Phyrie...LOL!!! I think the first towel animal is supposed to be a Walrus with Tusks, or a Seal, although Ben totally concurred with your sentiment, and I didn't even say what I thought you thought it was!
Kwak, those are fantastic photos. I love it when Hotels or other places we stay, do cute things with the towels or other available items in the room.
When we went to St. Moritz in Switzerland, the Maids did something cute every day with my sister's doll, "Puddin'".
Catalina is beautiful, and if there is one place in California I've always wanted to see, it is there, as well as San Francisco and Alcatraz. I would also enjoy tagging along on a Wine Tour, especially with Phyrie and Paul!
That would be fun, and hilarious and I promise Paul would be into it before the trip was over. He's a good sport....after all he tolerated me for nearly 2 weeks. ♥
The Cruise Ship is decorated in vivid colours! I'm sure you enjoyed the onboard Casino nightly. Your parents look amazing, and how lovely to celebrate their 50 years of wedded bliss with the entire family. That is a once in a lifetime trip. Your floral pictures are also beautiful.
