This February, instead of being on the prairie
while we got our "winter"
8 to 12 inches of snow fell at Linderhof
We were aboard the
as it sailed from Miami, Florida to Venice, Italy
(it's final cruise -- it's being "rehabbed" and will redebute as the Carnival Sunshine in mid April
Where, walking down the street, we turned the corner, and . . .
(And St. Peter's -- just days after the Pope's resignation)
The hill towns of Tuscany
(Lucca was just one)
Ending in Rome
before we flew home.
With our glee at missing winter, we weren't completely out of the woods . . .
we cleared customs and changed planes in Chicago
During their 8 to 10 inch "snow event"
We landed (on the only open runway)
And even though our flight was cancelled, as many were,
we were able to get on one of the last planes.
We arrived in Kansas City about half past midnight and were glad
that we had a hotel room waiting for us.
Today we drove home
To a very eager Dolly
who was so happy to see us
that every picture is a bit blurry!
It was a glorious month
And as much as we enjoyed our trip
It is always good to get home.
I've missed you while I was gone for internet was non-existent on the ship (it's too expensive and so we go without) and it was spotty at best in Italy.
If you've commented while we were gone and I have not commented back, I'll catch up this week
and I did appreciate your visit!
There will be more posts on Italy in the week to come.
I am joining Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
