The reason for my absence last week is that Joe and I were treated to a cruise from Fremantle to Melbourne by Ma and Pa! This seems an ideal holiday for people like me with mobility problems but in truth I walked miles on-board and still gained 2 kilos weight! We flew back from Melbourne and Mum and Dad have gone on to sail right around New Zealand via Hobart and then finish off in Sydney next week.

I think I'll simply post a photo from each of the seven days and let them do the talking. The inside pics will be Joe's as my camera is too primitive to take good indoor shots. Enjoy. We did!
|As we left Fremantle we passed the replica of Captain Cook's barque The Endeavour...it looked like a rowing boat compared to the cruise ship.|
|Joe took to sailing like a duck to water!|
|First stop was the historic town of Albany where horse-drawn carriage rides were on offer as well as a busy craft market. We met my sister-in-law, Wendy and 2 of our 3 nephews, Pete and Dave. Jack was doing an exam at school.|
|Then followed 2 full days at sea where we had a little camera fun! Hi Dad and Joe in the background!|

This is our lovely cabin(bathroom on left behind the door) and the ship itself, The Radiance of The Seas...
So a week in a nutshell...too much wonderful food to eat, lots of laughs and interesting conversations, late nights and karaoke for Joe, Quiz Shows, whales in Cockburn Sound and beautiful islands off Albany and then later in the week relaxing properly with a good novel from the on-board library.
Have a terrific Thursday,
