First rattle out of the box we ran into an issue getting Lauren on the ship. Thank goodness my Boarding Letter was correct, but the ship's manifest had her as .....
|I would have claimed her as my daughter to get her on board, but her ID did not match!|
|1930 's Play Suit|
|1930's knit dress|
|Lauren - Catalina Island painting|
|Lauren gave me pointers, tips etc for painting and drawing. She had me do little projects to practice throughout the cruise. It's been ages since I have picked up a paint brush or pencil. Private lessons, Whoot!! I love the ideal of a travel journal.|
|Borrowed the picture fr Lauren's blog, but I wanted you to see what we wore when we ran around Catalina Island in a golf cart.|
|I got a kick out of this Catalina tow truck - nope we didn't need it!|
|And of course in our 1940's clothes, we felt right at home when we rounded a corner and saw a 1940ish tour bus|
Lauren would walk around the other way on Deck Seven to avoid this guy.

1915's getting ready to say something - look too serious and boring in this pic, but the outfit is nice.

|We went to Alcatraz|
|It is a beautiful place. . .|
1960's night . I found this stellar (my new word) dress in the Haight-Ashbury area in SF
Lauren's BIG Hair!! As I was doing her hair I told her you had to live through this (1960's) to know
how to do it.
The Captain wanted his picture with the "two beautiful Ladies"
I might have found a stellar dress in Haight;Ashbury, but Lauren found this Epic dress. I told her this was a one of a kind and she would kick herself later if she didn't get it! I didn't really have to twist her arm - just sorta nudge it and the dress was on the counter with the credit card in hand.

Horsing around -*groan *
|Butchart Gardens - Beautiful, Beautiful Place. Lauren did a couple of paintings, I tried - but welllll let's just say I need more practice.|
