Dancing in the Street

I was quietly sitting in my cabin when the rhythmic thumping outside my window started. Yes, outside my window which faces out onto the Promenade.  What appeared? Apparently the (trademark, trademark) Move It! Parade. (I had to look in the Cruise Compass for the information). I recognized a Panda, a Shrek and a Lion in and among the other fanciful characters bouncing, dancing, jousting and other wise entertaining the children and adults who lined the parade route.

And me with my literal bird’s eye view from my perch on Deck 7.

I’m not sure that the parents and grandparents weren’t having more fun than the older children who were perfecting bored facial expressions…..

We dock tomorrow in Fort Lauderdale.

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!

    Great fun, and a great antidote to today’s event in DC.

      To tell you the truth – I was purposefully blocking that particular parade completely out of my mind

    Oh yes. The best kind!
