Back and Blogging

We are tanned and relaxed and now we are returned to sunny California. Other than a health crisis for Ruthie while we were gone (she seems to be recovering now), it was a wonderful vacation. I can definitely recommend Disney cruises. The cabin was very nice, the crew were great, and the entertainment was top-notch. Also, Disney's private island in the Bahamas is beautiful. Nothing beats falling asleep in a gently rocking boat, with the smell of sunscreen and the blissfully silent sounds of conked-out children.

I experienced a moment of perfect bliss one afternoon. We were docked in St. Thomas, and had spent the morning ashore but returned to the ship for the afternoon. The Things were in the kids' clubs, Hubby was off doing something or other, and I was on the top deck with a book and an iced tea. The weather was perfect, warm and a little breezy, and I was watching the sailboats in the harbor. I didn't have to be anywhere or do anything for hours. Perfect.

I may post several pix over the next few days, but here are some of my favorites.
