Even after a wonderful vacation, NOTHING beats seeing the beautiful lights of San Antonio on your final approach into the airport.

We ARE blessed to live in such a beautiful place! The temps yesterday and today according to the SAWX rival those in the Caribbean for the last 10 days! we are SO lucky to live here!

We did have a great time, thanks Russ!

All unpacked, last of the wash in the dryer...trying to get the picture CD from Walgreens (taking longer than normal) and already did the HEB Plus run....life is good.

I was SHOCKED that Which Wich doesn't look any closer to being done than when we left!!! We were certain it would be open by the time we got back...I think only HALF of the snails that built Burger King are working on this one!!!!

nah, those Burger King snails were VERY slow. I think you've forgotten just how slow they were. It took at least 15 years to build it

So you went on a cruise? We went on one in February 2006 out of Galveston and are going on one in September of this year to Alaska. Can't wait for that one. The weather in Alaska will be much more appealing to me..

Wow...Alaska is at the TOP of our list for a cruise soon...but we do enjoy the Feb warmer water and sun cruises with friends. We meet up with a group of 3/4 other couples who live in NY and PA and NEED to get out of the snow/cold in Feb...but Alaska is something we are REALLY wanting to schedule soon. Once you have done Alaska, don't forget to do the Panama Canal, it was AMAZING!!!

No, but the last time I got to get off the boat I was on (a sub) and get on a little boat to ride to Rodman. That was pretty interesting, especially the instant sunburn we all got after being under water for 33 days straight.

I'm sure the cruise ship would be a lot more fun, although we did usually have a BBQ or something special while going through. Did you park in the lake for a while? That's wild seeing giant ships in a lake..

Sure did...and you are right, it IS odd. When we went to turn to go back out the locks (partial transit only into Lake Gatan, it was almost like shifting sands the way the huge ships would turn at the same time to make room...reminded me of the inside of a watch and how it all moves dependent on the next piece. We REALLY enjoyed as another ship was next to us ahead one lock...so we got to see them go up as we went down and vica versa as they drained/filled each one.

I LOVED the part where we were getting ready to enter (cruise ships have the right of way over all others because the Panama Gov charges per PERSON aboard the ship as well as weight (how smart!)...so all the tankers,cargo,others moved to the side so we could pass....looked like the parting of the sea by Moses!
