Round-the-World Holiday, June 23 - July 28, 2003


Herculaneum had some fairly well-preserved mosaics, including this one from the public baths. I confess I'm thinking of using it as a knitting pattern.

Another mosaic

Another pretty mosaic.

Neptune and Amphitrite Mosaic

The houses have all been given names based on their defining characteristic, thus this was called the "House of Neptune and Amphitrite" after the beautiful mosaic shown here.


This awesome mosaic was from the floor of the public baths.

More Herculaneum

More Herculaneum. The Snook is way down at the far end.


I like mosaics. This one's from a bench.

Deer statues

This was called "The House of the Deer" because of these statues of deer being attacked by wolves. Yeah, just the thing I'd want in my garden.


Snookums on our way out of Herculaneum.
