Happy days

April 30, 2014

Bloggers cruiseThe theme of this week’s Gallery is ‘happy’. And one of my favourite photos from the past 18 months has to be this one of the Gallery owner herself, Tara Lara*, along with our esteemed friend, Laura Chora* (*these may not be their actual second names).

I can’t even remember who took this photo, and they must have had pretty bad camera shake or too much Champagne (possibly even a Strawberry Daiquiri) because it’s VERY fuzzy if you look too closely, but who cares? What really matters is the moment. The photo was taken last February in the Caribbean, on board our cruise ship, Liberty of the Seas, and we were all glammed up because it was formal night.

What I really love about this photo, though, is the expression of total joy (possibly hysteria) on Tara’s face. Laura and I are trying to look vaguely sensible (or maybe we’ve simply had too much to drink) and Tara is laughing her head off.

It’s incredible to think, really, that if I hadn’t started blogging I would never have made such fantastic blogging friends. And we would never have been invited on that cruise together, which turned out to be an absolutely unforgettable experience. We’ll be going on separate cruises with our families this year but we’ll always have the memories of this trip. Happy days indeed.

    Aww Lizbeth, such happy happy memories. I think I’m probably laughing because I have my hand on Laura’s leg and I’m doing something I shouldn’t . . .
