... International Waters. The Production Show tonight is one that we saw last year, so I was relegated to watching movies on deck. Today was Frozen and tonight Divergent, neither of which I'd seen.

... I saw! I was talking to the lovey girl in the shop and she was talking about what it's like living there .... And she mentioned her parents were related ........ .... Jeebus! Way to over share! I think they were like ... Second cousins. Then up to the Butt of Lewis, which is the northern most part of Lewis. Lighthouse up there and some awesome cliffs. But very windy and cold!
