Yet another sunrise from my 2014 Carnival Fantasy Cruise.  On September 17 we were in Nassau.

My favorite mocktail on Crystal, The Lonely Mule. Thanks to Keith and Anne Marie for getting me the recipe. 🙂

My last sunrise from the Carnival Fantasy (although there will be one more from the trip).  On September 18 we were on the way back to Charleston from Nassau:

I do not have any sunrise photos from Septerber 19, so I'll post the last one from the trip where I sailed the Carnival Fantasy.  I spent a couple of additional days with my brother in Charleston, and stopped overnight on the way home in Rocky Mount, NC.  This was taken that last morning, September 22.

Both my attempts at circling the globe on land continuously have ended in pandemics but I have been completely around the world in segments.  My final link was Shanghai to Hong Kong which I completed on board MS Amsterdam.  I tot to that cruise on Amtrak and started on September 20.  This is the sun setting over the New River:

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.

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:

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:

September 24 is the middle of 3 consecutive days where I do not have a sunrise photo.  I am going to September 16 from my 2012 Crystal Symphony Transatlantic cruise.  It was a sea that day

This is the last of my string of 3 sunrise-less days and my penultimate photo from my 2012 Crystal Symphony Transatlantic.   On September 17 we should have visited Halifax but were so far delayed by storms leaving Iceland that we spent the day making up time.

Most of my remaining September sunrise photos will be from my 2017 Oosterdam cruise from Vancouver to San Diego.  We left Vancouver September 25 and arrived in Victoria September 26.  The weather was obviously not great as there was no furniture on the back deck:

It looks the same this morning ... but sun is hiding behind the clouds!

Another photo from my Oosterdam Pacific Coast cruise.  On September 27 we were on our way into Astoria, Oregon.  I believe I was on the starboard side near the bow when the sun came up:

Our first time sailing with Jon was on the crystal symphony September crossing from Dover to NYC city in 2007.  He brought his lovely wife and his son, Nat who is in this video.  NAT was 2 at that time!!!  It seems like yesterday.

 

it was a great cruise!!!  We’ve enjoyed all of our crystal cruise.  This sailing was our best cruise.
 

jim brochu, if you're reading this...it was wonderful to spend lots of time with you and the rest of the wonderful group of entertainers and incredible lecturers.  It was the start of many long term friendships!!! 🥰

Loved both the Courtenay videos. 

I do not have a September 28 sunrise photo in my archives.  When I was on the Oosterdam 3 years ago the outside decks were closed and the foghorn was sounding regularly.  I'm posting sunset from September 27; it was probably then the morning of September 28 Down Under:

All in unison: "I am the butler now!"

 

My privilege is not now to be pampered, fed and entertained on the Crystal ships - now it is to "butler" my feline friend Ms. Kierke (aka Kierkegaard) now honored in my profile photo. My thought is the viral pandemic might be a conspiracy by our four-legged friends to keep us home! If so, she is getting kinda bored with me, so maybe we will all get to travel again sooner rather than later. Can we hope?

My second sea day on the Oosterdam was at least somewhat better than the first with a recognizable sunrise:

I do not have a September 30 sunrise photo, so my last photo for September will be my last sunrise from my 2012 Crystal Symphony transatlantic.  It was September 18 and we were probably somewhere off the coast of New England:

I have an abundance of October sunrises and sunsets, covering at least 5 cruise lines and some other travel and only lack a couple of days, most of which will be covered by sunsets from the previous day.  The first is from a Crystal Symphony cruise the first week of October 2012,  On October 1 we explored the Saguenay River:
