At last count we've got over 1100 pictures of our adventure. It was obviously the AT&T "global" connection that failed us and not the computer. However, as you will learn (if you are interested) that was only the beginning of things gone awry. But we had an unforgettable time and would go back next month if we could.

My Dad e-mailed me and let me know that their AT&T card is not working like they were anticipating, so they will have to blog it all after they return. He passed on the following message that i thought i would share with anyone that follows my dad's life (which is much more interesting than most of ours... well maybe not... anyway)
"We are, however having a wonderful time. Thanksgiving in the Chilean Fjords. Cloudy, but beautiful. Tomorrow cruising through the Straight of Magellan. Monday cruising around Cape Horn. "
They are having the time of their lives but i'm sure they are in no hurry to return to the real world!
I hope you all aren't terribly disappointed. i think we all figured they would be to busy to update us anyway!
Hope all is well! Happy Holidays

Well, that's the test for now. Time to see what it looks like posted. If we like this, that will probably be all until we start.

Anyway, we've got the AT&T global Internet card and, according to the coverage map, we should get coverage everywhere we are going on this adventure. As long as we are within 3 miles of shore we are supposed to be connected. So we will have to be in or near port in order to get a new post out. Not much time. That's why we're playing with this so soon.
With 10 days left we are both very excited, like 2 kindergartners looking forward to our first trip to Disneyland. We can't wait and time seems to be stretching, taking forever. Even though we will be leaving behind all of our creature comforts like our own beds and our super comfy chairs !.....
We know we will have something to look forward to when we get back. (Okay, got the chairs in there FINALLY. Maybe we can do this.) We are leaving not only our cares behind but also our loved ones. Our youngest family member, Timothy will be in the capable hands of his loving older brother Sean who has promised to put on a mean face and make loud noises in case of trouble while we're away.
So you can see why we're confident that we can just relax, and enjoy each other and anything that comes along on our trip. Webster's definition #3 of honeymoon is "A period of unusual harmony following the establishment of a new relationship" Even though we are working on a relationship of over 5 years, we are anticipating stretching out this "unusual harmony" throughout this trip - come what may!
