Prologue

The Black Knight and his gracious Queen are glad to present

the adventures on the seas by many pictures. After this prologue the following chapters: the ship, the battle of Naples, the battle of Malta, the battle of Palma de Majorca, the battle of Barcelona, the battle of Provence and the end.

During the cruise the Black Knight (see photo) had the possibility to run on the deck 11 (5 laps = 1 mile) but he could only make 2 workouts (1 hour each) because he got an injury on his big toe to cut a painful nail. Now the toe is black and swollen and in this condition it is impossible to train.
The places that we visited are wonderful and we had a lot of fun. However the Black Knight was kind and generous with the people who suddendly surrended. In the photo Villefranche, a little beautiful french town between Nice and Montecarlo.

But not all the people surrended and the Black Knight had to remind what could happen......

I want to thank all the warriors who defended the Black Kingdom during my absence. I will never forget.

  3. i believe your lovely fair lady schmoopie deserves her own trophy for enduring the black knight with matching black toe.
    i think it's a good thing you didn't do too many workouts. i suspect with the black knight running around the deck, there could be such a grip as you run that you adversely affect the steering of the ship.
