This picture needed a lot of cleanup, and still isn't a great picture, but it is a great story. On the right you can barely see Roberta's mom Nova, and next to her is Rita, her caregiver. Nova and Roberta's late father accompanied us in 2004 when we crossed the Atlantic. Nova wanted to accompany us on Sans Souci's first trip since our return to the United States. Nova loved the Atlantic crossing and wasn't going to miss this chance, even though physically it wasn't easy. We rigged up a special gang plank, and brought a special scooter for her to get up the docks, and she had an excellent time! This picture shows 'taco night,' our first dinner in the United States aboard Sans Souci.
