Tuesday 8/16/2011

I missed writing on this blog yesterday cause' I was getting caught up with SO many different things that it just totally escaped my mind to do an update. I apologize to my poor, neglected blog, I promise to do it again in the near future, lol.

So, today's doings: book the trip! Going to San Diego this afternoon, arrive early evening, stay at a Motel 6 for the night, get up early and get on a boat at 5:30 am. Went to Walmart for some white T shirts - I only had one and it was stained. I like wearing white T shirts on such trips. A new pair of sunglasses, a new pair of shoes - old ones literally had holes in the bottom; hair cut; fill up the gas tank.

I was only able to get a day trip. I wanted to do an overnight by they cancelled due to lack of people signing up. The day trip is allegedly a definite go - well they already have enough people signed up to make it a go. It's 12 hours on the ocean, half of it will be fishing, the rest is getting there and back. I haven't been on a boat since I was in my early 20's and I have NEVER been out on the open sea. Got some motion sickness pills just in case - but - I have never gotten motion sickness in my entire life except once in a car when I was a kid and I was already very ill with something else. Riding in the car made it worse.

Take it back. There WAS an airplane ride I took once that REALLY got to me. I don't even know why. Normally, I can ride in a small, medium or large aircraft and not even start to feel anything. But that time? Terrible!! I don't know how Caleb handles such, either, guess both of us are going to find out!!

In finding a map to get there? The easiest part. Interstate 8 literally ends like a mile away from this place! lol

Do we have any idea what we are getting ourselves into? Likely not. I can only say that I am taking my camera and the rest is sails to the wind! Will it be fun? It should be, unless the boat sinks 40 miles off coast and we are floating around the water in life jackets as so much shark bait..............

I dunno, but I'm excited. Taking my camera, they say you can take a bag on board so a change of clothes in case "something" happens and an extra pair of shoes, sunscreen white tee shirts with shorts and tennis shoes, I think that's enough.

I would definitely love to catch a fishie or two, but to be honest, just being on the water, out in the deep blue sea is a treat enough in itself.

I have little precious time left to get things ready, so, g'day and until next time!

Well I put up a post yesterday concerning the second part of the trip but it ended up in another blogger account I have - and haven't us...
