No, this first picture is not our crossing the North Atlantic. It was taken by a friend on Holland America’s Veendam off the Falkland Islands a few weeks ago. It is what I imagined the crossing would be like, but no it was smooth all the way across. The second picture is of my sweethearth on the deck of the Queen Mary 2. She has always wanted to do the romantic picture on an ocean liner with the sea in the background. We had not counted on the fact that the ship travels at 30 mph and the wind blows from the opposite direction at about the same speed. That makes a gale force wind out on the deck. Not good for romantic picture taking. The trip was quiet and we enjoyed a lot of down time. We will be arriving in Southampton in a few days and then do some syfoging around Merry Ole England.
Back in Texas the Christmas Season is coming on and work has been quite hectic. Hectic in my business is good. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I’ll see you next year as we continue this journey through England and France.
