The most fashionable ladies often wear feather boas. Just sayin'.

Wow, only 2 suitcases? I think the 3 of us will likely end up with atleast 4, but we are newbies who will I am sure bring too much. Plus, just tried to book the limo I purchased on Groupon to get back home Christmas eve and they are all booked. So will be taking the BART (subway) home. Not looking forward to that with lots of bags and Christmas eve/rush hour traffic.
Here's to hoping that no one goes to work on that Monday and the trains stay empty.

We are newbies too! That's a reason for packing a lot - I don't want to run out of anything!

Hoping to finally meet my best friend's baby tonight!
I live and work where I can smell the ocean every day. I also live two blocks from the local sewer treatment plant. I definitely prefer the smell of the ocean !

Tomorrow I'm going to start packing. Lots of shirts and tops, and a few pairs of pants, plus my dress ups, swimwear, pj's. All black pants look the same, right? So no one will notice if I only bring one pair LOL!!!!. DH does our laundry, and he said he has no problem with doing it a few times on the cruise, so I can pack a few less things than I otherwise might. This is actually a short trip for us since we usually do three-week vacations, and we manage with two suitcases and a carry on, so I think we'll be just fine. Maybe.

That's my strategy, Beth. Only the top shows above the table, right?


People on 'my' Cartagena tour, I have emailed to inquire if we can pay in advance by paypal, so it won't be necessary to carry the cash. Stay tuned for the answer.

Let me clear that up for you - 100% FACT! But, I wouldn't change a thing.

I also hope you get to find out for yourself one day.

My DH handles the packing problem by throwing every piece of clothing he owns into the smallest suitcase he can find. He's been known to forget shoes, but he always has clothes.

That's exactly what made me decide that no one will notice what I have on below the table LOL!!! I looked at all of our previous cruise pictures, and hardly any of them show my nice pants and shoes. Sooo...very few pants, one pair of excursion shoes, one pair of flip flops, one pair of Crocs ballet slippers for dress up, and lots of mix and match shirts that can be layered. And, of course, my big straw hat! Everything gets rolled up and put in the suitcase (well, except the shoes and the hat), and I can iron on the ship, or treat myself and send things out to be pressed. I don't mind ironing, though...it's one of those "instant satisfaction" things!

Don't know if you got your burger "animal style", but it is the best! Anytime someone comes to visit us from out of state, In-N-Out is a must do...if not on their list, it is on ours! Enjoy your time in SoCal!

Question for those who have BTDT for the Costa Maya ruins.....

How would you dress / what would you bring for yourself and small children? I am bringing mosquito repellant wipes, sunblock, hats, etc. For clothing, I'm torn between dressing as lightly as possible to keep cool vs. covering up to protect from mosquitoes, scrapes, etc.

California liquor laws

Hi. I was planning on stopping for some Champagne and wine on Sunday before hopping on the boat. What are the California liquor laws? Do they sell alcohol on Sunday? I may have to run out of the hotel Saturday night. Thanks. Sherry
