    July 1  Saw “Napoli, Brooklyn” by Meghan Kennedy at the Laura Pels Theatre. It is based upon a real-life disaster, the surprise staging of which, is mind shattering! However, the story line has a surfeit of themes added; religious brain-washing, the effect of a bullying husband and father and lesbian freedom. None of these is fully convincing in spite of the excellent acting of the cast.

Bermuda on the “Breakaway”

The itinerary for the NCL cruise out of New York is: two days at sea, two days docked at the Royal Dockyard and two days at sea on the return journey. In other words, a completely relaxing, lazy, week in the sun! A great many passengers spoiled their trip by taking shore excursions, like, sight-seeing tours, waffling around in glass-bottomed boats, snorkeling and the like. But we sat out on our little balcony during the sunlit hours (and some of the lighted evening hours)  and did absolutely nothing, with the authority of well-informed travelers.  The ‘nothing’ did not exclude the raising of the occasional glass of Malbec to the occasional flying fish!

Here are the few pictures I took. Click on them for detail:
