Please let it be a 1-2 star difficulty. I'm not sure that I have it in me to go through what I have these past two weeks!

I found it on the regular website. Solved and ashore. Glad for a simple one. Given the heat, will be looking for something cold, light and refreshing!

Finally on shore, after two weeks on the Pacific Princess.

There's no Guinness in the house, so I will have to be satisfied with a frozen strawberry daiquiri. After all, it is 90+ degrees again today.
