My last two posts about the cruise have focused on the experience and the flowers and birds. You’ve read that I had my reservations about cruising, and while I’m not sure that I’d do it again, I found much to enjoy.
The ship itself, the Norwegian Jade, also offered wonderful opportunities for photography and I rarely went anywhere without my camera!
Was it the contrast between the natural and the human made world?
Or the wonderful patterns of repetition.
Perhaps it was how vast the ship was,
especially when standing between the Jade and her sister ship, the Dawn.
I loved the comparison of this classic tall ship and the new cruise style ship.
I adored having a morning cup of coffee on the balcony, one of the absolute best things about the cruise!.
I even slept on that balcony one night after dragging out a blanket and pillow, and laying on the deck. The sea, the wind, the stars … it was an amazing thing to be in middle of the Caribbean Sea, and to feel so close to nature and to feel her power.
What a gift!
