Default Honey.. I'm home

HAHAHA Sorry .. I couldn't resist. What happened while I was gone. I took my own boat on a 10 day cruise. All I have to say is I wanna be back on the BIG Boat. Where's my room steward? Where's the chef? Sucks to be all of them yourself. HAHAHA

And I suppose your DH told you this was a vacation? I hope it was good, even though it lacked some of the amenities a cruise offers.

Yes he did. But then this is our usually summer trip. I've been totally spoiled from my cruise. There's only one deck on my ship. Thats just not right.

I guess we all needed to get away for a bit except we weren't on a cruise. Somehow that just sounds wrong to me.

I do aim to please...

I have a new weakness. I've always loved watching the freighters on the great lakes. Lord help me.. now I can track them to my hearts content. www.boatnerd.com I think I have a new addiction. HAHAHA I wonder if there's a similar site for tracking cruise ships. Hmmmmm

HA HA HA HA I think you've really lost it now......freighters???????
Good idea about tracking cruise ships. I'm sure glad I'm not leaving this Saturday or Sunday for the Western Caribbean or Eastern Caribbean. Looks like Chris is going to interfere. I just hope it stays the heck away from Miami........we're still recovering from last years Wilma. Just got on our new roof at the shop........26,000sq.ft. at a cost of 222m. Don't need that again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

criscomia - I've been freighter watching since I moved to Michigan. They have a deep history here and I keep a log of when I've seen the ships on my travels. At least I know I'm not alone in my love of the huge ships. Did you know you can cruise on these? YES its true. You can purchase a cruise on a great lakes freighter. *GASP* If you want the quietest cruise you've ever had in your life, then this is the cruise for you.
http://www.boatnerd.com/trips/

There are also now regular cruise ships that you can book cruises on the Great Lakes. Here's a story in case your interested.

http://www.detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll...607090310/1003

Here's a link to booking a cruise on a freighter.

Ummmm Should I end the infomercial?
