Down to the Sea in Ships

I'm looking out the window on the ship watching water and waves. The sea blissfully is calm and I am enjoying the trip immensely.

There is one little hitch. Somehow the password on my iPad is stuck and my iPad has been declared disabled. This makes blogging from the ship with photos undoable. I may be able to blog from my phone when we're in port, but I'm not sure how available wi-fi will be. I've been so enjoying keeping in touch and keeping a record of the trip. It's not to be.

I had also downloaded a number of books and was looking forward to catching up on my reading. I can read on my phone, but I've also quickly reverted to the more old-fashioned method and am reading a novel about Margaret Tudor by Jean Plaidy, "The Thistle and the Rose." I've also picked up a mystery in the library by Elly Griffiths, which looks very good, too.

Two or three years ago this wouldn't have been an issue, but now I am disappointed. But the sea is calm, the sky is a bright blue and I'm off to some of the best scenery in the world. I promise to share it all with you when I'm home.

As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care.

Technology is great when it works...and so quickly we come to rely on it. But we will look forward to your photos when you are able to share them. Have a wonderful time. It was pretty amazing to see you at Stonehenge. Wow.

Hope your iPad problems are straightened around soon. Technology can be frustrating, but enjoy the trip and take pictures it'll be over all too soon.

Might there be some technical support available for you? Hopefully you will have a solution and will be able to proceed as you had hoped. Thank you for taking us along.

It's a shame about your device not working. But you're out to sea and these things happen. Enjoy the books you found to read. You're on vacation, HAVE FUN.

Sometimes technology can be more of a pain than a help :) Hope it works itself out.

Have fun, sweet friend!
