I hope this where am I is not too easy.  It is a place I have visited on both Holland America and Crystal.

My immediate thought was the Falklands. Then I had doubts. But they say to always go with your first thought! 🤩

Whilst I believe Patty is the uncontested winner in these games, let’s see her take a stab at Anne’s photo in post #203!  It’s been driving me crazy ever since Anne posted it! 

 

Show us your stuff, Patty!

No clue, Brian. I assume those are changing rooms at a beach. All the movie star names that I can read are American. Don't know, however, if it's actually in the US. Not sure where all Anne has been in the US. First thought would be LA or Miami, but thinking, maybe, somewhere on Cape Cod. I think I remember that Anne has done a New England/Canada cruise. Or not!!

No it isn’t.  You wouldn’t visit this place on a Mediterranean cruise...

Finally, albeit with the aid of Google!!!!  Yes, it is the Promenade des Planches in Deauville where they hold an American Film Festival every September and the beach huts are named after actors and directors who have attended in person... Most guests tend to visit the Normandy landing beaches when the ships port call in Honfleur but I toured the Calvados coast and a couple of distilleries along the way...

Another great place to visit from Honfleur is Giverny.

 

Normandy is good to visit from Cherbourg, also.

Since it's happy hour (again?  already?) in my corner of the world right now, how about "ID That Cocktail"?  🥴  This one should be pretty easy because the garnish is less common.

Well, since the photo is cropped, we have a rectangular piece of pink.

 

Don't tell me they garnished a drink with some sashimi from Umi?

 

🙂

If they had one, I’m sure I’d order it!  🤤  Yes, it’s the only cocktail on Crystal’s menu the past few years that I can think of off the top of my head (but I could be wrong) that’s garnished with a wedge of pink, even if not tuna.

Pink grapefruit comes to mind, and I know there are a number of cocktails in the menu that involve grapefruit juice.  Being on a statin prescription, I can't have grapefruit - so those cocktails have never registered with me, other than something to pass over when I'm reading the menu.

Ah well, as long as we're talking colors and fruit.

 

Our neighbor just gave an orange seedless watermelon (it's a CSA thing, and yes, I had to search on CSA myself, and it's not the Confederate States of America one.)

 

Anyway, I knew there were watermelons, I knew there were seedless ones, but I did not know there are orange seedless watermelons.  Supposed to be sweeter than the red variety.

 

We shall see.  It's uncut and residing in the cellar (OK, basement.)  It's a little intimidating.  If I don't post again, call the watermelon police.  Tell them to look in the basement.

I'm pretty sure the garnish is pink grapefruit and I'm also pretty sure it is a gin based cocktail, however, as a non-gin drinker it isn't on my radar and its name isn't on the tip of my tongue!!!

Just finished off my CSA juicilicious red seeded watermelon tonight. It lasted a whole week as my dessert every night.  I have had those orange seedless ones before, they are as tasty as advertised.

 

Hope you get along with yours and come back to tell us all the tale...

Some sunrises are spectacular and some are more subdued.  This is the last one from the Westerdam, 2 years ago as we were approaching Vancouver, before continuing on to San Francisco and the Symphony:

I took this photo two years ago today, August 5, 2018. It’s provided chuckles ever since. 

 

Even though it was a Sunday, the offer of “free weekend parking” wasn’t bringing out the locals to cash in on the deal. From our wandering around town that day, it didn’t seem apparent that parking is ever a serious problem here. But I always say never never pass up an opportunity when it’s staring you in the face! 👌

 

Anyone want to take a stab at the location?

Am I seeing the top of a mountain over the roof? (Not the clouds on the right, next to the air conditioner or whatever.) It's August. Those two things together scream Alaska. Guessing Juneau.
