Cruising Two

Memories in Memes


We headed up to Wallis Island; a mere dot in the sea.
It's manned for weather-forecasting! How lonely it must be!


A different story by the pool! Bodies wall to wall!
Two thousand 'guests' were on the ship! But I didn't count them all!

But gentler spots were everywhere; not all was a noisy riot.
The library was a lovely spot for a little peace and quiet.


One day some drama woke us from our drifting lethargy!
The Rescue Helicopter arrived! Someone was sick at sea!


At Cairns we caught the Sky-Rail way up into the sky,
Viewing the rolling countryside from way, way up on high.


Once there we found the tourist shops. We didn't want to buy.
But this colourful display of 'things' very soon caught my eye.

That night was a 'formal' night and I dressed all in black.
(I usually favour dresses which are more like 'a la sack'!)


The theatre was spacious and all the shows were great.
We liked to watch the show first and then have our dinner late.

One night the Waiters sang to us, the songs of many nations;
Here they're joining in the fun before returning to their stations.

And finally, here's Malcolm, squinting at the sun.
Sailing through the Whitsundays was picturesque and fun

Your cruise pictures are such fun. I always say my favorite souvenirs are the pictures I bring home. Thank you for sharing. We will be returning to a sister ship in a few weeks. ;)

That looks great fun Brenda. You look very classy in that little black outfit. Love the jewellery!

Glad it wasn't you or Malcolm that was ill!

Your cruise looks so delightful,
A veritable display
Of festive sounds and smells and sights
Delightfully arrayed.

And you look snazzy dressed in black,
Your formal look for night,
I wish that you could see me now,
I really look a fright!

I'm running out of words to rhyme,
I'm slow to think a thought,
So I will end and wish you well
But tell me what you bought!

Happy Pink Saturday...

I have been on several cruises years ago when my husband was alive. We truly enjoyed them very much. Now, they are having so many problems, I have not taken one for a while. Looks like you enjoyed yours very much.

It was great fun seeing photos of your cruise. I think you definitely had more fun at sea than the last time I was on a ship. A three and a half hour whale watch turned into a nightmare of seasickness! I'm glad your trip turned out much better! It's so wonderful that you and your husband can enjoy traveling together. Some of our happiest times have been the summers we traveled throughout the US, camping in all of the national parks. In those days, a room with an indoor loo was a palace :) Happy Pink Saturday!

What a fun cruise! You look absolutely stunning in your black outfit BTW!! We went on three cruises in one two-year period -- the first was to celebrate my 50th birthday, so it has been years and years ago now. We thought it was a lot of fun. But then we bought an RV....

Your rhyming story lines are terrific.
