The Pearl makes her debut

The NCL Pearl was floated out of the shipyard in Germany today ready to start it's sea trials. Glad to see it get ready, as we are on the Transatlantic voyage in December as it moves to it's base in Miami. Believe it or not, this is the first ship to have a 10-pin bowling alley fitted. The sea shouldn't make too much of a difference to my bowling scores anyway ;O)

Summers End

Well, I'm getting quite behind here. The Summers End festival was brill! Two full days of prog, with 12 bands and a great sound. Personal favourites were Darwin's Radio, White Willow, Strangefish, Flamborough Head and The Flower Kings. I have a bunch of photos to sort out and will post some of them here. I decided against carting the SLR down and travelled light, so I only had the teeny weeny Casio with me. It was nice for a change to just listen to a band and watch them, rather than through a lens.
