Total Eclipse : A pictorial review of the Tradewinds Transatlantic crossing 2015

Recommended Posts

We would love to see them . Who do you use and recommend ?

 

It is a mob called Photobook club, really easy to use and always having their books on sale, $50 instead of $250 for a 120 page book that is 28 by 33cm landscape. We have used another called Photobook Australia and also Minibox.com but I am sure there are plenty of similar ones in the US if these do not come up.:D

These guys sound good, will have to look out for them when I Do my next book. I too like doing the digital books to have a 'hard copy' reminder of our travels vs them being 'lost' on the PC!!

 

. I have an Apple iMac and been using iPhoto to create my picture books and then have Apple print them. Been very happy with the end result but good to have options!

 

Here's a link to my last book (PDF version) from our Sth Pacific cruise aboard Solstice!

We stopped at the moon gate for a kiss

Too bad that we didn't bring a stickie to capture a selfie under the moon gate . Do they even make them for DSLR's ?

We loved the sun's reflection , it looked like a nice sunset coming up .

The photos are easy to load up and arrange which is why I prefer them (apart from their sales).:D

Not sure if I would trust the stick not to break.

 

Great reflective shot.:D

After a quick bite at the buffet , we grabbed our internet devices and went back on shore for some "free" Wifi that we had seen advertised around the port . The internet time on the Eclipse had been anemic , costly and slow - at best . :p

 

We began our search at the now closed information booth

We had a nice walk around several hot spots , but never found free Wifi . We did see this beautiful sailboat though .

As a young man , I dreamed of sailing around the world one day on a boat like this . We also found the local dive boat , on the left .

We did find Wifi with the price of a beer

And another nice reflection on the ground .

Sleeping overnight in Bermuda was a real pleasure . It was quite and calm as we were tied off to the dock . But morning's light brought a few changes :

 

1. There was now a strong westerly breeze .

 

2. It was delightfully cool .

 

3 . We had some noisy , new neighbors moving in .

Just outside

The Pacific Princess had come to town !

 

 

IMG_4875_zps63kshcrw.jpg

 

Huffing and puffing , 2 tugs help guide her in . An older ship , she seemed to lack side thrusters .

 

 

IMG_4861_zps7uwyc1fp.jpg

 

 

It's nice to have a powerful friend to help .

Tied up properly and secure , it was a great show .

That's a newer incarnation. This is the "Love Boat". We went on our first cruise on her in January 1974.

Loving the pics and the memory of the Pacific Princess's new and old. If only Julie McCoy would be my cruise director (although in truth she wan't that great at her job).:cool:

I loved all the views of Bermuda harbor. Thanks for including the one showing the dive boat. :D

 

How great is it to sit on your balcony and watch other ships entering and leaving the port? I spent far more time than usual doing exactly that on our last cruise, and vowed to do it more in the future. :cool:

Neither was Isaac. He served about four drinks a week to the same two couples. Still, I didn't know that Princess re-used the "Pacific Princess" name!
