Cruise ships passing in the rain

Three cruise ships passed by our apartment this afternoon; one blew its horn--a particularly large ship, probably 7 stories above the deck level.

Jeff and Mary have never been into the idea of taking a cruise. We know people (including family) who have taken cruises and have enjoyed them immensely. But we're the type of folks who like to get to a destination and visit the destination itself. We spend almost no time in our hotel room, and we rarely take advantage of anything a hotel might offer (restaurant, gym, spa, and the like).

So for us, a cruise just doesn't seem like a good vacation option, at least not right now.

It's rained most of the day, unfortunately including the time Rachel and Mary were making the long shlep back from ShopRite (2 miles each way). It was a good warm-up for tomorrows AIDS Walk NY, though. Don't forget to click on our link in yesterday's blog entry to make a donation! Cyndi Lauper is supposed to be there, along with a bunch of other celebrities.

Stay tuned for photos ...
