Things feel grim! Tom is still having problems with passing kidney stones and not feeling very well. This has been going on for over a week now and we’ve been to the hospital, then the doctor’s office, and no relief yet, from the medications he received. We’ve searched the internet for cures, have tried friends advice, and still no relief! After going through the quadruple bi-pass, May 15th, and recovering from that, he’s just jumped from the pan into the fire with something else. We had such high hope’s that life for him would be better and he’d be more like his usual fun self, but not so! It’s terribly depressing!
I got out yesterday and wandered down to the waterfront, just as the cruise ships began their journey to Alaska. One following the other very closely, and likely they would meet the cruise ships that are coming down from Alaska to Vancouver. I’m not sure how many go back and forth on the weekends and through the week.
This is the first one, and I never got the name of it, but wondered if it was going to clear the bridge. Not much room eh?
It’s Holland America “Zuiderdam”, where Martin and Joan will be celebrating their 45th anniversary next weekend!! I think they have the next thing to the Penthouse! Hot tub in the room and menu of pillows, and every luxury you can imagine!!! Way to Go!! Have Fun!!
Can you imagine a little town of Ketchikan in Alaska when these three ships arrive at once! Mayhem!!! Plus there will be also ships arriving from Seattle there as well. However….what fun and luxury!!
Then, following that, came this ship and no cargo!! They come in to Vancouver from likely China, loaded with containers and JUNK, coming to Canada, and when it goes out, it’s empty. Make’s ya kinda think about it eh??/
Just a picture through the trees where I sat in the shade. It was VERY hot yesterday.
Now, I’m going back to what I was doing before the blog! See ya!
