My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Cruisin w/out Cricket

We have enjoyed four cruises now and I have left my guides home. (This is just my personal preference, however, maybe I should change the name of my blog!) It is an adjustment to going from guide dog to sighted guide and cane user. Speaking of personal preferences - I know some great cane users and I'm not one of them! A guide dog then sighted guide is my preference ... sometimes the fam forgets (mom is blind) when they are used to Cricket just kind of doing her thing! It is the family joke - who's got mom.
I like cruises for the fun shows, such a variety of food, and even yoga class on this ship! I never did orient myself enough on this ship to walk around on my own ... but that's not fun anyway! I always had someone fabulous to hang on to!

Wow such pretty photos! I can't really get the details, but I can see beautiful blue sky... Now I'm
jealous; with I could go to Hawaii...

I went on a Mexican cruise last December without Coral. Maybe it is a good thing to give her vacation since she's so picky about where to do her "business!"

I'm missing the other cruise - Disney, Disney, Greece and Hawaii - where else did you leave me to? hehe

I love Cricker, but I think its better without!
