Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Red

I have a short collection of fun photos for this challenge. The first two are from The Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia. Enjoy the pomp and color of the throne used by the Czars.

Also in St. Petersburg, we saw these two fun plastic statues on the floating restaurant where we had lunch:

On this same trip, we stopped in Helsinki, Finland and I had to take a photo of this fun Santa:

And finally, from the Falkland Islands, a wonderful red telephone booth:

Imagine Superman changing in this booth, or perhaps having it used by Dr. Who. Whatever you imagine, it has to be fun with this bright red color.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fun

Behold, some creative fun from one of the bartenders on our Baltic cruise aboard ms Koningsdam. Every year, Bacardi holds the Bacardi Cruise Competition. You can follow this link to see a Holland America Lines Blog entry for their 5 bartenders that made it to the final group of 25 contestants.

I love this challenge, so I try to work with a bartender on each cruise to come up with a drink that they can enter into the competition. On this cruise, the bartender was Ronald Atkins. We worked out two different drink recipes for him to consider entering.

As a thank you, Ronald presented me with a very unusual gift: a motorcycle built from corks, bottle tops, and various other bar related paraphernalia. Here are two views of this fun filled gift:

I am not giving away the two recipe’s in public, but you can email me at cwaugh212@icloud.com if you are interested.

Here is a quote from Wikipedia on the casualties of battle:

“During the battle, the Confederates suffered a total of nearly 2,600 casualties: 239 killed, 1,694 wounded and 673 missing. About half of the casualties were lost in the Army of Tennessee. The Union army lost 194 killed, 1,112 wounded, and 221 missing, for a total of 1,527 casualties. The wounded were treated at the house of John Harper, with 360 unknown confederates buried in a mass grave next to the Harper family cemetery.”


The Fotos are Fun but the battle was not. For more entries, follow this link to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge.
