This was one of the most excellent holidays we've had. These photos are a record of that event. Right now, the photos here are those from my digital camera. I have many more 35mm pics which I need to scan. I'll get round to it when I have a few hours spare!

Click the thumbnails to view a larger image. The larger images are 640 x 480 pixel resolution - considerably reduced from the originals in order to keep the file size down around 20 - 40 Kby each. I do still have the original files at 1600 x 1200 pixel resolution (around 350Kby each). If you see any photos you'd like in higher resolution, let know & we'll figure out a way of doing it.
