The first summer vacation I remember, I was 8 yrs old and our family went to Ogunquit Maine in a tiny cottage for a week. That was the beginning of my love affair with the sea, and I learned how to swim in the ocean!

My next vacation was 7 years later, when we went to visit my mother's sister in California. What I remember most was being car sick all along the coast highway from San Francisco to L.A., and then getting violently ill on the Teacup ride at Disneyland! I spent the rest of the day in the infirmary...

I also remember a few trips to Burlington and Plattsburgh, one for shopping, and one for the beach. I particularly remember a motel in Burlington, with a drive-in movie across the street (as Earl said earlier, drive-ins were illegal in Quebec at the time). I saw my first drive-in movie there (Planet of the Apes!)

As for cruising, never even heard of it, until the Love Boat on tv, and certainly never dreamed I'd ever be on one!
