Vacation Journal: Day 7

Day seven was our last day at sea and our last day of vacation. We have been sailing north / north west since we left Cozumel last night, sailing towards the end of this wonderful week. I had a pleasant sleep-in to 0745 (something is wrong with that being a sleep-in on vacation), followed by... Continue Reading →

Into the deep blue ocean

Into the deep blue ocean Sailing across the world Starting to see peaceful beauty Drifting into a place of dreams   Far enough away from everything Surrounded by nothing but Diamonds glittering on the Crest of meditative waves  

Vacation Journal: Day 5 – Belize

Today was wonderful, simply splendid. A little hurried to start the morning as we gave ourselves only 1 hour and 15 minutes to get ready, have breakfast & get gone. No worries though, we made it, even if we did abandon breakfast halfway through. Belize has a shallow bay meaning the ship has to anchor... Continue Reading →

Vacation Journal: Day 4

Vacation Journal: Day 4 – Honduras After 3 days at sea we have arrived at our first of 3 ports of call. Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Honduras. A tropical paradise, so perfect it is impossible not to see how artificial it is. We woke up in port, our port side room providing the perfect vantage point for the... Continue Reading →

Casino

  I do not like the casino Something deep inside me is repulsed by it I don’t know if it is the stale smoke The desperate souls blindly giving their money In the hope that today is their lucky day   It could be that I can do math & understand odds. Maybe it is... Continue Reading →

Vacation Journal: Day 3

  I just returned from a 45 minute march around the promenade. The best feature of this boat bar none. It is an outdoor wooden floored deck that circle the entire ship. I walked at a normal pace for me, which is apparently 5 times faster than anyone else onboard that was out walking. As... Continue Reading →

People watching

One of the main pass times on a cruise ship, whether you admit it or not, is people watching. I started the week with a desire to observe & take in as much as possible. As time went on though I grew weary of people, as usual, & drifted off into thoughts & efforts that... Continue Reading →

Wake

  Setting out with such purpose Fury & anger, dispersed By this enormous alien presence Against the grain, change the world   Then, as you fade into nothingness Your purpose forgotten Consumed by the wide expanse Life, order & peace resume Normal service   And you, you are forgotten As though your brief existence never...

Vacation Journal: Day 2

Vacation Journal Day 2 The day started much earlier than I had hoped for, I was woken up before sunrise by the energizer bunny. She reminded me of how I had said we would watch the sunrise on the first morning, although it was ok if I wanted to go back to sleep. I begrudgingly... Continue Reading →

Vacation Journal: Day 1

We left home fairly early, around 07:30 to set off on the 5+ hour drive south to Galveston. The drive was pretty uneventful, Houston drivers are as bad as always. We stopped at Bucky Beaver's for jerky, because, well, that’s what you do in Texas. Once we made it onto the ship we dumped our... Continue Reading →
