Back Again

Auntie's turn for the worse ended on May 11th when she passed away.  

I left for the New England and Canada knitting cruise on May 15th.  

My surreal spring has been one of profound loss sandwiched by two great trips.

So, here are a few photos from the cruise, which turned out to provide some time for me to decompress.  

Rose the Gypsy took good care of me.

Bar Harbor, Maine:

Lucy Neatby's House (Halifax, Nova Scotia):

The cemetery where some of the Titanic victims are buried (still Halifax):

Handmaiden hand-dyed yarns out to dry (also Halifax):

An exhibit in Halifax that opened up for us:

Some purchases - Rose the Gypsy leans toward softer colors, I go for the over-dyed ones:

Decompressing in The Crow's Nest:

Barry from Boston in the piano bar:

Belfast Mini-Mills on Prince Edward Island:

Monkey towel in our stateroom:

Quebec City (the coldest place we visited!):

The Boat:

I knit a bit too, and got a shawl finished (ok, the ends are not woven in, but it's still finished):

That's it for now.  Not sure where I'll go next, or when ...
