We are blessed! In oh so many ways...this is Maundy Thursday, and of course, we know we are blessed because we have the gift of Christ, but we are sorry we had to miss the Maundy Thursday service at home.

We are blessed by the weather gods. First of all, we just missed the big blizzard of 2013 in central Illinois. Secondly, we have had excellent weather so far on our trip. Today we had perfect weather to visit the San Diego Zoo. In case, you aren't familiar with it, the San Diego Zoo has a reputation of being one of the best zoos in the world. If you ever have the chance to visit, I highly recommend you do so.

We are also blessed by the Amazon gods. Remember the almost lost jacket incident with David. Well, he also left his camera battery charger and said batteries plugged into the outlet in the train sleeper car when we got off at the Grand Canyon. We checked with Lost & Found in Los Angeles, but no luck. So, yesterday afternoon about 2:00 we ordered a replacement on with overnight shipping and today at 9:58 a.m. it arrived at the hotel. YAY! The picture taking part of our adventure can proceed!

We have checked in with Holland America, our bags will be picked up around 9:00 tomorrow, our bodies will be picked up at 11:15, and the ship will sail at 5:00 p.m.

Bon Voyage to us!!

Happy sailing. Hope you have your sea legs ready. We have 55 on our thermometer now-heat wave! I can see little purple flowers in my flower bed. I guess that's the sign of Spring-but still a few piles of snow.
