What better way to make my 2,000th post on this board, than to announce we're getting ready to leave for our 3 week anniversary bash to California, and eventually WDW! As many of you know, our 30th wedding anniversary is Tue., Aug. 16th. To celebrate, we are heading to San Diego tomorrow morning. The first night we have reservations at Humphrey's Half Moon Inn on Shelter Island, where we have 3rd row seats to see Cowboy Junkies in concert as part of a special dinner package.
The next day we head up the road to stay 4 nights at the Howard Johnson's of Anaheim. We will be visiting the Disneyland Resort for 4 days. On our actual anniversary, we have dinner reservations at Napa Rose Restaurant in the Grand Californian, and Fantasmic Dessert Buffet tickets for that night's performance. Wednesday evening, we are going to eat at Downtown Disney's House of Blues, and catch John Hiatt & Shawn Colvin in concert. On Thursday evening, we also have reservations for one of the new 50th anniversary Disneyland tours, that end with special viewing area for the new fireworks show.
On Saturday morning, we check out and board a bus to the San Pedro terminal, where the Disney Magic awaits, to take us and about 2000 other Disney fanatics on a 14-day repositioning cruise back to Port Canaveral, FL. The cruise includes stops at Cabo San Lucas, Acapulco, Curacao, Castaway Cay and of course traversing the Panama Canal on Sunday, Aug. 28th. If anyone is interested, here are some links to the webcams:

If that wasn't enough, we'll be getting back to Florida on Sat., Sept. 3, and driving to WDW to spend 2 nights at Old Key West, before flying back to Norfolk, VA on Labor Day. Linda is signed up for a special Precious Moments event at the Contemporary that weekend, and I'm sure we'll be attacking the Millionaire show in earnest. We could always use another cruise now, couldn't we?
Well, back to packing. Do you know how hard it is to pack enough for 3 weeks in 4 suitcases, and stay under 50 lbs each?
Whew, I'm tired just talking about it!
So, everybody hold down the fort while we're gone, and pray for those pesky hurricanes to head north!
