I was supposed to be fully recovered from major surgery by the time the Caribbean cruise on NCL's Epic was scheduled. But Mother Nature has her own ideas, right? The doctor said I could do the cruise, but without any of the water fun around me -- no ocean, no hot tubs or pools, & worst of all NO WILD WATER SLIDES!
I packed up an extra large supply of new beads, all my tools that TSA approves for flights & cruises, & sat where I could SEE the water slides. It might not have been the most fun I could have on a cruise, but it was the most productive:) PLUS several cruisers talked me out of some of my creations for money. Not bad!
MORAL: Clouds might have silver linings after all!
