To say it was an amazing adventure would be a total understatement. And I have a gazillion pictures I still need to go through. I can't even explain into words the things I saw and experienced, so I won't even try. The weather was perfection (although hot -- after all, it was the Mediterranean in the summer!), and the architecture and scenery were breathtaking. I could go on for pages and pages, so let me stop now.

This was taken toward the end of the cruise, obviously. LOL!
Below is a picture of our itinerary and the ports of call, so if you want to learn about the areas, you can always Google them. . . or even check out Bonnie's blog, or even my new friend, Mavis's blog, at Dayspring Quilter. They paid for wifi connection so could blog on a regular basis.

We got along like long-lost sisters as soon as we met.

and the day following the cruise in Barcelona.
So glad we did! What a beautiful city!
When I got home, besides overcoming 4 days of jetlag and catching up on snail mail, e-mail, bills, grocery shopping, laundry, etc., during the past three weeks I have managed to finish the tops of the two projects we started working on during the days at sea. I love them both!

I was the renegade quilter and fused my appliques rather than doing them by hand.
I wanted to eventually finish the quilt. *grin*
So there you have it. The short and sweet low-down of our trip. I'll leave you with a photo of our dining room table and all my new friends, as well as a group photo.
Arrivederci for now,
