British Isles July '12

Kathy and I traveled to England, spending three nights in London before boarding the Caribbean Princess in Southampton, departing on a 12 day cruise within the British Isles. We stopped at ports in Ireland, Scotland, and England before a final day on the coast of France. Our option for the day was either Paris or Normandy Beaches. We chose Normandy Beaches because my Dad landed on Omaha Beach on D-Day during World War II. Before flying back to the States, we spent a couple of days at Portsmouth, England. Below are some pictures of our travels:
