Sincemessage file size on theAbe Forumis limited to 100K make sure to create smaller file size versions of your photos. Most digital camera images are well over one Megabyte(1,000K) and must be shrunk down before you canpost them here.
I'll be back to post some that I took aboard ship as soon as I do that.

Why an Abe cruise is so much fun...
First off, your new abode is much more impressive than the old 3 bd 2 ba fixer upper back home.

The Office is a place you love to hang out.

You find unusual friends on you bed when you get back from trooping around on shore.
06-12-2008, 09:21 PM
Some of the staterooms have a real unusual atmosphere.
06-12-2008, 09:22 PM
Your internet cafe has an ocean view.
06-12-2008, 09:23 PM
The local guides are friendly.
06-12-2008, 09:26 PM
And dinnertime can be a real Abe-fest - with over a hundred Abe heads chowing down, talking up a storm and having a great time mixing two passions at once - food and philosophy.

More dinnertime fun:

Here is Simon's wife Julie having a laugh with Gabriel and Effie.

Jerry and Esther host a nice cocktail party for the Abraham group. In this shot, a couple from Mexico (former Canadians) enjoy their wine.
Well, since I didn't ask these nice folks first if they wanted to be stars on the ABe Forum I have decided to replace them for the time being with another shot.
Ever wonder what happens tothat luggage you put out in the hallwaythe night before the cruise ends? Wonder no more...

More stuff to do on a cruise: Take in a show - in this case, a singing contest. You might recognize the backs of the heads of the two people in front of the camera.
dance of joy

Thank you, Mr. Multiverse! I love seeing those. They take me back to my cruise experience and forward to new ones!
I too am a former Canadian turned Aber! ::LOL
Love and giggles,

Off board ship, you can find other reasons to go on an Abe Cruise:
Such as seeing a bus full of Abers, actually 11 busfulls of Abers, chugging around in Tunisia.

Or a coke can that looks like this?
06-13-2008, 12:39 AM
Andy, these are fantastic!! Thank you - and MORE please!!
06-13-2008, 04:59 PM
One last reason to go on an Abe cruise, or any cruise for that matter: to look for things to appreciate and other ways to live.
What if this were your window on the world?
06-13-2008, 05:00 PM
And this is what your window looked out on...
06-13-2008, 05:01 PM
And your little town looked like this...
06-13-2008, 05:02 PM
and you had lunch everyday here...
06-13-2008, 05:03 PM
and when you got hot you went swimming here...
06-13-2008, 05:05 PM
and when you wanted to get away you got into your boat and took a ride....
06-13-2008, 05:10 PM
See you on the HIGH seas with Abe!
06-13-2008, 08:31 PM
amazing.i'm salivating looking forward to my cruise next year steve::cool

Andy, these pictures are amazing! You and David should get together and publish a travel photo book. Was that cafe in Sorrento? And the yachts... Monte Carlo?
06-14-2008, 05:27 AM
... for sharing these! It looks like worlds of fun! I look forward to my turn::boatwave WOO HOO!
06-15-2008, 11:53 PM
Yep, the yachts were in Monte Carlo. The cafe was in Nice.
I have found that you can make great photo books using the ShutterFly site. They look very professional and the quality of the pictures is great. Did you recognize yourself in that picture from the singing contest?
Andy these pictures are fantastic! Excuse me while I ...
Thanks so much for posting them.
06-16-2008, 03:14 PM
Ohhhh looks heavenly!! More please. ::rocketWe LOVE them.aniheart
06-16-2008, 05:12 PM
Andy, I DID recognize the backs of David's and my heads.. and I gotta say... we both need a haircut! :exactly:But that sure didn't spoil the fun of that evening. The girl that won the contest had such a great voice I wished we were there for a concert of just her singing!! Although, Brett, our Aber contestant was very entertaining - hamming it up with Julie Barr!
Aaaahhhh... the fun... that's the whole point isn't it?? And FUN IT WAS!!! ::grapevine::grapevine::grapevine::grapevine::grap evine

One last picture from me - this is a pin that they give out to each Abe participant on the cruise. Some folks have 6 or 7 of these! People wear them on their shirt or hat when they are out and about and it let's you know they are a fellow Aber.
06-18-2008, 02:41 PM
oooh, cool pin!!! The pics look great, I can just feel what a fantastic time you all had! Will be on the next cruise for sure. Does anyone know if they are planning another one for next year????
06-18-2008, 02:45 PM

I'm glad you liked the photos - I probably took about 1,000 altogether! Thanks for this post - it made me go back and look at the pictures again and brought out some great memories.
12-01-2008, 06:15 PM
Love your handle - makes me feel like I am communicating with someone from far away. If you are like me you have many cruises awaiting in your VE. At the moment I am loving the ride on my stream that is taking me to them with perfect timing.
