  1. Copper mentioned that yesterday. Every ship is required to get periodic hull inspections. Zaandam was actually due this spring ×and scheduled for Grand Bahama shipyard. Of course Covid had other ideas and it didn't happen. There was an opening at Botek now and when she emerges Zaandam will be good for roughly another 2 1/2 years. I asked him about Volendam but she got hers in 2019. Roy
  2. Am I correct it is Ocean Terminal? Roy
  3. There are a number of days where I have no sunrise photos and many of them happen to be from late September. Several of my next photos will be from my 2012 Crystal Symphony Transatlantic including this one from September 15. I assume this one was taken from my stateroom window as it was not a nice morning: Roy

  5. Thank you for the Daily Rich. I haven't played checkers in years and am not a fan of pot pie. I resemble that quote. Westerdam is at the terminal where I most frequently board QM2.

  6. I feel your pain (literally). I was on Queen Mary 2 and also got terminated in Fremantle, a week or two before you. I was booked on an overland tour from Durban to Cape Town with a stop at a safari. This photo was taken on a safari in 2008 as part of a Rovos Rail trip from Dar Es Salam to Cape Town. Roy
  7. Today's sunrise is from a Blount Cruise in 2006 on their smallest vessel, the Niagara Prince, from Rhode Island through the Champlain Canal to Burlington, Vermont. On September 22 we were approaching New York City from Long Island Sound: Roy

  10. I was just thinking--it was exactly 6 months ago today that I got home from Perth. It's been a LONG time since I've slept in the same bed for so long. Roy
  11. I turned my heat on a couple of days ago. It's currently 46F here. I know smoke from the fires out west are in the upper atmosphere and think they may be keeping our temperatures down. Roy
  12. While I have some sunrise photos from cruises on September 21, today I am posting one from Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. While the treks end around Labor Day, the training center there stayed open into the fall. This was taken September 21, 2007. Roy

  14. Thank you for the daily, Rich. We certainly need Peace and Gratitude, and Miniature Golf is a great form of relaxation. Love the quote and steak.

  15. I picture a webcam focused on the pulpit sending the service out and a monitor in the sanctuary with the images of the remote worshipers but wonder how it can really work. Roy
  16. Csn you post if you get some feedback on people who joined you via zoom. I'm wondering how it works in a setting with an in person service. I've experienced both live stream and Zoom worship and felt more like a participant rather than just a spectator when on Zoom. I'm wondering how it works in your setting. Roy
  17. It seems like quite a few Atlantic storms are weakening. Could smoke from the Western fires drifting across the Atlantic be a factor? Roy
  18. Just thinking--If I were on the Zuiderdam I would likely be crossing paths with Teddy in the next few days. Today I should have been in Havre St. Pierre. Roy
  19. I noticed that especially since I live in the Baltimore suburbs and grew up right outside Syracuse. Roy
