up..... ugh.

Up next, Freakville!!!!
Mo is great. We had him before and he took great care of us for our Palo Brunch and Dinner. One of the great things I miss about the Magic. I wish he would come over to the Fantasy.
