Barcelona, in the rain

We docked @ A Terminal in Barcelona in line behind Celebritie’s Equinox and Reflection;

Three in a row

Three in a row

the pair looking like two identical peas balanced next to the pier on keels complete with a rear fan reminiscent of a duck. Never mind. The build of Celebrities “S” Class ship just looks weird to my eyes.

Where was I? Oh, yes rain. Which was why I had my rain jacket but left the umbrella on ship. I believed the lies about the weather clearing up.

It didn’t.

I wandered around, took a few photos and otherwise just looked around. Walked streets and alleys of the old city. Even visited “All You Knit is Love” and didn’t buy anything. Can’t quite say the same about my stop through Desigual.

18k steps and I headed back to the ship more than a little bit wet..

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!
