Holiday Photo's ( just a few)






Just a few photo's of our two week holiday cruising in the med,we had a great holiday and it was a lovely ship but we thought just a touch too big, as you can see from the picture of it anchored in the lovely Spanish town of Cartagena, we also visited Monte Carlo, but the views were spoilt by the staging that was being erected for the Rally at the end of May, In Corsica we anchored in Ajaccio and found a little street produce market, Roy took a photo of the spice stall, the aromas were delicious!, on the theme of food how's this for a craft - a Crane carved on a watermelon - so clever and done by one of the catering crew. And finally for one of the more formal evenings, we didn't scrub up too badly.

Lovely photos Maureen. I think you should hire yourselves out as guests to people who need elegant couples at their functions. There's a whole new career just waiting for you both! I see what you mean about the size of the ship. It looks enormous.

How amazing and how enormous is that ship? I'd never find my way back to the cabin!! You do look lovely all dressed up.
Those spices are just fabulous, I can smell them from here!
Isn't Monte Carlo amazing? I went there years ago and remember seeing a butler taking some flowers on a boat! How the other half lives!

When you said a crane I was thinking of the big things that move blocks around!!! lol.
