... and on that walk it became apparent that we’d have lots of company in the kind of walking tour that Cathy and I like to do. There were 4 ships in port today and a fairly small old town to explore, so we anticipated crowds. We decided to walk around the outside of the walls of the old town to the far side and work our way back to the ship, hoping that most people would start their tour at the beginning and we’d avoid the crowds. This worked very well in the ...

We have some free time in at Petersburg today so that will be interesting... Wow we had a sunny day in ...

The military parade was impressive, but it was the veteran’s parade that made the day special. It was really something to watch the WWII veterans walk (or ride in cars) by and people cheered and ran out to give them flowers. All day veterans walked around with ...

    A basic Sokos Hotel with comfortable rooms. The breakfast buffet isn't anything to write home about, though.
