Europe Oar Bust

Afloat in romance…
Like the guy in this week’s comic, I sometimes have trouble reaching my destination. (I once ended up in Scotland by accident. No, I’m not kidding.)

So last week we flew down to San Diego (without ending up in Scotland) and took a four-day cruise that included stops at Catalina Island (truly gorgeous) and Ensenada, Mexico (not as impressive unless you’re into shopping for silver jewelry or quasi-legal drugs–which I’m not.) Amazingly, no international incidents occurred–that can be traced to me–and we generally had a terrific time!
