Today is Sunday and the husband and I just came back from a long weekend with my college buddy and her family aboard Carnival Cruise Imagination. I cannot believe I am blogging about it right now, when I have yet to blog about the Caribbean cruise I took in October 2016. Anyway, better to blog when everything's really fresh on my mind still.
We flew out of Oakland on Thursday morning in the middle of inclement weather. Thankfully, all the rain only bothered road travels (flooding, sink holes, downed trees blocking roads, etc) and spared air travel. We left on time and arrived safely at Long Beach airport on time too.
Southern California has got the best winter weather I think. See this blue skies and mid 70-degree weather in February?
We got in really early and my friend and her family were driving from San Diego and have not arrived yet so we decided to cool our heels at the airport. That was where we chatted up with a docent. I did not realize that an airport has a docent, much less a small airport like Long Beach, but apparently they do host many school-age kids.
Eventually my friend arrived and we embarked on our cruise. This was a short cruise with only one port-of-call, perfect for a weekend with girlfriends. The cruise was full of many bridal parties and grooms parties. Needless to say this cruise was mostly consisted of the young crowd.
The Queen Mary calls this port home.
I have not taken many photos because I was more into nonstop yakking with my girlfriend, especially since we had so much ground to cover. Her first child happens to be my godson, so we are really close. We talked about friends, skin care, dieting, future travel plans and so on and so forth.
In between all the conversations, I have made my phone very useful.
