Bon Voyage

It's been a few years since we took our first cruise. We had a room with a window. We saw dolphins, sunsets, and lighthouses. 

We browsed artisan barns for handmade things you can't buy at Walmart. 

The WIFI reception onboard cost a fortune. We had our phones, but with poor or no reception, they were paper weights. 

We knew this going in so we both wrote several blogs and then scheduled them to post at their regular times.

At first, the lack of connectivity was an issue. I mean, someone could post what they were having for lunch and I would be oblivious. 

But after a while, we fell into the rhythm of the sea. 

And then there was the food. 

It took a while to assimilate the experience, but looking back, the time we spent on the ocean was some of the most relaxing time we've spent in years.

I'm not sure if computer AI is reading my mind or not, but I've started getting some attractive cruise packages in my email.

I'm not sure if this is something we will do in the near future, but it's something we are considering.

Maybe we could get a bunch of our blog buddies to go on a blog cruise. What would that be like? 

We might not write anything meaningful, but I bet we could enjoy a few meals.


  1. It sounds marvellous.
    I relish time away from communication devices - and water is always a benison.

  2. Its been a while, but I do love a cruise. I never learned how to time release blogs, but sounds like a good deal.

  3. PS: A blogger cruise and friends sounds good!

  4. A blogger cruise? I'm SO up for that!
    I love being our on the ocean, but just the other day, Connie-in-Dallas mentioned a Mississippi river cruise. Food for thought!

  5. Great idea! Going primitive with no electronic devices...

  6. Oh! What fun, Rick. That is a fantastic picture of you and Jilda. I am so glad you were able to enjoy the cruise. We have talked about going on one but haven't so far. xo Diana

  7. I'll go along if someone else pays. I'm afraid I don't have the funds. I promise to be quiet and on my best behavior.
