Only one day to go, and I haven’t stopped to sit and listen to the sea, even for one moment on this cruise!
This morning I’m on my balcony in gown having a trimmed down breakfast of one boiled egg and a slice of brown toast with my coffee with Dubrovnik glistening over there in the morning sunlight. I’ll go ashore with Pam and Ken for a couple of hours later but then it’s the awful job of packing before we disembark in Trieste tomorrow. The excesses of shipboard life have finally caught up with me; I’m pounds heavier and ready to return to a more active regime.
This morning I let my boiled egg get cold while generously giving of my worldly wisdom (and time) to Heather, the South African cabin stewardess, who is leaving her boyfriend on the ship and returning permanently to Durban from Venice in a couple of days. Of course, her heart is breaking, but I convinced that her brain knows best! The boyfriend hasn’t even discussed a future together. So move on!
