Back from vacation, seven days in the Caribbean.

Wireless access on the Princess Caribbean ship slow and expensive, forcing the observer to focus on other priorities like the flawless beaches and blue waters the Grand Turk, Princess Cays, St. Thomas and Puerto Rico islands. Giving in to the round-the-clock availability of food, including the five-course meals and the never-ending assortment of pastry items. Catching up on a lot of reading, six novels during the week.

Back in Louisville, happy to be home.
