    Woo Hoo! :cool1:

    Driving in to work this morning, coming 'round the bend on 464 and...there she was!!! The Magic in drydock here in Norfolk!!!

    ok, ok, I know she's been here a day or so, so y'all have probably been chatting it up, but I had forgotten, so I was that much more excited and surprised!!! :banana: :earseek: :earboy2:

    ...and just 11 months from now, I'll be up on the deck, waving down to the passers-by, instead of the other way around!

    Will try to take and upload pix tomorrow. What fun to see the ship today! - I'm still grinning from ear to ear!!! :cloud9:

    Look at WAVY TV10's website (www dot wavy dot com) and click on 'live tower cam 10' link to see the MAGIC.

    Cool web cam! I did the "one hour loop" and you could see something (a crane maybe?) moving along the side of the Magic -- it was pretty neat.

    Here is the loop. The camera moved away from the ship though.

    My husband saw it on his way to work too--the sight always excites us. We don't have a cruise booked right now, so we'll have to enjoy her while she's here. We'll have to remember our good times and hope we can start making plans for our next cruise soon.

    I guess we will have to take a family trip to Norfolk this weekend. I wish they would offer a cruise for passengers from Norfolk back to Orlando--that would be great!

    Wouldn't that be neat except that the ship got there in a day way too short a cruise

    You can upload you photos into a www.photobucket.com account, then you can load the photos here quite easily by "copy and paste" the photo's url address.

    PoohJen, you must be a good driver!! I tried to take a pic of the Carnival ship in the drydock last week so I could post it on Cruisecritic for some of the Carnival fans to enjoy. I came way too close to rear-ending the car in front of me and I didn't even get the ship in the picture. My hats off to you for getting a pic while driving. LOL!!! :moped: Sorry I can't help you with how to post it here.

    LOL, I think some people would argue that wielding a camera while driving does not make a good driver! Let's just say that the ONLY benefit of bumper to bumper traffic is stopping long enough to snap a pic of the Magic! :rotfl:
