A little blog about a motoryhome.
One may work hard for a living, but one does have to get outta the house now and then. When the family and I travel, we use the motoryhome. So, enjoy a few pictures from the travels. And you try to get out more!
Sit back with yer favorite brew, take off yer boots and be sure to click on the pictures to enlarge them for your enjoyment!

Carnival Magic Cruise, Sprung 2014
We last cruised on the Carnival Ecstasy in 2010, so we decided to take advantage of a good price to get on the much bigger Carnival Magic.
We loves Colorado, but sometimes I hear Galveston calling. I was happy to see that Galveston has really come back after Hurricane Ike hit a few years ago.

Sunrise nears as we drive south thru Colorady towards the Texas coast.
Capulin mountain, an extinct volcano, looms ahead in Noo Mexico.
Food 'n drank in Galveston!
The view from The Commodore By The Sea.
Peeps taking a train ride at the railroad museum.
On Saturday, the Carnival Triumph set sail. Our turn tomorrow.
Sunrise in Galveston on cruise day.
Fishin' on the jetty.
Lots of ships waiting to enter the harbor and the Houston Ship Channel.
Goodbye to our room. See 'ya after the cruise!
The Carnival Magic and RCCL's Navigator Of The Seas docked and ready for passengers.
Quickly onboard, looking down the atrium.
The fuel barge gassin' up the boat, just outside our winder.
The Galveston Strand looks good from the boat.
A quick meal.
After muster, off we go.
Cars waiting for one of the ferries.
A week ago, thousands of gallons of bunker fuel were spilled in Galveston Bay. As we left port, we passed workers cleaning up the shoreline.
For over 2 years, I've watched folks do the silly dance on the Galveston cruise cam as the Magic leaves port each week, and finally I get to watch in person. No, I didn't dance. Nope.
Gettin' into trouble at the Red Frog Pub onboard.
A new animal in the cabin each night.
Chillin' on the Tranquility deck. No children or loud music.
The cabin has a fully stocked fridge. Well, not so fully stocked after I get thru with it.
Just a little cool on the nifty (and quiet) deck 5. Over the course of the week, this deck became more popular with folks.
A serene view from deck 5.
More looniness can be found on the Lido deck.
The door to our cabin.
Rope-a-dopin' on top o' the boat.
A "palm tree" outside the Red Frog Pub.
Tenders carried folks to Belize City.
The Carnival Glory.
Carnival's redecorated Sunshine, sailing out of Noo Awlin's, alongside at Cozumel.
The Navigator arrives in Cozumel.
I really liked this shady spot near the cruise ships.
Eats 'n dranks.
Time to get back to the boat.
Modern cruise ships are floating hotels. It's really amazing to be onboard.
Yep. Free desert.
The hallways go on for miles.
Catching the sun on the final cruise day.
Getting things packed for debarkation.
Texas has the best Tex-Mex food there is.
Back to Commodore By The Sea for the day. Off to DenBRRRR tomorrow.
