I didn’t take one single picture yesterday. Not one. So to keep up my streak of posting a photo every day, I decided to take a picture of my “bed” for all of you to enjoy:
As you can see, this “bed” style fits somewhere between “twin” and “doggy bed” in the spectrum of bed styles. The couch is just long enough that I can put my head at one end, and my knees hang off the other end. I’ve gotten used to the strange positions I have to sleep in, so when I get home, I may have to buy a couch this size to sleep in. That king size bed at home just doesn’t hold a candle to this one.
Anyway, yesterday I went on a 5 hour cruise into the Atlantic. The boat tour went through Casco Bay, which has about 100 little islands. Some of them are privately owned, some are communities. An interesting thing about them was that they have a one room schoolhouse that kids go to until they are in sixth grade, at which point they must take the 90 minute ferry ride to Portland every day. Talk about fun; riding a ferry for 90 minutes in the dead of winter in Maine. I don’t envy those kids.
We got to Bailey Island, where we had lunch. I had a veritable gaggle of shrimp, which were very good, although the service was meager at best. I wanted to shop on Bailey Island, but as luck would have it, there aren’t any stores. Weird.
On the cruise back, I fell asleep on the bow of the ship, and managed to get some sun. Now I am brown and crispy.
Today I get to stay in the hotel room most of the day and work on my presentation for work that I have to give on Tuesday. I wouldn’t be worried about it, except that the VP and the general manager will be there, and I don’t want to screw it up. So I may go downtown for lunch, but other than that, I’m working today.
