... lunch in the Pacific Restaurant, for the first time, back for some more quoits. Temperature rising to a comfortable 20 degC. This time better luck we were partnered with another couple. George and the wife of the other couple beat me and the husband in the final. We were past Gibraltar by this time and on our way to Barcelona.

I consider myself lucky when the others talk about their kids' classes and of biting, scratching, bleeding and even barking, when all I've had to contend with (apart from the incessant 101 decibel din) are bouncing erasers and little Paola who won't utter a word.
When I'm back in my West Side Story retreat I've noticed I talk to myself less now, happy for the peace.
