When I arrived at this dockside.. where I hadn't been for a long time. I had to stop to get my bearings. While looking around for the road to take to the Marina. There right in front of us, was moored one of the largest ships in the world. M/V Independence of the seas--
It takes 4.370 passengers. We counted about 9 decks. Imagine with the crews quarters and engine rooms , kitchen and more. One wonders, how it can float!!!
The last time I was on board was over two years ago with M. We all raised our glasses in memory of an excellent first class mariner.. and dad.
|There are two double side cabins and a nice big forepeak cabin.|
|Walking to the boat.. really super jetties.|
|I have had my eye on this beautiful sculptured turtle for some time. Its all hand carved out of stone. I would love to have it next to my pool. Isn't it beautiful. Some artisans are so gifted.|
The owners , told me that the nursery was up for sale. They are going to retire. Hope it doesn't close, as the next one is far away from me.
|Maria , took this photo when we were crossing the 25th April bridge, on our way home.|
The statue of "Christ our Savior" - I have never been up to the top. You can walk in the arms. I dont like heights that much.
We do have many around here. The one I showed you was the first I had ever seen.
They are not agressive to man. In fact, some people keep them as pets. As the the Egyptians do.
Its been work in the garden since Saturday last. Planting all the flowers and pruning roses . General things that gardens need.
Hope to catch up with all your posts. On these wonderful summer days. One just wants to be outside all the time. I know I do.
Hope that you are all enjoying summer here in the Northern Hemesphere!!!
