My Favorite Things – Maritime Mysteries

Being primarily land-bound creatures, it’s easy to forget that another world exists at sea.   Here is a collection of my favorite pictures taken last week at sea aboard the Caribbean Princess cruise ship.

Upon our departure, Hurricane Irene blanketed the Statue of Liberty…

And enveloped Governor’s Island and lower Manhattan in a green haze.  Now you see it…

Now you don’t!

Two days later, sailing away from Canada, this lighthouse looked like a mirage…

And on calmer seas in Bar Harbor, Maine, a schooner slipped out of the harbor.

From our balcony onboard the cruise ship, the passing sailboats were gossamer toys…

The Newport, RI mansions took on an enchanted air…

And I watched this lone sailboat disappear into the sunset.

    • Ok, I will; although the next ones are going to be a special showing just for family (that’s you!)

      Love, J

    • Thanks, Helen! I spent the evening tonight down in the meat packing district enjoying “Fashion Night Out.” Got some interesting pictures which I’ll be posting soon…and tomorrow I’m headed to Lincoln Center for Year 2 of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week photo snapping. God, has a year already gone by?!

      Ciao –
