Sounds like fun, Chief. I'll be there if my company doesn't arrive early.

As one who has personally experienced Captain Gus (Andersson) personally, you can bet I'll be here. I've yet to have the pleasure of Captain Henk or Captain PJ.

Glad you're joining us, Chris. In the Fall, the usual sailaway line up will be back from Europe...I think we're on one of the first on the NA...and quite a group gathers here for the sailaways! We're all a little addicted. I hope you join in!

Thank you for the thread, Chief! Great idea.....

I am a tired puppy!!! We got a Burnese Mountain dog (yup, another mountain dog for the Kazu hill out front). He came a week ago Friday so he is now 9 weeks and three days and takes a lot of watching and 'outsides'.

So things have been a little hectic for me (not to mention semi sleep deprived).

This is also a test run of what it will be like when the MS Eurodam sails out of Port Canaveral on the last day of our cruise from Quebec City to Port Everglades.

Barring a hurricane!

That'll be 1:30 here, so I'll be around. As this will be an alien space- (water) craft, I imagine we should try to be well-behaved, no food fights or tossing around of objects, verbally or otherwise. It will take me a while to remember how I brought up two screens at once, so I'd better start trying to figure it out now.

nope, no screaming - crying for maybe 5 minutes and then quieted down. The fact that I was on the couch probably didn't hurt.
I don't know if posting a pic on a sail a way thread is permitted or not

I'm working with my netbook right now - it doesn't have the pics. My laptop is not happy today and is going in to be checked out. I'll see if I can do something from my Ipad if the Chief will permit it

I can't find her on the screen (ship, that is), and boy, does it look like a dreary day in Fort Lauderdale! Where is she parked?

Reply to my own question - don't be stupid it's Port Canaveral. I really should have learned how to read!

Of course we would love a pic of the pup. Our sail-away mascot.

There's no audio on the Port Canaveral Webcam, right?

I think there is sound but you have to turn the volume way up. I think I heard seagulls! And maybe music..
