Blue Line again

I didn’t remember that I had been to this port just last year until after Miriam and I were off ship, through all the tour hawkers and across the street. There is was – the sign for the “Linea Azul” – Blue line that I clearly remembered from last year (6 Feb 2023). So we just took a walk, mostly attempting to stay in the shade. Yes, this was reasonably early after we had docked, but it was already starting to feel warm.

Falling the line, we made the central square which is starting to get ready for Carnival –

from there we walked toward the water and Liverpool Street –

where I present you with the “Beatles” but will spare you the Yellow Submarine and closeups of the English standard phone booths…   I will also skip pictures of court buildings, other government buildings and like structures.  We did a gradual wander back toward the ship, avoiding stores, souvenir shops and more tour operators. There was also a smaller ship in port today, but I never figured out which line it belonged to. It certainly wasn’t listed on any of the standard look-up tables.

Any way – we came back to the ship fairly early and relaxed for most of the day. I finished the tail on the Beaver and that is as far as I can go with the floss colors I have on hand and moved on to knitting for a while.

The sunset was spectacular –

just as we were leaving the pier. Tomorrow is another port day – then two sea days on our way back to LA. I will save the craft pictures for then.

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!
