We are still alive and well here on the West coast.
We just came home from a 15 day cruise through the Panama Canal on the Celebrity Infinity with friends from Walnut Creek. It was a wonderful cruise with stops in Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala, Puntarenas, Cost Rica, the Panama Canal, and Cartagena, Cloumbia. We completed the cruise in Ft Lauder dale, FL on Friday and visited the Henry Flagler Museum in West Pam Beach. On Saturday we flew back home.
I particularly like the ancient Guatemalan city of Antigua. It is up in the mountains and is UNESCO World Heritage site. That means it can be maintained but not changed. The streets are cobblestone as they have been forever.
We had perfect weather and calm seas for the entire trip.
Arriving home we hit the ground running to get all the Christmas stuff done. The outside lights are up, the tree is up and decorated, the Christmas letter is written, the packages have been mailed, but the cards remain. Those should be done in the next few days.
A very merry Christmas to all.
