    Dover to Calais

    May 9, 2017

    So.. after a lovely few days in Buckingham for new godson William's Christening - save for our bicycles being stolen 😫 - we're now on a very quiet ferry to Calais (sadly sans velos).

    It's a beautiful sunny day, hopefully it will follow us for the next few months.

    Will update when we are settled in Switzerland 🇨🇭Read more

    On way finally

    January 8, 2018 ⋅ ☁️ 5 °C

    After two unnecessary nights in Jersey we are on our way to France, at last. First delayed by bad weather then a stevedore strike in France then bad weather again we are now half way there.
    We had a mooch round St a Helier and did the Railway walk from Corbiere to St Helier in the wind.
    Will be glad to get down south to the sunshine and a little more warmth.
    All the best for 2018 everyone, health wealth and happiness all round

    Approaching Normandy

    May 6, 2015 ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

    I awoke early and, went to breakfast, and took a few photos of a passing container ship. Glenda is still sick. The crew has advanced our U. K. passport check by half an hour. I guess bureaucrats must always find something to do to stay busy. After a light lunch of spaghetti, we got an ice cream cone at Swirls. We passed between Southampton and the beaches of Normandy, and I went up to the sky deck to take some photos just to remind me of D-Day on June 6, 1944. Since we had a late dinner planned, I brought back to the stateroom a fruit and cheese plate around 4:30 pm. We dressed for formal dinner and ate with Hal and Sharon Miles and two of their friends, Stella from Long Island and her daughter-in-law Jamie from Dallas, Texas. I photographed the group; our waiters, Nole and Leila; Vincent Paul and his companion Naomi Cornelius; and Lee and Sandy Patkus from Orlando. We went down to the piazza to watch the dropping of all the balloons. I wanted to photograph the event, but when one of the entertainers began to drag people out onto the dance floor, I decided it was time for me to leave. So we're ready for bed now. Glenda is feeling much better and we're looking for a good day in Amsterdam tomorrow.Read more

  • Day39

    Well last night's entertainment was very good, well most of it.
    They act in the theatre was a Neil Diamond tribute by the name of Gary Ryan, he had apparently won Starts in their eyes a few years ago.
    He was very good and at times sounded more like Neil Diamond than Neil himself.
    After the show Sheila and I decided to have one more drink then turn in.
    So we went to the cabaret lounge but the group was very mediocre, so we proceeded to the Lords Tavener pub, and the act in there was superb, they were called the Intermission Duo, he played keyboards and guitar and did a bit of singing, but his wife was the main singer and she was fantastic, she was a very bluesy type singer with a bit of rock and jazz thrown in.
    They didn't just do covers they did their own arrangements of them, and the good news for us is that they're on for the full cruise.
    Today is Wednesday it's 6.45am sand the weather is cold, a few more days and I'll be pissing you off with reports of 80 degree sunshine lol.
    8.30am and we've just finished breakfast with Jennifer and John, Jen's gone to the gym and John has gone for a walk around the deck.
    Sheila and I have come to Anderson's bar for a quiet read and a knit, the knit is for Sheila obviously.
    Anderson's bar of an evening is so quiet and miserable, that I'm sure you have to be certified dead to get in lol.
    Anyway back to my book........
