Bedford Bear on P & O's Oceana January 2015

Bedford Bear on P & O's Oceana January 2015

Although we took Bedford Bear on a similar itinerary in November last year on Aurora, we left him on board a couple of times and so didn't see all the sights we did.

This time however, I was determined to take him with us each time we went ashore and although I didn't venture ashore in La Coruna, our fellow cruising mates Stan and May were happy to take Bedford out with them and take a few photos of him enjoying himself.

I will let the photos do the talking.

In the cabin

I introduced Bedford to Stan before they went ashore in La Coruna

Image

First stop Lisbon

Enjoying the ride on the Lisbon Metro

At the Castle

We didn't get off whilst in Agadir and neither did Stan and May so Bedford stayed on board with us.

Next stop Cadiz

Image


In Gibraltar, Bedford stayed in the coach whilst we visited the tunnels.

Image

I also kept him safe whilst we saw the monkeys, in case one of them took a fancy to him and snatched him away from us.

Here he is though once we left the coach and ventured into the main town.

Image

In La Coruna, Bedford helped some fellow passengers with their treasure hunt.

Here he is studying the map

Image

Thereafter, Stan and May took Bedofrd to the park and to see a couple of statues. He also admired some bears in a shop window.

It would seem that Bedford enjoyed his cruise on Oceana and we looked forward to taking him on our next cruise to the Scottish Isles and The Faroes in May.

Wot! You didn't on two occasions running get off in La Coruna!!!

Bedford seemed to have a much better time with you than he had with us!!

We forgot him everyday except one - we did manage to take him dolphin watching in Khasab! We will try better on Costa Favolosa!

Excuse me young Tom but we did get off in La Coruna in November. I remember it well because we got soaked!

I will sit him out in the garden Pete so that he will gradually acclimatise to the cold in Austria. ;)

Such a well travelled little bear- and twice on one ship shortly! I'm sure he behaved.....
