Doesn't seem abnormal, especially because there can be some slop in the gauge readouts. If you hooked up a scantool your actual coolant temperature may be lower than indicated. Heck, even with a recent coolant flush, 180 degree thermo, and reprogrammed fans, I still get over 200 down here in Arizona.
Another thing to consider is the altitude you're driving at. When I had a fully loaded car coming through the mountains on the way from Flagstaff to Phoenix, I got quite a ways over 200 in the thin air. Just be aware of your temperature, and turn off the A/C if necessary. I know it sucks, but you do what you gotta do.
