We made it home from London yesterday evening after battling thousands
at Heathrow, then Charlotte, and even here in Raleigh! Airports are just getting so
difficult, tiresome, and getting through them in those ever lengthening lines is like
fighting a battle. Seems everyone has TSA Pre Check now! We do have
Global Entry which gets us through Immigration faster - however as usual I was
called aside because of my fingerprint problem - I don't have any clear ones for
the machine to read! Perhaps it's easier in Business/First but for the rest of us - the
majority of us - it's murder in the airports these days.
I'm too busy/tired today to write much now.
The garden is still suffering from the drought which was in effect
when we left. It's cooled a bit but apparently only a light shower fell
the entire time we were gone, almost three weeks!
No much-needed soaking rain.
I looked out early this morning as the sun came up - jet lag had me up
before 5 AM, so I started unpacking. Then I noticed just a touch of color
brightening the morning - those hardy little morning glory seeds did
germinate after all!
I'll be back here later in the week - stories and photos to share of some new, interesting,
often mysterious, lovely places and beautiful people. . . . . . .and tales of life on board
a small ship.
