    5 - 12 January Cruise to the southern Caribbean islands Tony and Jo will be visiting me in New York from August 28th

    Christmas Day 2019 With great luck I managed to get three tickets for the play, "Greater Clements" running at The Mitzi E Newhouse in Lincoln Center. A new play by Samuel D. Hunter, it is beautifully written and superbly acted (Especially by Judith Ivey who plays Maggie). The story line is harrowing and the audience, including we three, was spellbound by it. It is a play which I really want to see again!

Caribbean Cruise with S and C, (End)

George Town, Cayman Islands

At this port stop we all took a trip to a local beach.

In New York it was snowing!


from the first row of chairs one could dip one’s feet into the sparkling sea water . . . .


. . . . or jump right in! . . .


. . . . .


. . . .


. . . .


. . . . . while all this splashing around was going on, I relaxed in the shade of the beach umbrella, protecting my delicate skin . . . . and . . . .


. . . watching the competition go by . . .

During the rest of the vacation:

This is a selfie taken by Christine when she arrived back after a luminous deck party one night!


. . .this was a scene from her Party Bus . . . .


. . . as was this view . . .


And , finally. This is a picture of me looking for a local beer.

    Your photos bring back fond memories of a great trip. Boy, those beach shots of the sun, sand and warm water look inviting as I look out at the snow coming down here. We had a great time!

    • Thanks , Craig, I did enjoy our time together. And doubly thanks for the wartime ‘before and after’ pictures you sent me; I was struck by those of the southern coast of Britain– Sleepy Weymouth looks today exactly as it did 75 years ago, whereas skyscrapers and time-shares have sprouted in most of the rest of the world! Cheers! Ben
