Our riverboat was docked just steps away from the main street of this charming village in Normandy - Les Andelys on The Seine River. There was an ancient ruined chateaux at the top of the hill and a fine old church, as well as some nice architecture and gardens. Not much else to see, but it was a lovely morning, and we enjoyed sailing out after lunch, with a glass of champagne in hand, and seeing the tiny villages and chalk cliffs that line this part of The Seine.

The river is very high right now, which you can see from the tree coming out of the water !

It never fails - every year I pack away all the Christmas decorations - probably about 8 boxes and bags; and as soon as my husband puts them away on the upper shelves in the garage, I find a few more things that got missed in the sweep....

We had a fantastic vantage point for the annual Newport Beach fireworks show. This sparkler occurred about 30 minutes before the real show. I was setting up my camera and getting the intervalometer ready and did a few long exposures in advance. Fireworks were erupting over the entire area and it was noisy and bright and exciting. Best 4th of July ever :)

We took an electronic cart ride through the old quarter in Hanoi, packed with tiny stalls, people everywhere, scooters zooming by, and I was snapping pictures continuously; finally it occurred to me that the best way to capture the immersive experience was to record a video. The voice in the background is the taped narrator, most of which we couldn't understand due to the accent.

Traffic is chaotic - there are 3 million scooters in this city of 7 million inhabitants. There are few stop signs or traffic lights, and they disobey them anyway... Drivers honk constantly, but no one takes offense. Pedestrians have to just step out into the roadway and keep moving - the traffic will flow around you like you're a rock in the stream.

Although we had gray skies for most of our cruise through the Inside Passage, the scenery from the ship was still mesmerizing and frequently breathtaking. Most of the passage is through fairly narrow channels with endless vistas of pristine forest and glacial rock on both sides.

Surprisingly few people were able to tear themselves away from the buffet (aka feeding trough) to spend much time on the deck, though.... Often when I made my laps around the promenade I would encounter only 20-30 people (on a ship with >2,000 guests)

The placement on the map is only approximate - there are no street signs out there....
