ZERO EXPECTATIONS.

ALL CRUISE LINES HAVE THEIR OWN WAY OF GETTING FOLKS OFF THE BOAT AND ON THEIR WAY TO THEIR EXCURSION.

YOU TRY ORGANISING THREE THOUSAND PEOPLE OF A SHIP WITHOUT A HICCUP.

IT'S QUITE A TRICK REALLY AND SOME HANDLE IT WELL & SOME NOT SO WELL. SOME IT IS A MAD SCRAMBLE & TOTAL CHAOS.

I FIND PRINCESS DO IT WELL.

THEY GET PEOPLE TO COME TO THE THEATER AT A PARTICULAR TIME & THEN SEAT THEM ACCORDING TO THEIR TOUR.

WHEN A TOUR IS READY, EVERYONE IS ALREADY GROUPED TOGETHER & THEY MARCH OFF TO THE WAITING BUSSES ON SHORE.

VERY ORGANISED, VERY CIVILIZED.

NOW SHE'S NOT...

IT IS A TAD WINDY HERE.....

WE MEET THE DRIVER & THE GUIDE. NEITHER HAS MUCH ENGLISH BETWEEN THEM. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT NOT LIKE LIKE THAT.

ME - I DO.

IT MEANS I WILL NOT HAVE TO HEAR SOMEONE DRONE ON FOR THE NEXT FOUR HOURS.

ANY GUESSES WHAT THAT IS?

GIVE UP YET?

CASHEWS. OR RATHER ONE CASHEW PER FRUIT. THAT'S A BUT SURPRISING!

AT THE FARM WE ARE JUST IN TIME FOR THE MILKING.

ANY VOLUNTEERS?

THIS LADIES UP FOR IT... HOPE SHE WARMED HER HANDS...

IT'S BEEN VERY HECTIC & MUST BE TIME TO RELAX & HERE WE ARE AT MORGAN'S ROCK,

NOT A BAD LITTLE PLACE

IT IS NOW INCREDIBLY WINDY & THE BLOWN SAND COULD TAKE THE SKIN OF A SUNBATHER IN NO TIME FLAT.

I GO FOR A WALK UP THE HILL & THIS IS ONE OF THE HOTEL ROOMS.

AND SOME SORT OF EXOTIC BIRD JUST HATCHED.

large_P1060556.jpglarge_P1060576.jpg

I HAVE ONE OF THE LOCAL BEERS - JUST TO BE SOCIABLE.

I SHOW THE GUIDE MY BABY BIRD PHOTO & HE SAYS IT IS A PALOMA.

AS IN LA PALOMA BLANCA - THE WHITE DOVE.

MY EXOTIC BIRD IS A DOVE - IT'S MUM IS PROBABLY HERE ON HOLIDAY FROM OTTAWA.

BUT THESE ARE EXOTIC....
