pardon me, mater, I'm orf to the harbour

I can't help it--every time I see harbor spelled with that 'extra u', I think of the Monty Python sketch, 'Flying Lessons'. I realize (realise?) that technically the 'u' is not 'extra', but it does make the place seem more posh, especially when there are things like this parked there.

The Norwegian Star

I also realize that this ship is mainly filled with tourists who would not usually be synonymous with 'posh'; and yet, they are on the ship, not I. Jerks.

And then there are things like this:


It's somewhat difficult to see, but this cabin has a shower (on the right) with a full length window facing out from the ship. I suppose this is so you can shower while watching the orcas. Don't tell me that's not posh!

There are photos of the more mundane aspects of the harbour and cruise ships added to the Vancouver photo album.

Pardon me, but I'm orf to play the grahnd piano.

Also, when you shower at night with a friend you can watch yourselves, er, showering. Not exactly highbrow, but fun.
