featuring scruffy beard and cruise belly
So, it’s time I start writing about the cruise. Paradoxically, I’m starting with a photo of yours truly after returning from the trip. I’m doing this to show a picture of me as relaxed as I have been in a very long time. It was terrific to have a vacation; I have already promised it will be less than 12 years until the next.
To those alarmed by my relaxation, don’t be: I went back to work the next day, and am now back to my own, personal normal.

I also feature my personal side-effect of the cruise, which I have named “Cruise Belly”. It is the natural result of eating your own body weight in food every day aboard a boat.
