Quick Update From Rotterdam

Yesterday our France tour ended and we took the train to Rotterdam.  Today we board the Oasis of the Seas for a 13 day sail back to Ft. Lauderdale, FL.  It is rainy and overcast today; quite the reverse of our sail over here in early September when it was sunny and warm.  Perhaps the ship will take the southern route so we can enjoy some warmer weather.
     Our France tour was very good and we had an excellent tour leader.  There were nice people in our group and we enjoyed some unique experiences, such as cognac tasting in a 13th century former royal residence, and experiencing total religious immersion in Lourdes.  Of course, we took lots of pictures, which I haven't downloaded yet, so I cannot add them to this post.  But I will try to do so when we get back to Florida.
     We are both well and have been doing a lot of walking when possible, trying to keep up some sliver of fitness, but it will be a relief to get on the ship and have access to the gym.  Our clothes are getting tight!!  Needless to say, Elaine is now a very happy traveler since our upcoming travel plans are all on cruises.
