The last views of New York were from our aft-facing cabin, looking backward at the harbor. These are the required photos: Statue of Liberty from the ship, the tug boat, and the absolutely gorgeous skyline on a beautiful day.
As we traveled to Boston, we unpacked, explored, and met the cabin stewards. Sweetly, they agreed to move one of the pool lounges to our deck so that I could pretend I was in my chair at home. Bob has been photographing (and making friends doing so, of course), and I have endeavored (mostly unsuccessfully to figure out the internet. Bottom line: we will leave our phones in the safe, as they are completely unusable except when in a US or Canadian city. And the Internet is iffy or not at all. So, no texts, calls, etc. Maybe we can read email via Internet, but don’t be surprised if we don’t answer.
Boston, where everything started (historically) greeted us most warmly in the persons of our daughter and her family (sans Joshua, who is in camp). Soleil crafted a lizard, whom we named Liz. Liz will travel with us, though it may get much too cold for her soon. We hadn’t meet their two cats before, and one was particularly photogenic. Greeted with flowers and FIVE pies, and love and hugs…can’t get that on any tour.
Back on board, we now know how to find food, flavors and friends. My chair is ready, the phones are off, and Canada and LOTS of sea days are coming up…..
