Here and Now

Civitavecchia, Italy

Don't let the calmness of the blues fool you. One look at the surface of the Mediterranean Sea in the background will give you a hint.  Onboard ship's cam shows the current wind speed at about 41 km/h or roughly 25 miles/hr.

But it is a beautiful to look at day with the blue-scaped sky and sea. It was a bit uncomfortable on deck, more that I was worried I would be blown off the ship. There must be at least half a dozen large cruise ships in port at this moment. I imagine the tour destinations to be quite crowded today.

Favorite spots to see when in Rome is of course the Colosseum and the Sistine Chapel. I am really happy I saw both of these attractions about sixty years ago before they were so famous. I think I might have been the first person ever to toss a coin in the Fountain of Trevi. It will be a long day for those that have trekked off ~ all aboard time today is 7:30 pm.
