I sailed with a Princess.



On the high seas


and found in the Leonardo Da Vinci Dining Room




Leonardo.






And one of his sweet Putto.






We dined in the Botticelli Dining Room.







The ceiling.






A little bit like Las Vegas, you say?






More Marble on the Floors. 

And more than 3,000 Passengers!

No, we didn't sink.





Now you know where we sailed.






Do you?








Olé


Wishing you sunshine and happy colors every single day.

    1. Dear Theresa, Wish I could have sent some of that beautiful sunshine your way. We sailed the Baja coast of Mexico.

  2. Dear Gina - welcome back - lots of exciting images - the biggest clue for me is seeing Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera and that vibrant imported Spanish style of architecture.

    1. Dear Rosemary, It's always great to be back and at home. The Frida and Rivera painting was painted on the back of a wooden bench in a shopping area in Cabo San Lucas.

  3. Beautiful Gina and what great time is had in Mexico! I love the Boticelli Dining room is gorgeous and I love puttis anywhere. I have them in a pretty Capodimonte tray. Love Frida and that great door I think leads to their house, I mean Frida and Diego Rivera's.
    Hugs,

    1. Hello Fabby, I was surprised how beautiful this ship was. Didn't expect that. The Frida, et al painting, so different from the fine art of the ship was quite a contrast. I loved the earthiness and simplicity of this painting on the simple wooden bench. It fit Mexico to a tee.

  4. Gina, you've made me smile with this post with its colorful mixture of color, painting, design, on board and on shore.

    I am guessing that you might have some additional photographs to share? Meanwhile, I cannot tell you how good it was to get this sense of warmth, as NYC continues its flirtation with the freezing point.

    1. Dear Frances, The warmth and sun felt wonderful. Coming back to reality and below freezing weather was quite a shock. It had been unseasonably warm in our area before we left so I didn't expect it to be so cold. We should have stayed a little longer.

  5. So very happy to know the trip was a success - and so colorful, you must have really enjoyed it all so much dear Gina.
    Did you come home to snow? Look forward to some pics when you're settled in again.
    We just survived a treacherous ice storm - I was housebound for a week but quite enjoyed it as fortunately we didn't lose power.
    Hugs - welcome home.

    1. Dear Mary, Been thinking of you and have been wondering how you have managed with the really awful weather. So good to hear that you didn't lose power. It has turned very cold here and no snow is coming our way. It has been a very dry winter...hoping for moisture and a warming trend.

  6. Dear Gina,
    Art it is whether in the middle of an Alfalfa Field or on a Princess Cruise to colorful Mexico. How nice to have you back with welcome images of sunny skies.Just what I need on a day of freezing temperatures and icy roads.
    Happy greetings, Sieglinde

    1. Dear Sieglinde, I know what you mean. Wish it were a little warmer here, too.
      I was really surprised that sailing with 3,000 people was not a problem. It never felt crowded and the service and food was exceptional. My idea of sitting on the patio of our stateroom and enjoying the ocean breezes didn't work out...it made me seasick unless I concentrated on the distant horizon.

  7. Dear Gina,

    I'm looking forward to seeing what details of your Mexican vacation attracted your attention! I like the color scheme of the architecture of the 8th photo — I would have wanted to take that shot, too, with that great blue accent!

    1. Dear Mark, It was an insignificant little building, hiding in a corner of the Gulch in Puerto Vallarta. I thought it was a good example of how something so simple could be made so attractive with just the use of color and a few, but strong architectural details.
