Hi, It’s Me Again…

Travel

A new year brings new ideas and resolutions so I guess you might be able to figure out what I’ve been thinking about going into the 2017.

I have a bunch of photos sitting in my quick collection in Lightroom so I figured I’d resurrect the blog and let you know what’s been going on. So, here we go…………

In my last post I talked about our cruise to Bermuda, mainly the embarkation and then the disembarkation. I didn’t show anything from beautiful Bermuda. Well, below are some shots from the beautiful island in the Atlantic. If you’ve never been….. go!

Horse Bay is the quintessential tourist beach on the island. I will tell you that going to the far north end of the beach provides the best experience of this gorgeous place……..

Traveling a bit north and you end up in this breathtaking area called Warwick Long Bay. Ranked as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and you can see why……

Finally, we come to the spot on the south end of Horseshoe Bay beach called Port Royal Cove. Wow, this place is amazing….

Everything you’ve heard or seen doesn’t do it the justice of being there. A place that has to be seen in person.

Thanks for stopping by, again. I look forward to hearing from you this year.

From There to Here…

This past June we had the great pleasure of cruising aboard the Norwegian Breakaway from New York City to Bermuda. I first cruised 30+ years ago and didn’t recall the experience of sailing in and out of New York Harbor from that trip so I made it a point to get up early during our return to capture the sights.

As I stood near the bow of the ship I tried to place myself as one of the 12 million immigrants that arrived in America many years ago. What an experience it must have been.

I hope these pictures give you an idea of this experience……

Here we are approaching the Verrazzano Bridge. Named after the ltalian explorer who declared this area a lake in the early 1500’s.

Here our 17 story cruise ship narrowly makes it under the said named bridge…

No need to explain this gorgeous sight…

As we cruise towards the dock we pass Jersey City to our west and see the last of our sights from the cruise….

Our vacation will terminate at the ships terminal on pier 88.
