1. The Golden Hour at sea…

  2. Some of you may have seen the news reports. The Carnival Magic, a cruise ship based in Galveston, Texas made the headlines when it was discovered midway through a 7 day voyage that an individual who may have been exposed to Ebola was on board. 

    Guess who else was on board, along with my wife, grand daughter, daughter, son in law, and 3 other couples, (friends of our family).

    It made for a memorable vacation. These are photos of the U.S. Coast Guard contingent that flew out into the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday to meet us for the purpose of taking blood samples from the individual back to Austin for analysis. Glad to report they were negative, else we would probably still be on the ship.  

    We watched with interest from on board,  the CNN reporting of our situation after it became known on Thursday morning.  The truth wasn’t nearly as exciting as they made it seem.  :)
