We sailed into port promptly at 1500. The Legend had been motoring along at a rapid pace all morning.  Ignoring the darkness, thunderclouds and lightening storms I spent the morning happily in the lounge working on one of the cross stitches which I brought along. Given that it was over 30*C outside and quite humid I actually enjoyed the experience of the air conditioning.

I looked out at the city. Modern high rise glass buildings not that far away. Narrow streets closer to the port teeming with people.

I spent a quiet evening on ship finishing the second of the Carola Dunn – Daisy Dalrymple audio book mysteries (UK, 1920s) that I borrowed from Hoopla.

The ship actually doesn’t seem all that crowded considering. There were still lounge chairs available in the Solarium at 1000 in the morning. The DL had seats open just about all day.

and there were treats delivered…


not that I like strawberries or anything…

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!
