Days 2 and 3

At Sea

April 1, 2018

Days 2 and 3 were spent at sea on the way to Aruba. Not much of interest on these lazy, relaxing days. Day 2 was Easter Sunday so we did some devotions. Danielle spend some time reading by the indoor pool and I started editing the pictures from the first day. Of course, we did find time to sample the wonderful food available on the ship. Sunday was formal night at dinner so we dressed up in our fancy clothes.

There are only a few pictures in this page. You will need to scroll down to see them.

Unlike the first day and night, we didn't see many ships. But we did see this barge and tugboat Sunday.

Photographers may wonder about the specs on these pictures. Both were taken with a Panasonic DC-FZ80 which has a 35mm equivalent zoom of 20 mm to 1200mm. Both were taken hand held.
Upper picture: f/5.6, 1/320 sec, ISO 80, zoom at 339mm.
Lower picture: f/4.2, 1/640 sec, ISO 80, zoom at 63mm.

This art work graces the Atrium. Danielle was wondering if she could make a stained glass work similar to it. Art work in Atrium
The cooks created several giant size Easter eggs to celebrate the day. Here are just a few of them. Easter eggs

On the third day of the cruize, the crew held egg dropping contest. Passengers needed to create some kind of contraption the keep an egg undamaged when dropped two decks. The winner would be the person whose undamaged egg came closest to the x marked on the floor inside the red circle. This egg was protected by a bunch of ballons and was dropped by the man in blue shirt and white shorts on the stairway just to the left of the pillar two decks up. It was undamaged but got caught on some ropes and never reached the floor. Egg dropping
