Summer 2012 Newsletter

I do hope you have had a great summer. Now that September is upon us, I thought it was time to say hullo, and give you a brief update on how things are in the Snowdon household.

As always, our winter cruise was just great, and it was nice sailing once again with Holland America. Our cabin allocation for the January 2013 cruise is all used up. Those who have signed up have realized substantial savings, as the cruises lines prices on that sailing have really jumped up.

In the middle of April Denise and I sailed from Ft. Lauderdale to Rome, and then spent a few days in Milan, visiting Como, and also Lugano in Switzerland. It brought back a lot of memories for me, as I had not been there since I went on a school trip from Scotland in the middle of the last century !!!!!

Fergus was a bit of a rainy affair, but we did manage to complete the tattoo in spite of the weather.

August was a rather special month for Denise and I, as we saw the birth of two new grandsons within the space of three days. Xavier Hugh Snowdon arrived on August 9th, and on August 12th Wallace Anton Bajor arrived. We joke that it was like having twins born into the family, except they don’t live in the same house! Fortunately, they do live fairly close to each other, but yours truly is doing a lot of driving these days! That brings the grand total to six grandchildren, four boys and two girls.

I still get lots of calls from folks asking me about doing a tour of Scotland. Well next year we are doing a 12 night British Isles cruise on the Caribbean Princess. We will be visiting Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Orkney in Scotland. In Ireland our ports of call are Belfast, Dublin and Cork, finishing up with a stop in Guernsey in the Channel islands.

An added bonus is the fact that our first port of call will be Le Havre, in France on June 6th, 2013, the 69th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy. Passengers can then have the opportunity to visit the Juno Beach Museum, which is of special interest to Canadians. You can see all the details of the cruise on our web site, www.denissnowdon.com, and looking under the cruise link.

The show continues to roll along, and I do thank all of you for your continued support. Again, you can always catch up on previous shows by having a listen via the podcast link.

Enjoy the rest of the nice weather, and stay healthy.

Denis
