When I woke up the last few mornings I was still hearing the sea, and the breeze whispering in from my window in my half-awake state was the ocean breeze.
I swear when I stand still I feel the gentle motion of the waves.
When Rob and I decided to do a Mediterranean Cruise, it was mainly because we couldn't settle on the destination. The sampler would allow a taste: Barcelona, Cannes, Liverno, Civitevvechia, Naples, Venice, Dubrovnich, Corfu.
Before, this was a list of place names. Now it is a list of places.
The world is suddenly so much bigger, yet more accessible.
The weather was amazing. Everywhere we stopped, guides mentioned this being the first rain-free day in weeks. Only one night with a storm at sea, watching lightning strike at a distance.
This is such stuff that dreams are made of; I am happy to be dreaming, still.
