Viking Cruise crashes

CAMERA AND LENS DETAILS LISTED ON THIS BLOG POST IN THE RIGHT COLUMN

Our relaxing river cruise has ended before it hardly got started!  The Viking Sun, part of the Viking River Cruise line crashed into a structure on the side of the canal at 2:30 in the morning (news article).  Our cabin was below the water level, so we went topside where we took these pictures of the damage.  We were near Strasbourg, so eventually the boat was evacuated and we were taken to Strasbourg, which was the end of our river cruise.  I guess you have to be flexible when you travel, since you never know what is going to happen!!

South of France diet

My trainer wanted to know what I have been eating, since I have lost weight.  I told her Tony and I have been hanging out in the South of France (which really means we are picnicking in the back yard).  The trick is to eat special things and have them handy – like on this tray – so I don’t go hunting for less healthy alternatives.  She wanted a picture.  Now that’s what a diet should be like!
