Any trip worth its salt begins with Southwest Airlines. They will get you there on-time, un-frazzled and with all your luggage. Yes I'm hoping for a free ticket. ;-)
But it is true, we landed ten minutes early in Houston today and when I went to baggage claim both my pieces of luggage were there. You know that was my greatest fear, to head out for a 41 day cruise with no clothes except those on my back.
The little shuttle van from Houston to Galveston was almost all cruise passengers. Seems I won't be alone on this little venture.
So this is where it all begins, Galveston, TX. Tomorrow this time we will be just about ready to hoist the anchor and set sail. I am at the Hilton Galveston Island. Lots of sunshine and people enjoying the water.
I got rather a kick out of this little "cautionary tale" in my room.

There would have been a time I would have stolen that sign to hang up at home...
