IPhriday Photo Challenge: More Food!!!

Since I’ve been baking, cooking, wrapping, and shopping a lot lately I thought I should share some more food photos to keep my energy up! You won’t go hungry on a cruise that’s for sure! There were four specialty restaurants onboard the Regent Explorer and we were served like kings and queens! Take a look for yourselves! First a word about the dishes, as in plates…….. they were all made by Versace and I had to laugh, because just like the good plates at my house, we look at the fine tableware, but we don’t eat off of it. All the beautiful dishware was whisked off the table after we ordered our meals and our food was served on everyday white china! Let’s stroll through the restaurants!

It’s hard to imagine, but those lampshades are about three feet wide!!!!

These big turning, prayer wheels were outside the Pacific Rim Restaurant.

The food was excellent and so was the presentation……

Even the daily fresh flowers matched the themes of the restaurants…….

When at sea, if it’s Sunday, there’s a Sunday Brunch! Oh, what to choose!

Everyday after returning from our excursions we had a routine…….. go to the Coffee Bar for a Latte, Mocha, Iced Drink or nibbles. Following that we made our way to the Observation Lounge to play Trivia while feasting at High Tea! Everyday there was a new “theme” for High Tea!

And then it would be time to go dress for dinner! What a life! I didn’t show all the food or all the restaurants because I was taking all these photos with my cell phone and was trying to be discreet! Ha Ha! So feel free to show your your IPhriday photos! All you need to do is use your cell phone for the photography!

The IPhriday Photo Challenge is a weekly feature allowing IPhone lovers (or any cell phone photographer) to come together to admire and share their favorite cellphone photos from around the world.  Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own IPhriday post each week.  Each Month there will be a different Theme! December’s Theme is Food or Christmas! What are you going to share this month?
