Bratislava, Slovakia

    Overcast but warm for most of the day today. I cut the back grass and got the strimmer working on the borders. That should be it for the next week or two. A swim was called for after I had swept up all the clippings.

  Back to the cruise. After boarding the boat at Budapest and spending the day sight seeing, we set sail for Bratislava, Slovakia. We arrived early next morning  and went on a walking tour of downtown. It was extremely hot so we tried to keep in the shade.

Budapest, Hungary

   Just my usual tennis and gardening today and two swims - my blog is getting very repetitive. However, Wednesday was different as James was over for his half birthday sleepover and we went to Red Lobster for dinner. He had garlic shrimp and popcorn shrimp with lots of French fries. I had lobster and crab dip with tostitos - pretty light on the lobster. I ate some of his shrimp and fries. We were both stuffed when we got home but we had made sausage rolls before going out and he managed to put one away before bed.

  The construction site which was my front yard is now filled in with earth and awaiting some grass seed. They were very speedy and the street is quiet once more. So on to my cruise photos.

A Construction Site

   This is what I see when I walk out of my house these days. One of the big telecom companies is laying cable all over town and it is my street's turn this week! The noise on Tuesday, when they were digging the holes, was horrendous all day - quite gave me a headache. Wonder what the next stage will entail? Stay tuned.

Finally posting photos!

   It was a lovely day at tennis although it became quite humid as the morning progressed. Not too many people - just the regulars - so we didn't have long to wait between sets. I brought cookies to go with the coffee and they got snapped up lickety split! A swim when I got home was called for and I had another after working in the garden later this afternoon. One more border cleared of weeds!   

Some garden photos to see if the photo link is still working.

Phlox and Bee Balm (sideways).


Roses and more Bee Balm

Yah!! Tomorrow I will start loading some photos from my cruise.
So I now have posted from the computer file and the camera.
