Day 1/2... Day 1 is really tomorrow


Tonight...
We are spending the night in a hotel near the airport in Portland so we don't have to get up at Oh My God O'Clock in the morning to get to the airport on time.
We left right after I got off work so we had dinner at the hotel. The hotel is not near anything... no stores (feel sorry for me yet?), no resturants. Hotel resturants are always an arm and a leg for dinner (well an arm), they are remodeling the resturant here though, and seating was in a converted conference room... it was, well kind of weird, especially giving what they were charging. But such are vacations.
Next:
Airport first thing in the morning
LA around noonish
Shuttle to ship at one
Set sail at 4
After boarding, our bags will be kept and searched and with doggies roaming around, then they are delivered to our cabin.
We will have a lonnngggg orientation to learn the emergency protocols and about reaching and boarding life boats (women and children first, right?) and then we can return to the cabin.
Tomorrow will mostly be spent waiting in line without our bags (and computer), so it may be late before I can start the virtual part of the vacation.
Internet access is limited to the internet cafe on board and can get spendy... I'll post daily (hopefully), but really won't be able to get out and look at what you've been up to, other than a quick glance. Unfortunatly I may not be commenting a bunch.
So tonight is the "official" start...
Here we are in the hotel, kicking back and enjoying the quiet!
See you again tomorrow night!
