... you, wearing shorts didn’t help but Jon and I believe that this is summer, shorts must be worn. Rosemary on the other hand, being somewhat wiser, was wearing no fewer than 5 layers of clothes! Having said that, if you ignore the cold, it was gorgeous. What views. The whole horizon to the east was filled with mountains, some snow-capped and islands.
