    July 1  Saw “Napoli, Brooklyn” by Meghan Kennedy at the Laura Pels Theatre. It is based upon a real-life disaster, the surprise staging of which, is mind shattering! However, the story line has a surfeit of themes added; religious brain-washing, the effect of a bullying husband and father and lesbian freedom. None of these is fully convincing in spite of the excellent acting of the cast.

Bermuda cruise

While we were in Bermuda we were lucky enough to see the visit of the Tall Ships to Hamilton. The celebrations started the day after we left but we did see some of them arrive–disappointingly under the power of their inboard motors, not under sail. I will put up some pictures of them in a separate post.

  1. If I wrote all the comments that are in my head, I would need a website all to myself. Suffice it to say, I do check your blog quite often, and continue to be in awe of your talents, your interests, and zest for living. Now, I think you might have a chance for a new career….report-photographer…on the Manhattan beat. Great work.
    I intend to send a personal email as soon as I have a chance to sit down. In the meantime, I have shared your POW experiences with my Florida friends at Lake Port Square..
    YOU are well-known now to everyone down there….and the interest in your article was overwhelming. I sent it to one of my friends…and she has shared it, and continues to do so.
    Now..Hope you have time away from blogging to check your emails! Mellicent

    • Mellicent. Thank you. I have just taken advantage of the economic climate to buy a new camera with a 300 mm lens. Look out for better pictures to come. Ben
