It’s Still March

It is still March here and absolutely anything goes as far as the weather.  It has been a wonderful March so far and it is really looking as if it will go out fairly warm.  🙂 We’ve been having the April showers (that we normally get in May) so with luck, we will have some… Continue reading It’s Still March

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 6

It was calm and clear this morning, but still quite cool.  Karen got up and came up, but didn’t even stay long enough for breakfast before she was back in the cabin again. For a short time before lunch it warmed up enough that I could take my sweater off while in a sheltered spot… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 6

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 5

It was pretty calm this morning, but still cloudy and cold.  Karen finally got up for breakfast and for the first time in a few days, we had a full table for breakfast. It didn’t stay that way for long and we were missing Karen and the Dutch guy for both lunch and supper. It… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 5

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 4

We slept ok last night, but the ship was still rocking this morning.  Karen refused to get out of bed.  I had to get outside and get fresh air, so I left her and went up.  It was actually ok for sleeping in the dark with the boat rocking, but I simply couldn’t spend the… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 4

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 3

The whole day today was cool and cloudy and the ship never stopped rocking.  Most people on board were feeling very queasy. I found that if I stayed outside or was walking inside, I didn’t feel too bad.  If I sat down inside, I soon felt sick again, but I could sit down outside and… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 3

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 2

We woke up fully recovered this morning and were promptly kick out of our room by the steward who wanted to make our beds.  There will obviously be no lying around in bed in the morning on this ship. We spent most of the day in port at Tilbury.  We thought about going ashore, but… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 2

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 1

This morning after breakfast we got everything all packed up and then checked out at 11:00 am.  We hung around the lobby with all our stuff until 12:30 and then called a taxi to take us to the docks. We boarded the ship with amazingly little trouble, although they lost Angel for awhile. They did… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 1

Spring on the Red River – March 24

Actually, I’ve been taking pictures the last 3 days, so we can see together the changes (if any) along the Red River.   When I started putting this together, I haven’t even looked at the pictures to see if the river is rising or not.  I don’t expect it will be anywhere close to flooding this… Continue reading Spring on the Red River – March 24

European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 6

This morning at breakfast, our waiter slipped us each an extra piece of raisin toast because we both got excited when we saw it.  🙂   I don’t know what else we had for breakfast though. Today is our last day here and even though it is cloudy, we decided we’d better go to the Euro… Continue reading European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 6

European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 5

This is the longest we have stayed in any one place since we arrived in Europe.  Its too bad that Karen and I hadn’t arranged to keep the car for a bit longer so we could have explored more – but its not long now until our ship leaves and I guess we’ll be on… Continue reading European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 5
