We love to cruise and this will show our travels. Of course there will also be other photos of non cruise holidays and anything else that takes my fancy.
All photos can be clicked to enlarge.

Baltics Cruise July/August 2014 - Russia pt.2, Peterhof Palace.
We had heard of all the gold and grandeur of the royal palaces of St. Peterburg but nothing really prepares you for the opulence.
Our first view of the Palace.
The Menager Fountain.
Looking down onto the Grand Cascade.
The statue of Samson wrestling with the jaws of a lion.
The Grand Cascade.
And again. There are 64 fountains and more than 200 bronze statues and other decorations.
A fountain in the lower garden.
There are also trick fountains in various places that spray the unwary visitor if they step on a stone that triggers it. These children must have found the stone at this fountain and are using it to cool down.
