I've Been Trippin'~

Hello, Dear Ones! After getting my snaps ready from my trip ~ I wanted to share with you. You might want to get you a cookie and some tea as I have a few to show you. I've made mosaics so I wouldn't bore you too much!

Mr. Precious and I took a Mediterranean Cruise to Croatia, Turkey and Greece and ending up in Venice. We were gone for 17 days! We flew to Venice and boarded our ship. We sailed on the Splendour of the Seas which is one of Royal Carribean's smaller ships. Worked for me! :)

I feel so blessed as we got upgraded to a Grand Suite! Oh, it was so nice! King bed, three closets and lots of drawers, bathroom with double sinks and a bathtub, a little bar area and a wonderful deck!

Now I don't think I uploaded my snaps in the order we sailed so just bear with me! :)
This is Crete, Croatia! How lovely, isn't it? I'm still learning to snap with Reba the Rebel (my Canon camera) and had the wrong setting up so this snap looks rather blueish.

I'll shut up and let you look! :)

This is also Crete.

Ephesus, Turkey.

On the streets of Ephesus.

Crete, Greece...beautiful!

I know, I know...I'm showing you a little indoor market in Crete. But it was so cool!

Now please don't get sick here ~ these are skinned rabbits! I had to show you this ~ they left on the fuzzy rabbit's feet!

Athens, Greece.

All around Athens.

Bodrum, Turkey.

More of Bodrum. See those kitties? They were dock or pier kitties waiting for their dinner as the fishing boats pulled up. There were many more! :) No, they weren't trying to eat the peacock!

Touring oldenness in Bodrum. There's that peacock again! :)

Corfu, Turkey. We were fortunate a few times for our ship to pull up on 'our side' so I could get great snaps of the towns!

Oldenness in Corfu!

More Corfu.

Katokolan, Greece! Sad story. By the time we were allowed to get off the ship ~ it was pouring down rain. All tours and sightseeing was canceled. So we did the best we could and stayed on board and ate! :)

This was our last port of call and then the ship took us back to Venice, Italy, where we stayed for three days. I'll show you that later as I don't want to bore your tiny socks off! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you a little Note Song~

Beyond the Sea

Somewhere beyond the sea
somewhere waiting for me
my lover stands on golden sands
and watches the ships that go sailin'

Somewhere beyond the sea
she's there watching for me
If I could fly like birds on high
then straight to her arms
I'd go sailin'

It's far beyond the stars
it's near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
my heart will lead me there soon

We'll meet beyond the shore
we'll kiss just as before
Happy we'll be beyond the sea
and never again I'll go sailin'

I know beyond a doubt
my heart will lead me there soon
We'll meet (I know we'll meet) beyond the shore
We'll kiss just as before
Happy we'll be beyond the sea
and never again I'll go sailin'

no more sailin'
so long sailin'
bye bye sailin'...
move on out captain
