Norene & Photography Holiday

You may have noticed that the PhotoActive blog has been quite for a while – well, for one thing all the Photography Holidays and Photography Courses I have been able to arrange for 2011 are now fully booked. Although there are still a couple of places available on the one day Photography Workshop on 15th October.

The other and much more important reason is that Norene has been unwell, and, until she undergoes an operation in late October, she is unable to do too much. For this reason we have come to the decision that she will not be coming to Menorca with us in September for the Photography Holiday.

All the photographers who come to Menorca on the Photography Holidays realise very quickly that it’s Norene who does the fixing and arranging – I just take the pictures.

However, the support we are getting from the Sintes family, who own the Hotel S’Algar – our base in Menorca – has been wonderful, and with this back-up and help I’m absolutely confident that the photography holiday will be its usual seamless success. Norene will be keeping her eye on things from a distance.

I’m really looking forward to getting back to Menorca – but it will feel very strange not having Norene there to keep us all in order. I’ll just have to drink her breakfast glass of cava myself.

To all those coming to Menorca for the Photography Holiday – see you in the sunshine later this month.

    Sorry to hear about Norene. We really enjoyed her company on the last holiday and we hope she will be restored to health really soon. And although we will miss Philip’s jolly company on this trip, we’re looking forward to the challenge of a new tutor with a different perspective on the beautiful island of Menorca.

    Hope Norene has a speedy recovery. Xx

  3. Thank you all so much for your thoughts. I have emailed you all individually to bring you up to date.

    It means a great deal to us both that so many of the photographers who come on the photography holidays & courses become lifelong friends.

    I’m so sorry to hear the news that Norene is poorly at the moment, wishing her all the very best for her operation, I think of you both a lot, and reminisce about the good time we had in May in Menorca, I know Norene wasn’t too well at the time, but she always managed to keep going, and I know it must’ve been a struggle for her to do so.
    I’m nursing my poorly Mum at the moment, but if she makes a speedy recovery from her operation which i’m sure she will, if you need any help in Menorca i can always fly out and give you a hand. I don’t mind at all.
    All the best
    Sue xx

    Kindest Regards,

    John & Yvonne.
