Our approach to New Orleans was really interesting, because it involved an 8-hour transit up the Mississippi River from the Gulf of Mexico starting around midnight. Sunrise occurred about an hour from our arrival, and I was up early to catch the morning light. This is an easy edit of one of my photos from that morning, although I have many more to go through once we get home. Needless to say, a quiet sail up the river in the early morning was quite special.
The first stop on our current cruise was the exotic Caribbean (not!) port of New Orleans. It was our first time there, and we did a bus tour, saw a concert at Preservation Hall and did LOTS of walking. It was interesting to visit, although as the day went on and the crowds got drunker, we had had enough. New Orleans…Check!
We’re headed to Tampa this morning for the last of our Cruise Trifecta.
I liked how the shapes of the canopy give the impression of a sunburst to the reflection in the glass.
These posts support a portion of the jogging track on Celebrity Beyond. Most people on board would never see them when they are red, because they are only lit at night. During the day they are white.
Mornings on the pool deck are my favorite times, because the only people out then are me and the deck attendants. 😉
This is for Jeff, who mentioned the fortunate placement of the sun in my earlier sunrise photo from Fort Walton Beach. I wish I could say I planned it! 😉
Currently back on land with a little time to look at photos, so I’ll be posting a few random frames. Here is an interesting scene from Sint Maarten a week or so ago.
