is a city that I really enjoy. There is an old fortress on top of the mountain. From there you can see the entire bay, the city and the ring of mountains leading to this sheltered harbor. I had been really looking forward to today, in spite of the fact that this stop is a tender port.

What I hadn’t counted on was the 15% chance of rain turned into 100%. So instead of being first in line for the tender, I am sitting in the Diamond Lounge and hoping that the weather clears. Apparently I am not the only one as they went through the first 15 tender numbers before filling even the first. I have a rain jacket. I even have an umbrella. What I don’t have is any interest in getting either my camera or myself wet, especially on a Sunday when anything worth seeing is going to be rain slicked or closed.

As you might have expected, the rain cleared about 90 minutes before the last tender was scheduled.

I thought about it seriously. Well, for all of about 30 seconds. Ride over and back? or stay in my nice comfy cabin.

Guess which won?

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!
