"CHRIST OF THE DEEP & CHURCHES - On October 22nd 1961, the Costa Line cruise ship Bianca C, under the command of Captain Francisco Crevaco, got on fire and ended at the bottom of the sea. The rescue operation took some two hours to complete and Costa Lines offered a monument to thank people of Grenada for the help. They should probably do the same to the people of Isola del Giglio..."

Hi Folks! Hope you are having a great holiday season, rain or shine, depending of the hemisphere...
As expected, 2013 has been, up to now, worse than 2012, on the economy side... But today is a special day for my wife and me, so let’s forget and dive into the Caribbean... Enjoy the blues of Grenada, and have a great vacation, if you can manage!!
All the best!

Hi Gil!

I missed seeing your posts! I'm glad you are back. Did you know I moved form New York to Colorado? My husband and I wanted to be close to our grandchildren.

Grenada looks hot and steamy but beautiful! I looked back on a few of your posts to see what else I missed.

Hi Gil, great to see you are on the road again!
I love the shots of the town & the cozy looking harbor. The shots from your ship are really stunning, and so is the sunset!

I'm sorry to hear things are worse for you and for many others as the whole world grows more tense. However, it's reassuring to discover you posting again, and I enjoyed the tour of Grenada. It's been a mystery to me since we invaded.

I hope things improve for you and for all.

Hi Gil!
Nice to see you again!
I can imagine life is not easy right now. We're having strong political bebate how to deal, survive in EU crisis...more and more national debt or not etc. Traditional industry is in big trouble, social costs are getting higher and higher....
But we had a warm, even hot, long and sunny summer.
Take care!

Dear Gill,
Wonderful captures. This time it is Grenada, I remember as a boy collecting postal stamps. For quite some time I too was distancing myself from the Computer due to problems I have recently developed in my eyes. Hopefully they will be alright in a month or so.

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

such wonderful photos. I'm always amazed at the sight of a ship looming over the skyline!

Merry X-mas, Gil and... a happy new 2014 in a few days.
