HMS Victory

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all fine. Just got back from the UK, where we visited HRH the son and his beautiful K in Southampton. They’re settling down alright in their new flat. We took the train to Portsmouth to see the historic Dockyard. We went to see HMS Victory, which served as Vice Admiral Lord Nelson’s flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar. We spent the morning going in and out of the ship. We had a great time!

Travel theme: Cream

Ice-cream, ice-cream, I scream
Merrily, merrily, life is but a dream
Mangoes, purple yam, chocolate
I guess it all comes down to fate
Strawberry, vanilla, pineapple
I dream of nightshade and purple
Rocky road, some delight, you choose
From the tangled shroud of sleep, I rose
Always fun in the summer at the park
Met this guy, his name is Mark
Warm breeze, bright days by the lake
You find yourself at the bottom of the lake
Ice-cream, ice-cream, I scream
Merrily, merrily, life is but a dream!

For: Travel theme: Cream, The Dead Sea… aptly named, I’m afraid.

Maypole – raising

Hello everyone. Happy first of May. This morning we had the Maypole-raising in our town. There was a big crane that raised the Maypole, some speeches were made and the band played. People wore Lederhosen and Dirndl, drank beer and ate brezen. It was a lovely tradition.
