I just got back from a delightfully romantic cruise to Bermuda. The boat goes right out of Boston, so for me there’s no flights involve. We simply drive into Boston, park there, hop on the boat, and then it’s beautiful sailing for a week. The boat arrives at Bermuda and docks there so you can get on and off whenever you want.
I love to snorkel and take photography of architecture, so it was just wonderful. Having delightful food available whenever I wanted was a treat, too!
Nearly every building on Bermuda seems to be done in pastel shades of pink, blue, yellow, and green. This church is at St. George’s which is a beautiful village.
I have a romantic suggestion for people considering a trip like this. On one of the ferry rides I was seated near a dating couple. The woman spent the entire hour-long trip complaining about her ex-boyfriend. I get it. The guy wasn’t right for her. But surely there’s a better way to spend one’s energy and vacation time than stressing and ranting about someone who, hopefully, is now no longer important in your life. Especially when you’ve got a new, interested beau sitting right there beside you.
Life is short. Every day is precious. Treasure it and spend it enjoying the people around you who care for you.
And do try a cruise :). They are often fantastically cost-effective ways to explore places full of beauty and wonder.
Have you gone on a cruise? Where did you go? I’d love to hear about it!

The issue is spectacular. There are just amazing stories and poems in this. It is heartwarming how many high quality artists trust us with their works.
Today’s lovely yoga session on the back porch filled me with calm energy for my day. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, a gentle breeze was blowing, and life was radiating with peace. I am so grateful to have that opportunity to reset myself before I begin my task list.
Here’s my routine – it’s a free ebook and is suitable for all levels. Feel free to ask me with any questions!
