Another great trip report Kev and Tam. They always make me laugh. Still remember your comments about an extra big bone on the dinosaur at the T- Rex Restaurant

Then it was a choice of or so I decided to read the Bruce Springstein trip report next. Bet he was brilliant. We saw him in Paris back in the early eighties when he did his Tunnel of Love Tour. He was on for about 4 hours and stopped now and again to tell you stories about when he was growing up.
Those were the days

What a great trip report Tam & Kev, I've just read it in one go and I've thoroughly enjoyed it I've loved your photos and also the part where you surprise the girls with the Disney Dream cruise

Great to see that your alcohol intake is as good as ours Thanks for sharing .. and btw, what was the name of that bar in Port Canaveral that had the swingers 'do' ??

Just finished reading your trippie and I've spent a very happy evening laughing out loud at it. I love your humour and your family is beautiful.

Manbag Grumps? I don't think I own one. I've got the camcorder bag I carry around most places, but that's about all. However, I can't guarantee that somebody didn't plant one on me whilst I was under the influence of alcohol.

I saw a couple of shows on the Tunnel of Love tour. He's still playing near 4 hour shows. Got tickets for Wembley and Cardiff for the next leg of the Wrecking Ball tour. We really wanted to return to Spain to see him again as the crowds are so fantastic, but it appears that he's only going to play one date (Gijon) and we'll be at Glastonbury. Still, might try and fit in a cheeky little trip to Munich instead, never been there, so it seems like a good enough reason.

I think it was called 'Danglers', Mandy.

I read this in one seating yesterday. Now I really want to visit North Captiva. What a slice of heaven.

A very entertaining report as usual.
However I was a little disappointed you never made use of the said riding crop for another famous rendition of The Old Grey Mare.
