Daisy, After Refit…

I’ve had messages and emails from people reminding me that I promised to post photographs after the refit, something I have before now forgotten to do, so apologizes offered, here are the photographs: Galley I included a photo of the master cabin, not because she has had a refit, but because throughout the work she […]

Why Live Anywhere Else?
