The reality of leaving on a trip.
I'm posting this a bit early in case I forget in the excitement of tomorrow.
The packing is done and this guest room is now clean and tidy again, I swear!
For the past several weeks it looked as if one of those nasty girlie-named hurricanes had come inland from our North Carolina coast and whirled all my clothes and possessions around this room.
This is one of the two duffels accompanying me to the
ends of the earth other side of the planet.
This is the heavy one where items such as Wellington boots, and warm wool clothing necessary for riding in Zodiac boats, are stashed. The second bag holds my Summer clothing for those hot sightseeing days in Tasmania and Australia after leaving the ship. This was not an easy trip to pack for I assure you!
All the bits and pieces required to protect extremities from possible sub-Antarctic cold, wind, and rain.............even though it's Summer there temperatures in the 30's expected!
Note the fingerless gloves - soft, silky cashmere no less. I decided to include these just for you............so that I can push that little button on the camera, impossible in those big old waterproof monster gloves! I hope to get lots of shots to share whilst on this exciting adventure.
I'm off today! I may be missing from Reality Shot Thursday for a few weeks, depending on Internet access on the ship.
Meanwhile, do pop over to see Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage and join in the fun. Remember, you don't even have to clean your guest room or organize your closets, just show us your real stuff!
