Portugal and Islands Cruise

Posted by on August 15th, 2015

We just returned from a 14-day cruise, leaving from Liverpool, UK, and visiting Portugal (Lisbon and Oporto), the Azores and Madeira. We were on the Black Watch, a Fred Olsen ship and were the only Yanks on board an otherwise-nearly-all-British cruise. (A handful of Australians plus a few assorted other EU citizens made up the difference.) Two more pins in the map for Marcia, bringing her total to 166; three more for me, bringing my total to 154.

Touring Cuba

Posted by on August 15th, 2015

Back in January, we spent a week touring Cuba. We had already booked the trip when the U.S. government started opening up relations with Cuba, so it was a good time to go, before the invading hordes of U.S. tourists arrive once the process of getting tour permissions is eased.

Sorry that it took a while to finish selecting and editing photos but the photo album is posted for your viewing pleasure.
