[Insert standard “Sorry it’s been so long” explanation and apology here]
It’s summer again, and for the first time in about three years, we are getting a true summer, with all of the H’s well-represented. Hot, hazy, humid galore. We’re already four days into a heat alert, topped with a smog alert. Air conditioners are chugging away earnestly, exchanging hot drips of water outside for cool, dry air inside. This is one time when I truly appreciate the luxuries of artificiality.
As the anniversary of last year’s European cruise approaches, so do I approach only about the mid-point of editing all of the pictures I took on that trip. I'm hoping to maybe be able to finish the editing before I hit the day we arrived in Venice. Here are some of the pictures so far, anyway. Not quite one year later.
