We're off...

...on the high seas. Well, not too high, I hope. I know how lucky we are, especially after years of rainy holidays in England with the children (we never once had a dry one. Not even in the baking summer of 1976, although we did have fun), and while I'm not really a cruise person, John isn't that steady on his feet, so it really suits us. I don't  have the right clothes, the right tan or the right (very white) teeth, but no matter. We're much looking forward to it.
 
 

Our "suite" (ha) and the ship we're going on. Last time we went steerage....


I shall miss Adrian's beetles and Graham's stuning views, and all the other updates from the blogs I follow, but I'll catch up on our return. I am not taking iPad or anything else electronic with me. I need to be weaned off...

  1. Enjoy your cruise, Frances! Who cares about the "right" teeth or clothes? It's a holiday!

    1. Thank you, Meike. I thought of you as I tried to assemble a suitable "wardrobe". You would have done far better!

  2. Oh, those neon-white teeth and the scary coloured contact lenses. Celebs are starting to look more like Frankenstein's monsters.
    Enjoy the cruise and stay away from the holiday makers with glow-in-the-dark dentures.

    1. Thanks, Lynne. There are also fascinating face lifts, and I can't help searching for the suture lines (not nice, I know...).

  3. Bon voyage Frances. Not my scene but I don't know a single person who has said that and then been on one and changed his or her mind.

    1. Thank you, Graham. If we were both fit, I'd go for a week walking in your part of the world, but this will be a pretty good second.

    1. Included rather than "free", Adrian. Alcohol, any kind, also included, which is nice!

    1. Thank you, Teresa. I'll take a notebook, though, although it will probably come back empty!
