This adventure was a short 4-Day cruise departing on
September 23, 2010 on the Carnival Ecstasy going from Galveston, Texas to
Cozumel, Mexico. The group we were meeting at the ship was called the
Divas.What started as a group of six or eight women snowballed into an
estrogen filled party mob of around 140.
Wednesday, September 22, 2010 – Driving to Galveston
On Wednesday, the day before the cruise, Katie Cobb and I left
around 9:30 AM from Mansfield, arriving in Galveston around 2:30 PM to
spend the night at John's condo before our trip was to begin. John planned
to spend the night there so he could drop us off at the Carnival docs the
Katie and I arrived early enough to go for a swim in the
condo pool and the water was actually a little chilly, which surprised me since
I had asked the clerk at the desk about the water temperature, which can be
heated. He assured me that the water
was warm and didn't need the heater turned on.
At six thirty, we met some high school friends at Mario's
Italian restaurant. Joining us were Sara Lacy, Yolanda and David Sullivan,
Allen Hoffer, Carolina Cameron, Katie Cobb, and myself. Yolanda
and David bought dinner for everyone. Thanks again! Cindy Bain
was supposed to come, too, but she was having severe chewing problems, and
couldn't participate. She'll be there net time. Yes, Katie and
Allen shared two margaritas! And yes, the margaritas were as big as they
look in this picture.
