Meet my friend Morgan.
It’s no secret that one of my favorite vacations is a cruise. We live so close to the Port of Galveston that we cruise as often as possible. Carnival offers a great weekend cruise for great prices. Morgan and her mom joined us when we went on a weekend cruise earlier this month. It just so happened that our cruise was during the last of the summer Olympic events. While cooling off in the pool Morgan and I had a very nice conversation about the Olympics. It seems that she was glued to the television during the whole event and can recount and discuss just about every competition. My favorite events are swimming and gymnastics. Morgan’s favorite events are the equestrian events and diving. When I learned that we both share water sports as a favorite event, I quickly amused her by stating that we were going to start a synchronized swimming team and start training on the spot for Rio in 2016. We will be called the "Carnival Cuties." She laughed out loud. But not as loudly as the other ladies in our group when I announced to them that they too were expected to be on our team.
Here's our synchronized swim team. We are a motley looking crew but we have a good time! We do need to work on holding our breath longer, not to mention we need to work on our moves! Maybe a Back Tuck? The Oyster? How about throwing in The Water Wheel?
No team is complete without a coach.....well maybe we should interview for a new coach?
He look's thrilled doesn't he? He spends his cruise vacation close to the ice cream machine. Oh and sitting by our towels, purses, chairs and floppy hats. Why didn't he put on the hat that matched his outfit? Men....geez!
