Radiance OTS – final day/sea day

This cruise is extremely short for me. Seven days – one of which was the boarding day – three ports and three sea days. The cruise companies may be mercenary, but even they are stupid enough to attempt to count the final docking day as a “cruise day.” Especially since one usually has to be off the ship by NTL 0900 in most cases.

So today is a sea day. I normally skip having my cabin attendant come in this last day so that I can just relax and pack whoever I really want. Which takes all of five minutes if I am being slow. Packing today is because I am changing cabins (two different bookings mad at two different times. There are a serious number of us staying on for the next cruise). I am going to be taking a short walk in Vancouver (actually Granville Island where Canada Place is located?) before re-boarding around 1100. At least that is the plan.

Back to today –

which is the route being taken back to Vancouver.

It was also “grab CME morning” followed by Zooming with Shelia followed by Pam’s Fancy Folks Zoom. The wifi – given the ship’s location and the new StarLink actually held up pretty much the whole time.

The sunset was lovely –

the moon was even more lovely on the water

and here is where I finished for the day

second rose to go – then it will be on to the tea cup’s handle and finally the sheep.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
