The dear wife and I left the Ranch in Texas on the day following Thanksgiving to travel to our Villa in Florida. First stop was the Walgreen’s Pharmacy in Gatesville, Texas to get a Rapid Antigen test for this cruise. The next 16 hours were spent driving to Pasco County Florida arriving there at 5:45 am on Saturday morning. Thankfully an uneventful but very long drive.

Smooth seas overnight. I woke early and had plenty of time to update this blog and finish packing. Diamond meet time is 7:15 am in the Chic MDR on deck 3. Some delay but we debarked about 8:15 am and went through the face-recognition procedure and was on the street waiting for the shuttle to the Parking Garage. They came by quickly and we were soon at the parking garage, I got my keys from the supervisor at the garage and we were on our way north from Miami. I had the girls safely in St. Petersburg by 2:30 pm and I was at the Villa in Pasco County by 3:30 pm. A rather smooth debark and travel day.
