It's the end of an era – our very last Photography Holiday in Menorca has come to a end – and what a finale it was – a week full of fun and photography.
Norene and Philip Dunn (back left) with the final group of photographers before they set off to explore the wonders of La Mola in Menorca – they were a bit more bedraggled at the end of the day
The final night of the holiday was a very emotional affair for Norene and me, especially when the photographers presented us with a beautiful framed watercolour of Menorca – the perfect present for us in our new home in Shropshire. It will have pride of place beneath the old oak beams of this very English house.
As if this was not enough, we were given an even more emotionally-charged gift – a book of words and photographs 'Norene and Philip – the Menorca Years'. I confess there were a few tears as we turned the pages to see a photographic story of our 10 years of running the hoidays. Photogapher Cathy Robertson had contacted several photogaphers who have been with us in the past to compile a most delightful record of memories.
Thank you Cathy and all the others who helped put this beautiful book together – it is wonderful and has touched our hearts.
THANK YOU ALL
Norene and I would like to thank all the photogaphers who have joined us in Menorca over the past 10 years to share our love of this wonderful island. It has been a wonderful experience with friends. It would be wrong to single out anyone in particular, but we have been specially endebted to Ken Terry for his tremendous friendship and support when Norene was so ill. THANK YOU EVERYONE – please keep in touch. As soon as I get a little time and the website is refreshed I will get the blog going again.
SO WHAT NEXT?
Norene and I have decided to concentrate on activities a little nearer our new home in England. It has been a difficult decision, but we believe the time is right. First we must sort out the new house – there is much to do as it has been very neglected. I will change and update the PhotoActive website to concentrate on One-To-One photography tuition and maybe occassional Photography Weekends and Photography Workshops in Shropshire.
