Just me and Ree

Look at her muzzle, she's enjoying the scratch I'm giving her!

And this is fine example of why you lunge a horse before riding!

Indeed

That is TOTALLY correct sister! Why have to "fight" the "Frisk"?


Here is an example of Ree going over a log in her "play pen"... my friend and I are Natural Horsewomen... we don't believe in hitting, or forcing an animal to do anything - we believe "relationship first"...




Isn't she beautiful?

One more and I'm done... this is Bouquet - (her real name is bucket because she was bucket rasied - her mother died after giving birth - but because Barb is a fan of BBC - she calls her BOUQUET. LOL

One more question from the newbie

We are going to WDW post cruise and wanted to know if we'd be better off carting our luggage off ourselves (should only have 2 large and 2 small bags for the 4 of us, totally handleable) or if we have to have our bags go thru customs before we disembark. Not sure of how this all works as we have never cruised before. Thanks for the info, I'll await your wisdom.

Well, your bags (and you) go through customes no matter who takes them from your room. You CAN take your bags with you from your room the morning we disembark, but you'll have to schlep them with you to breakfast and find a place for them in the restaurant out of the way.

DCL will pick them up from your room the night before (you have to have them outside your door by 11PM) and you can collect them at the terminal, before going through customs. You will find tags in your stateroom the night before that will go on your luggage and let you know which section (Donald, Mickey) you stuff will be in when you get down to the terminal. It's very organized. Folks say disembarking on DCL is the most organized of any of the cruise lines.

It's pretty painless to do it that way, though that Friday at Castaway Cay and final dinner and show, it gets pretty hectic to get your luggage packed and out (especially if you want to hit Pub Night in the adult club that night ). So take some time on Thursday (sea day) to get some of your stuff packed up or at least organized. DON'T FORGET to leave out your clothes for the next morning! You will have access to your luggage to rearrange anything you like (for example, I have to put my lotions and potions into my checked bags instead of my carryon when going straight to the airport).

By the way, there is a disembarkation talk that the Cruise Director will give in one of the theaters. You don't need to attend, because it is played repeatedly on your TV on Friday and all throught the night!

If I Were Not Upon The Sea

Here's an example of why you don't want to miss Pub Night, if you can at all help it.



There are videos of this on youtube if you want to look for it...or NOT...keep it as a surprise.

Hmmm. Quotes, like: "Stop snoring," and "Wake up."

7620 (partial obstruction verandah) may now be available.

Just saw this post from Epperbiker:

Quote:
7620 may still be available for 9/12/09 Tortola
We unfortunately just gave up "Secret Verandah" room 7620 for the September 12 Magic sailing to Tortola. This is one of the four Navigators verandahs that have only a slight 'obstruction' and have a clear wall. This is virtually the same cabin as the one next door which is a cat 5. These are a terrific bargain if you book early.

Jan, you can removed Epperbiker from the role call.

We would like to bring on a few beverages. Thanks for the info.
Stretching my memory a bit, but we stayed at the Country Inn and Suites. They have a shuttle (or at least had) and as I recall, I booked it because it was cheaper than the Radisson. It was more than fine for one night.
