I've Been Tagged!

Sarah at The Breathing Post tagged me.   This one isn't too hard, fun even.  I have to go to the 8th file folder in my photo department, choose the 8th photo to post, tell the story behind the photo, and then tag 8 friends.

So here's the story:  4 Years ago, my husband took me on a Royal Clipper Sailing cruise in the Caribbean for our 31st Wedding Anniversary.  We had a blast.  We absolutely loved the ship and would recommend it to anyone.  Our new resolve is to never sail on those biggie Carnival type cruise ships anymore, and  hold out for the more intimate and romantic sailing vessels of this fleet. 

On the first evening out from port, there was a big production of raising the sails, all 42 of them!  Obviously, this photo was taken right at the beginning.  Music, hors d'heurves, drinks and the ocean breezes made this a wonderful event.

Now the 8 friends: 
Southern Institute for Domestic Arts and Crafts
The Snyder 5
The Boob Nazi at How Could You Not?!
Carol at Songberries
Hiccups in Time

I will do the rest later, because company is coming for dinner and I have to run quickly or have a mess in the oven. 

Okay, dinner's over, the dishes are finally done and I can finish up on the eight friends part of my tag.

Things that I can't Say
Britt at God and the World and Me, and
Last-But-Not-Least:  Veronica at Of Mice and Ramen.

Have fun girls.  See you later in the week.

If I didn't get so seasick I would get on a boat and never get off. I love the ocean.
I love photo stories :) I could read about them all day.

What a great picture Rosemary! In NC, we have a similar ceremony in Beaufort. It is an awesome sight to see all those boats. Have a blessed evening!!

That is one awesome picture!! Not to mention, that would be a fun post. Now I'm anxious to see what my 8 and 8 are :)

Veronica Lee said...

Hi again Rosemary!! Sorry about the mistake of the 42 sails!! I've corrected it. I thought all sea vessels have sails and 42 sounded sooo awesome!!

Happy Wednesday!!! :)

Hey Rosemary :)
wow 300 000 women? I bet it was amazing!
I live in Germany, near Freiburg if you heard that.
Wow Canada sounds pretty cool, I've never been there but I want to go someday! Actually I really don't know a lot about Canada, just that the Olympics took place there, that you have the Niragara falls and that Marple Sirup is produced there :D
Maybe I'll learn some more about it from you!
I hope you'll excuse my bad english but sometimes I am struggling with my vocabulary...
I hope you have a great week!
