Greetings from the high seas! My darling and I are about to embark on our very first cruise. According to our sea-going friends, we’ve waited much too long to indulge in this wonderful way to travel and see the world. Since we’ve always enjoyed exploring new places on land, we had postponed cruising until we were “older.” I haven’t checked our birth certificates recently, but I’m pretty sure we’ve reached that milestone.
Because I’ve abandoned my keyboard for two weeks, I’m reposting a seasonal essay from last year that some of you may recall. And I’ll be back before the end of June with something new, and in plenty of time to fully enjoy the perils of summer!
