I didn’t get much done yesterday. The sun was out for most of the day, and I rejoiced. As we neared four o’clock, over my book I mentioned dinner out. He mentioned chicken pot pies and slaw at home from the depths of his book. We compromised. But the new deli was closed.

With Subway sandwiches in hand, we parked by the bay. I noted that one of the Disney ships was downtown as it had been for a week plus. Just as I reached the end of my sandwich, I looked up to see that the ship’s profile had changed. It was moving at last classically elegant against the city skyline.

The pandemic created disaster in the shipping industry. Not only could they not go anywhere, they were stuck with crews who were often ill with Covid and couldn’t go home. In May of 2020, over 200 crew members on the Disney Wonder tested positive for Covid.

The Disney Wonder has been in warm lay-up off the coast. Here, with apologies, are Donald Duck and Daisy Duck on the Disney Wonder’s stern.

I love San Diego's skyline.
I've been off the air for a bit.

Wow. What a shot, with a plane overhead as well! Are toy experiencing the lightning, thunder and rain? If I didn't have an opening to go to, I would go dance in it!

What a vast floating city. Simply amazing. I’ve never been on a cruise so can’t really imagine what it’s like.

The Disney Wonder is a beautiful ship. Your decision to head out with sandwiches was a good one.

That is one huge ship!

It's very small in comparison to the newer cruise ships.
