It really is time I posted another blog - where do the days go to? I suppose its all the jollifications we've had over the Queen's Diamond Jubilee that has totally confused me as to what the day of the week it is! However, here are some photos from the last two stops on our cruise. I think they were my favourite places - Madeira was so lovely, full of flowers, and Cadiz had so much history and a beautiful old town. The Jacaranda trees were in bloom along Funchal's wide avenues. The cathedral had some delightful embellishments! The fruit and vegetable market was very colourful............ ........... as were the flowers. Scorpion fish in the fish market didn't attract me! I don't know if the photo will enlarge if you click on it, but they have very sharp teeth!! Our last port of call was Cadiz, in Spain. I loved it! We were berthed practically in the town, just disembark, go through the Port Gate and there we were! Cadiz skyline This is the Post Office! Bit grander than most of our own dear Royal Mail establishments! One of the many squares in the town There were lots of fountains around - I felt cooler just looking at them! Hope you've enjoyed looking at my holiday photos - it seems rather a long way away now.
