To Venice we go!

Add travel agent to the long list of talents for My Man. He assisted the Dyers in planning their epic European vacation, and they were wanting us to join them. And so we did, mid-vacation.

Unbeknownst to them, 8 months ago MM and I made the decision to not just join them, but to surprise them onboard their cruise out of Venice. Yes, it was a good surprise. Whew! We were happily greeted with shouts of joy, not "oh, nooo!"

We sailed out of Venice yesterday, and today visited both the (beautiful) Church of St. Nicholas and the (somewhat plain) Catholic Cathedral here in Bari. This is a new port for us. Internet is a bit slow, so I will not be able to post a lot of photos. Bugger. Later on those.

The weather is perfect, but it's gonna be Hawt in Greece, where we will be tomorrow. Since we are in a different port each day, passengers are constantly getting on/off the ship, which means daily muster drills with the noisy whistles that precede the meeting...blasts that just woke up MM! Yes, we are still a bit jet lagged. He managed to go back to sleep.

Hey, we are on a cruise...and with the kids. Life is good! Ciao, y'all!
