Sailing on the Bering Sea

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

My Banner Image this day is found at the entrance to the Volendam Library.

Voltaire was a versatile and prolific writer, producing works in almost every literary form, including plays, poems, novels, essays and historical and scientific works. He wrote more than 20,000 letters and more than 2,000 books and pamphlets.[2] He was an outspoken advocate of civil liberties, despite the risk this placed him in under the strict censorship laws of the time. As a satirical polemicist, he frequently made use of his works to criticize intolerance, religious dogma and the French institutions of his day. (Courtesy of Wikipedia)

Yesterday we crossed the International Date Line and ‘jumped’ back into ‘yesterday’.

All hands (passengers) were presented with the following certificates.

Last evening as we dined in the Canaletto Dining room, it was lightly snowing outside our window.

This morning as I was greeted by Andi for my morning coffee he shared with me that this was the first he (and others of this crew) had ever seen snow. His dream is to “make snow angels” in Alaska. He also shared that he had spoken with his family back home in Indonesian and they were excited for him.

This what the Lido pool area looked like this morning.

I will close with an image of our current position, as we sail on the calm Bering Sea, shielded from the North Pacific by the Aleutian Chain, as we close in on our next port of Kodak.

  1. I hadn’t realized the ending of this cruise would take you so far north, Jack! What an awesome experience….at the perfect time of the year for those latitudes — winter still lingers….but her bite is gone! Never been to Kodiak. So looking forward to your observations!
