water, water, everywhere


Day after day, day after day,
We stuck, nor breath nor motion;
As idle as a painted ship
Upon a painted ocean.

Water, water, every where,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.


~from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
by Samuel Taylor Coleridge


Water, water everywhere here today, it has been raining for 3 days, with a total of 7 inches in the last 24 hours! Not much to do here in the rain, just watch it fall.

There are 2 cruise ships at the dock today, bummer for those folks wanting to get out and explore the city.

Our two resident tourists, Carrie and Daniel, are also bummed out, leaving out tomorrow. Good thing they watched the weather forecast and crammed a lot into the two sunny days we had last week. Could be worse, could have paid thousands of dollars for a cruise and be stuck on a boat for a week in the rain...

Here's hoping for sunny skies again soon!
