Day 328

Catching up to closer to the present day, here are a couple of Juncos from the LAST snowstorm, not today’s snowstorm… (1/500s f/8.0 ISO320 300mm Canon 7D) (1/500s f/8.0 ISO320 300mm 7D) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 327

The last morning on the cruise they try to hustle you off.  They had racks of suitcases in the hallways to run them off the ship as soon as we docked.  And while there wasn’t a wakeup call, it was hard to sleep from the noise.  Of course our cabin was right beside one of […]

Day 326

As we departed, it looked like the party was starting without us… (All photos Canon 7D) Another tropical night in the Puget Sound… And vertical… The Moon washout of the sea haze. It was nice on deck.   Looking aft. And so goes our final night aboard the MS Amsterdam. ~Curtis at sea on the […]

Day 325

Late afternoon, back at the boat…sea haze… (All photos Canon 7D) The Grand Princess, docked next to us, has one of those really neat covered bows on the promenade deck.  The Amsterdam, that we were on, has that part of the bow shut off, only to open it for special occasions. Hey!  What’s that?  Up […]

Day 324: Victoria, BC

Approaching Victoria you can see we aren’t the only cruise ship.  We docked just this side of that one. (All photos a combination of the Samsung Galaxy s5 and Nikon Coolpix P7100) Off in the distance was this impressive sleeping volcano…Mount Baker, perhaps? This is the Lido Deck and pool area open to the sunshine. […]

Day 323: Back to the Cruise!

The last full day of our Cruise! The Lido Deck with the pool and cafe is quiet if you get there early enough! (All photos down to the sunshine were taken on my Samsung Galaxy s5.) We ate at the buffet this morning.  Most of the second half of the cruise we had eaten in […]

Addendum to Day 310…

I was curious as to why the Whale Sharks from Day 310 were so far out of the tropics, so I emailed the Shark Research Institute, where Dailylife Daughter #2 had found the photo that looked like whale sharks… Hi Curtis, Our webmaster forward your request to us. The images posted on are of […]

Day 320: Something you don’t see every day…

A tree full of Cedar Waxwings…-12F by the River.  It was -18F during the night. (1/1000s f/8.0 ISO320 155mm Canon 7D) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>
