From the Tropics to the Frozen North

The View from Our Cabin on The Disney Wonder
Grand Cayman, January 25, 2015
During the past few days I have experienced extremes in temperatures. On Sunday, I was basking in the Tropics at Grand Cayman and enjoying the sun and storms and even last evening I was enjoying shirt sleeve weather in the Atlantic between the Bahamas and Miami. Last evening I was freezing in 23 degree temperatures back in the Baltimore area. This morning, the temperature is 15 degrees and it is clear there will be no golf outings in the ten day forecast.

But O sit here with the memories of a great vacation are behind me and today I return to the realities of life.

Good vacations help to remind me that there is much more to life than just going to work.

I had never cruised before.

I will be better prepared for my next nautical adventure. Cruising on a large ship is a lot different than spending a week on a catamaran sailing off the coast of St Vincent and the Grenadines. 

One thing both had in common was lack of connectivity to the internet. I'm not convinced that is a good thing.

But now I am back! I have to face the bitter cold where temperatures a just plain, cold!

At least the snow passed over us. 

The week away was a respite form the darkness and the cold. It has reminded me that springtime is less than about 60 days away! Followed by my trip to Sarasota for Spring Training!

And warmth. I think I will chase the sun.
