Horsing Around
June, 30, 2013

Last day of vacation, there was time for a few more shots.  Anna had planned this one since the first day. We bought the horse mask last month, the kids thought it would be fun to bring it on the trip. It was big hit with other passengers. It even made into a formal portrait that was added to the wall of fame on the ship and the closed circuit TV. Back to life tomorrow… at least it will be a short week, maybe if I wear the horse mask at my desk no one will notice I am sleeping.

Last Dance

We said goodbye to Christian, our head waiter tonight.  He was awesome and I am not just saying that because he brought me 5 lobster tails one night. He was great with the kids, service and just a nice guy.  The staff put on a dance to Gangham Style, he told us about it last night, so Danny thought we should bring him the horse mask to help out.  Christian grabbed it and danced away. I am not sure who is going to feed me in the manner that I have become accustomed to going forward.

Miss Peggy’s Cove
June 28, 2013

Today was a trip to Peggy’s Cove in Halifax. It poured, and I did not bring a raincoat… I was soaked. The good news is it stopped raining as soon as we were back on the bus. I did not get many shots, but I got the best I could. We took a tour with a guide who talked about the history of Halifax.  Did you know every death in Canada originated from Halifax?  Every story begins with a boat sinking, blowing up, going missing and ends with homeless/nameless kids, thousands of houses being destroyed or everyone in Canada dying. Very beautiful place, very depressing stories.

Then back on the boat for dinner, horse mask fun and Danny’s debut as the next top karaoke singer. He brought the house down with his solo rendition of Living on a Prayer and then later with his duet with Mom on Don’t Stop Believing.

Headed off the boat today and drove down the Fundy Trail in New Brunswick, Canada. Wish the weather was better, but is still was a great time.  The views are incredible, one of those places that photos don’t do it justice.  Here are a few shots.

Greetings from somewhere in the Mediterranean… I have no idea where I am. The map on my phone says Guam, but I think it might be off. Today was an “at Sea” day.  So we rode elevators and ran around with a horse mask on.  Makes sense if you are here… maybe. The horse mask is very popular. The second picture is a random group that insisted on using it – and us – as props for all their family shots.

Tomorrow: Land Ho!  Which is not an expression for a prostitute island, I asked.
