Ha!It took about seventeen steps, but I finally got photos onto the blog!! Here is DH in the Jade suite we got as a free upgrade at the Pan Pacific Hotel. This is just the sitting room area. There's also a separate bedroom, a bath and a half, a kitchen area, and a secluded little vanity perfectly lighted to apply makeup.
I sing the praises of PanPacific! Even the bellhop makes eye contact and seems genuinely interested in your comfort and contentment.
And this is the balcony of the Jade suite. Immense! And whadda view! I spent many a happy daydream imagining weddings held out here.
Then , for something completely different, the view from our shipboard cabin. Yes, we look directly out on to the lifeboat we have been assigned to. Hey, we booked an inside cabin, so this is an upgrade. Natural light, a view of the sky, and the occasional entertainment of watching the crewmen washing things down or painting them up.
Tea at the Empress in Victoria, BC . Beautiful china! Crisply ironed napkins, perfect tea and yummies to devour. It was such a civilized experience!
I wore this same black dress every night, so had to think of how to make it look different. Beth Miles made me a necklace to go with my red cardigan. I asked for a necklace that says, "Look at ME!" so no one would notice that ". .. it's that same damn dress again. Doesn't that woman own anything else?" The necklace is so very right for me. I love it! And nobody noticed my dress.
Knitting here on Saturday. The theme is harvest. Pumpkin bars, apple cake, grapes, figs if I can find them, and chicken with rosemary quichlettes. I hope.
