cloud cover this morning –
And this is as far as I am going to go on “Ships Passing” I have decided to insert our ship name and the dates once I have some graph paper on which to figure it out.
This is just a really short note. We bailed off the ship at around 1030 this morning. I had planned on later, but it turns out to be emergency drill day. My ears really don ‘t need to hear all of the alarms.
We hiked into town – there is one pretty bit of enamel on the covers –
Unlike yesterday – all the covers are the same. The ship from across the bay
and – as a fiber person, I really appreciated the following in the bridge railing –
the symbols of the textile industry.
We finally located the tourist information center. Wifi log in was a bit challenging…. to say the least. OTOH- it is free…
(actual date at time being 6 Nov 2023 @ 1155…)
For those interested in fiber – I found a small shop in the covered arcade that had… yarn, fabric, floss and all the notions in the world.
The shop – a cash only establishment which is not at all uncommon – had a lovely woman working there. I showed her a picture of my most recent cross stitch. She figured it out and found four bolts of stitching fabric. Three were rather large Aida and the fourth was evenweave. I was trying to figure out how to communicate how much I wanted when she started to unwrap a portion and found that there was about a 1/4 of a meter already uncut. Done. I think it will workout to about 28-32 ct. Either one is fine. One small corner was smudged. The cost? 500 Yen (current exchange rate is 1$US to 167 Yen). Definitely a bargain.
It was still raining when we sailed out – which didn’t stop the farewell that we received!
