Fishes on the wall

We sailed through Greek Islands today; not stopping – just looking as we make our way toward Piraeus.

Which meant I was going to have to find my entertainment somewhere else. Please note – this is now the start of my third week on the ship. I have been saving up various photos awaiting a really boring (I don’t do Trivia or Bingo) day on which to share them. So you are stuck.

Various ships have themes in their decoration. One can understand music themed names and prints on the Serenade. That makes sense. My deck on the Splendour (yes, I finally and consistently am remembering the “u” and to use the English spelling) has nautical themes. I like the maps – some of the fish I could do without.

For example

are interesting while the fish I think have been here in various poses since 1996 when she first set sail with no more excuse now than then.

I will skip the astrological prints, the navigational instruments and most certainly the forward section of very expensive cabins with musical themes which don’t seem to relate to the rest of the ship at all.

Now, back to yarn and tales….

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!
