Santa’s coming (or going) on a Royal Mail Ship

Picture by Barry Hubbard

A sunburned Santa lounges by the pool, and there’s a snowman watching over the sun deck.

Xmas RMS 250 Barry HubbardYes, it’s Christmas – even in mid-ocean.

The decorations on board the RMS St Helena were photographed by Barry Hubbard, who was returning to the island with his family on the run down from Ascension.

And Bruce Salt snapped the old ship as she slipped away below Half Tree Hollow on her Christmas voyage down to Cape Town.

It’s an unusual but striking view of the RMS. Bruce’s comment: “Dratted power lines in Tungi Town :-(”
