Ports and Docks

Standard

When on a cruise you soon learn to distinguish between docks and ports. You may “tie up” in a dock which is usually a working port. There are frequently many storage containers and cranes. Often the port will provide transport through the port to a port gate to prevent you from wandering around. As these ports are working areas they can appear very unattractive.

You may also “tie up” at a port terminal which is often more attractive. Port Terminals often have shops, duty free shopping opportunities and free WIFI often accompanied by cafes and relaxation areas.

Agadir, where we are docked today is most definitely a working port.

A little Up Cycling

Standard

I’ve been re-freshing a couple of old dining chairs for my cottage kitchen. One done and the other a work in progress. I am using a great “chalk like” paint called Frenchic Furniture paint which is lovely to work with. The paint requires little or no prep, covers well and is self levelling.

The house is in a permanent state of upheaval as I am constantly prepping crafts for a cruise or actually going away. I’m off to Norway soon and then Southampton to Cape Town in October. It’s all good fun and very exciting and don’t forget, I am working! Most of the work is before hand, deciding what crafts to offer, buying the materials and preparing the actual lessons. I love it!(and I’m seeing the World) More about my adventures at a later date.
