Our "new" dog did not eat for a day and a half, drank water, sheds like a snow storm and did not relieve herself for over 20 hours. Stress, dog stress, not human.

Now gradually she is getting into our routine and feeling confident in her new home.

The key is patience, which I know from reading your posts you have and show Lily.

Dogs are the best. Be well, enjoy the rest of your stay.

My Best

Bud

Hi Maggie... I think I'd be pretty tired by now... you've been a busy girl!!! today you're off on the cruise... waiting for pics of that!!!

thanks everyone for clearing up the "coil" thing... I've had mine for ages... I now feel good that I could find another one again if needed... I use it a lot in motels that don't have microwaves... it stays in the car in a soft sided lunch size cooler that has cocoa, coffees and snack bars in it... I'll look for the 12volt...

Great trip Maggie... you are an inspiration to me... hugs and love, gail

Hi Maggie!

I've been lurking. We are work camping in Florida for the season and I rarely get on the forums.

What a marvelous trip you have had. I have enjoyed catching up. You know who approves of your travel and is along with you. He's glad you found that ring.

And I love the photo of the early cook pot/grill. Made me think of all the cooking that goes on at the rallies.

Safe travels home to Lily's wagging tail end!

Thanks, all.

Pick up for the day cruise was especially early, 7am, one of several buses gathering folks for this large ship. English, French, German, Spanish, Greek, at least, on board.

The seas are clear and blue, many, many sailboats, cruise and cargo ships of varying sizes. Hydra and Poros are lovely, the immediate shore walk where we are discharged is lined with overpriced little tourist shops, but the quaintness and unique character of these towns cannot be missed. Donkeys are available for riding...,I think not.

In between Hydra and Poros, they do a class in the dining area to teach the Greek dance.....some participate, most of us watch and take pictures.

In the second seating for lunch, it was almost 3pm before we ate..... a long time since breakfast, but I had a bit of frozen Greek yogurt on Hydra to tide me over. The food was decent, fresh, a good variety, and plentiful

Aegina is the last island and the pistachio capitol of the world. Pistachio trees in groves cover the island, and sellers are hawking them to visitors everywhere. We had a bus tour of the island, then a stop at a taverna for unidentifiable seafood bits.....and ouzo. 40 proof, someone said. Pretty strong, but I drank it.

I also ate a couple of the unidentifiable seafood bits....one was calamari, I think, don't know about the other, but they were good. A couple little fishes were intact, eyes and all, I just couldn't.

Back to the ship and to Athens, then by bus to the hotels after 8pm.

It has been a good trip, a very long last day, I am ready for home and will be off to the airport soon.

XO

I was actually still asleep when my 5am wake up call came. Got myself ready and pulled my belonging together for the great departure, after 8 nights in this room.

Left for the sweet girls that clean my room the two cowls I have crocheted this trip, avoids me packing them and leaves a little of me behind to hopefully warm their necks on chilly mornings in Greece. They speak no English, but understand gestures well and keep everything tidy and spotless. I like.

Picked up cheese and something filled pastry for my breakfast at the corner bakery and wound my way thru the irregular streets of central Athens to the Omonia Metra station..... without even needing to consult my Pocket Earth.

Making sure I got onto the right trains required questioning of the natives, tho, who are always so unwaveringly accommodating.......they not only tell you where to wait, but gesture when it is time, make sure you get off at the right stop and direct you to your next train. Always with a smile and doing just a bit more than is required. The kind and friendly Greek people have made it very easy to be here by myself.

Once through TSA....the crochet hooks, tiny scissors and cuticle trimmers always require a second look.....I settle down with my last coffee in Greece and indulge in this chocolate something. I don't know what it is, but it is delicious, and I deserve it.

I will arrive in Chicago late evening on Friday, spend the night near the airport and take the train on home on Saturday. So much better that being up all night.


Maggie

Waiting at the airport.

Listening to others speak of their GI distress, etc., I am proud to say there has not been an illness or injury. No falls, trips, etc.

Lots of beautiful balconies here.

Safe travels home Maggie, thx for posting during your trip it was fun to read along. My favorite pics were the harbor of the little village on a hill with the sailboat and the balconies.

Maggie,
Thanks for the "shared trip"! One of those I wish for, now have experienced through your eyes. Almost makes us think we were there! (I could not have eaten the little fish with eyes, either)! Don't want to see my. Food look back at me!

Your photos were so pretty. Enjoyed each and every one, especially the one of you at the end. You're a very lovely lady. No wonder Doug fell in love with you! I'm sure he is proud of your strength and determination. I admire you for it. Our circumstances...good and bad...mold who we become...only if we embrace it! I appreciate knowing of women "who rise to the occasion and conquer life!" You are one of those!

Welcome home! Give Lily an extra hug from me! Evelyn.

Thanks, everyone.

At the Philadelphia airport, waiting for my flight to Chicago.

I am tired, but all is well.
