Right now I am sitting here in my living room thinking about the weather while Ms Lucy (Labrador dog)
relaxes enjoying the comfort of the carpet and at times the bed.
You see it is starting to get darker and cooler now
while during the day it is warmer !
As our Alaska cruise passengers arrive , one hopes they have a sweater or hoody as weather can surprise one and we are not in the part that gets more rain or could
