Alex and Eliana in one of the ship's lifeboats
Our group, posing on the gangway
Alex, pretending he is a cook in the ship's galley
Helping Eliana sign her name in the guestbook
Attempt at a cute cannon shot ("The sun's in my eyes, Mom!")
Eliana trying to ring the ship's bell. She was just barely too short to make it work, so Daddy had to help her.
The Cristo Rei statue from the back...
...and the front
View of the Rio Tejo and Lisbon on the other side. The bridge is the Ponte 25 de Abril, Lisbon's own "Golden Gate Bridge."
Happy birthday to me! On the way home, we stopped in Belém for yummy pasteis de Belém and coffee. These things are to die for, especially fresh out of the oven when the custard filling is still warm and the pastry is golden and flaky!
