Back To The Sea

I've been home for several months now, definitely missing the sea and salt air. I thought I would describe myself as being "land sick", but fortunately I had the presence of mind to see if there is such a malady. There is, and I don't fit the symptoms at all, so I'll just leave it that I'm missing the sea.

A short week on one of my favorites, "The Freedom of The Seas", sailing to St Thomas, St Martin, and of course with a stop on Royal Caribbean's private island Coco Cay. The Freedom will be relocating from Port Canaveral to Fort Lauderdale in November, for the winter season, and then to Barcelona, Spain for next summer. This will be my last cruise on her, well better that I say my last departing from Port Canaveral.

This morning I received my third warning notice about the Zika virus. Not too concerned about pregnancy, and really not concerned about getting sick with anything, I'll take my chances. I will pack on Saturday, and drive to the port Sunday morning.

My posts from the ship will depend on the availability of free internet. If not daily, definitely at some point, even if it is not until I return home.
