April Tapestry

During the month of April, we visited many places and shot many photos. We flew to New Orleans where we set sail for 22 days on a cruise ship. Along the way, we crossed through the Gulf of Mexico, across the Atlantic Ocean, and into the Mediterranean. The ship was the hotel and we stopped at nine ports where we spent the days on tours. It was a great trip with many good memories. I kept a daily log, but we were too busy to find time to post it. I will have to edit and see if there are any worthwhile thoughts that are noteworthy to post here. The ship's Wi-Fi was .40 per minute and I conserved my time to sending brief e-mails to family. Below is the second of two slide shows that I have completed at this point.


  1. What a beautiful slide show! Thanks, RJ. I wonder if David's knees could tolerate all that walking, though.

    1. We lost weight on that trip due to the amount of walking and climbing of stairs. We will have to do our travel while we are still up to the challenge physically. The tours are rated according to degree of physical difficulty so people know in advance if they can handle the physical stress. It was worth every minute and every dollar.

  2. That looked like an amazing trip! Thank you for sharing the photos and slide show. Glad you enjoyed the time away got to see such interesting places. Italy is my dream trip. Someday....

  3. Wow! That is really impressive. What a huge ship!!! I'm so glad you had such a great time in so many fabulous places.
