2014 - OCEAN PRINCESS - COPENHAGEN

COPENHAGEN - THE FINAL STOP BEFORE GETTING OFF THE OCEAN PRINCESS ....

LOTS OF WINDMILLS WITH SWEDEN IN THE DISTANCE ..

AN UNUSUAL BRIDGE IN THAT IT ONLY SPANS HALF THE DISTANCE FROM SHORE TO SHORE.

HALF WAY, IT DIVES UNDERWATER & BECOMES A TUNNEL - INGENIOUS ...

PASSING THE END OF A RUNWAY ....

..... WITH THE PLANES VERY CLOSE OVERHEAD ....

I AM OFF ON ANOTHER WALK THROUGH A TOWN..

THE BOAT TIES UP CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN & THE NORMAL ROUTE WOULD BE TO FOLLOW THE SHORELINE BY GOING LEFT.

I GO RIGHT ..

AROUND A FORT & SOME GARDENS ....

INTO THE GARDENS OF THE PALACE

NOTE THE PRAM - IT IS NOT UNUSUAL HERE. IT IS LIKE ON OLD FASHIONED BIKE WITH A LARGE BASKET ON THE FRONT. PEOPLE PUT THEIR KIDS IN THE BASKET ..

ANOTHER NAKED LADY ....

A GAME OF BOULES JUST AT THE EXIT OF THE PALACE GARDENS ..

AND INTO THE CITY ..

A VERY STRANGE BUILDING ....

AND ANOTHER .

A VERY AGRESSIVE SEAGUL GETTING SOMETHING OUT OF THE TRASH ONLY TO FIND IT WAS NOT EDIBLE ..

UNLIKE THESE MUSSELS - THE BEST I HAD ALL TRIP..

PETER & JUDY - DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE SO GLUM ABOUT. THEY GET OFF IN DOVER, SWITCH TO SOUTHAMPTON AND TAKE THE DAWN PRINCESS HOME TO AUSTRALIA. FORTY DAYS OF THAT & THEY JUST FINISHED A MONTH WITH ME ON THE OCEAN PRINCESS.

A LOT OF LONG DISTANCE AUSSIES ON BOARD. AMANDA GOT ON AT DOVER FOR THE FOURTEEN DAY BALTIC LEG, BUT SHE WAS MEETING HER MUM WHO HAD GOT ON IN SYDNEY - NEARLY FIVE MONTHS AGO.

THE CHAMPAGNE PYRAMID ALMOST DONE ...

MADDIE - THE CRUISE DIRECTORS ASSISTANTS ASSISTANT & ONE OF THE DANCERS ..

MADDIE WAS VERY PLEASANT & WE SPENT QUITE A BIT OF TIME CHATTING DURING THE VOYAGE ...

P1180600.jpgP1180612.jpg

TIME TO POUR THE CHAMPAGNE ...

THE PRINCIPAL DANCER ....

large_P1180623.jpglarge_P1180627.jpg

A LAST LOOK OUT ON DECK & A LAST CHAT WITH AMANDA WHOSE PHOTO I DID NOT GET, SILLY BOY.

large_P1180632.jpg

AND AS THEY PUT AWAY THE CHAMPAGNE GLASSES THAT'S IT FOR THE CRUISE.

AN EXCELLENT TIME WAS HAD. CANNOT THINK OF A THING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT.

ONLY THING LEFT TO DO IS BREAKFAST WITH THE MIKE & HIS YOUNG LADIES & TO FIND OUT THAT THE ONLY OTHER TWO OTHER YOUNG BEAUTIES ON BOARD ARE FROM THE CZECH REPUBLIC. WE HAVE BEEN PUZZLING OVER THAT FOR TWO WEEKS.

STILL GOT BIT OF MY TRIP LEFT THOUGH - BATH & PORTSMOUTH
