The Vacation Sock

Yep - one sock that is on it's way:

We spend 5 days on Cozumel at a lovely resort called Occidental Grand. It is an all-inclusive: one price includes airfare, transfers and transportation to the resort and all the food and drink you want. This is one of the smaller properties with 252 rooms. The facilities were lovely, the staff friendly and the beach perfect.

We were true beach bums; we laid on the loungers under the palapas, read, knit, ate, had a few adult beverages and took one snorkeling trip. It was relaxing and recharging. I'll post some pics after I get them developed (we used a print camera this time).

It was lovely to get home on Monday. Now all the laundry is done and I even cooked lasagna for dinner last night in between students!

Friday starts the second of the summer operas. We are playing Don Pasquale by Donizetti. Again, the orchestra is greatly reduced so I am sure the manuscripts will be on our music stands Friday for us to fill in the parts not covered. Next week will be grueling but fun. I love playing opera!

Gotta go make some reeds and practice "fast" (get my chops back after our brief hiatus.) See you tomorrow.
