We enjoyed some good adventures on our 2011 cruise, nonetheless it felt good to return home last week. The trip south from the boat was routine, usually a good thing when you'e on the road. We have run this route so often it seems like our SUV runs on autopilot. (Note: that's my opinion, not necessarily the driver's.) We cleared U.S. Customs at the border in record time and motored on, pausing for a visit with some good friends along the route.
At home we opened the door to a special treat. Niece Hilary was there to welcome us with a hug, a big smile and a table of treats. The platter of homemade, hand-decorated cookies said it all. Thank you, Hilary.
We've been home for a week and are now focused on life ashore instead of life afloat. The cookies may be long gone, but that warm, welcome-home feeling remains as we reconnect with friends and our Seattle life..
