Three days back, now

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.

I'm so glad you had a great time. Did Alex enjoy himself too?
