"Gargoyles & Graffiti"chronicles architectural elements that I find interesting or unique in my travels. Gargoyles are my passion, but today graffiti (which I hate but am learning to love as it is everywhere) is as much a part of architecture as the gargoyles and decorative railings that thrill me.

Towel Animals on Holland America

Elephant towel animal on the Holland America Noordam
Now that I have locked my cruise in on NCL, I am getting nostalgic about the wonderful cruises I've had on Holland America and all the things I will miss. I only hope NCL can be half as good as HAL. One thing I love about HAL are the wonderful towel animals. Doesn't matter which ship I am on, whether the Eurodam or the Noordam, the cabin stewards make these great towel animals that we come back to after dinner.

The above two towel monkeys look a bit alike, but note the difference. Both hang from a hanger, but the first monkey has his legs really stretched out and monkey #2 almost looks like he is sitting or swinging with his legs up. Monkey #1 has a long face, where monkey #2 almost looks like his towel tongue is hanging out.

Which do you like better?
