Ah well, all good things come to an end. Last Friday morning I was swimming with turtles and scuba-diving over a coral reef off the coast of Barbados. 24 hours later I was driving over snow covered moors on the way back from Manchester Airport. The photograph above shows our ship - the P&O liner Oceana - in Acapulco. The skies were blue and the breezes were warm throughout the entire holiday and a good and restful time was had by all. I will neither bore you nor depress you with endless photos of gorgeous holiday destinations - if you really want that I will be featuring a few of the photos I took whilst away on my Daily Photo Blog during the rest of February.
It is going to take a few days for things to get back to normal here - you guessed it, we haven't unpacked the cases yet - so I apologise in advance if, over the next few days, some of my posts are truncated and my comments are succinct. Whilst away, I made one or two decisions about future projects which might impact somewhat on the content of the blog over coming months : but more of that later.
Despite the cold, despite the snow, it is good to be back.
