November Trip, Part One: Long Beach, CA Pre-cruise

Hit the road for most of November for a get-away to Southern Californy and a cruise to Mexico. Here's what we did pre-cruise...

 Zane BartholoMEW Slartibartfast could tell something was up.

 Zane's hiding behind the suitcase, trying to figure out how to hide inside.

 On teh road a day early to beat a predicted snew "event".

A red, sporty Camry provided the transportation for the first leg of the trip, until bad tires forced us to acquire a different ride.

 Flagstaff AZ in the distance.

 Christmas stuff is on sale at your local Cracker Barrel.

 Hoisting a brew in AZ.

 Yep. The desert is dry.

 We spent 2 nites pre-cruise on the Queen Mary, a retired ocean liner. Cool place to stay!

 Several Carnival ships berth beside the Queen.

 A very ornate art deco bar on the Queen.

 Long Beach from the Queen.


Hallway on A Deck on the Queen. The deck slants upwards as you walk towards either end. That was common on ocean liners.

 The Queen and a Carnival ship.

 Harbor in Long Beach.

 The classic lines of the olde liner.

Watching news of the terror attacks in Paris.
