June here. This is really just a test blog, to make sure I know what I am doing. I won’t have traditional internet on board the ship starting January, but I will have email. And WordPress allows you to post a blog via email. So, here goes.
The last couple of weeks have been hectic and more than a little stressful. After a wonderful visit with Linda Price in Tucson, we drove through horrible fog and rain to visit Mary and Kevin Becker, as well as Grama and Grampa Cotte, on the way to Toronto. While in Toronto, we completed our visa application for India. Despite the scary (past our departure date) date they told us to expect our passports back, we received them today in London just fine. Whew! After Toronto, we stayed in my sister’s lovely home in Niagara on the Lake, and stayed snuggled in the house during a major snowstorm. My tan from Arizona is now well and truly gone…
We just had a rowdy, lovely, wine-filled escapade with the Teevan family this past weekend, and have temporarily camped out in Matt Thomson and Allison Johnson’s house. We are true vagrants… off to my parent’s place this weekend for the rest of the holiday. We fly out to San Diego January 1, and board the boat January 5th. Very exciting feeling!
