SWF>>>>Bermuda sunrise

For my Skywatch Friday I have a few sunrise photos from our ship the Enchantment of the Seas docked in Bermuda. I also included some shots of Bermuda and the beautiful sky.


This moody looking sky greeted us as we made our way to the top deck to watch the sunrise.


This was the second day in Bermuda so we up early and were excited about seeing more of Bermuda. We only had till 1:30 in afternoon to see and do as much as we could fit in the small amount of time we had left in Bermuda. 

We were happy to see the sun rising up over the other end of the island.





After watching the sunrise, we rushed off for breakfast. You can not go hungry while on a cruise ship. They have plenty of food.  


If we can we usually try to arrange our own tour and excursions. We usually meet great local people and pay a lot less for the tour. By the way I have two unused two day bus tickets for Bermuda, anyone interested? My son and friend did not use their bus passes. Our plans were to take the bus to the beach to hang out for awhile and then go back to the dockyard for some shopping.


By the time we made our way off the ship, took the bus to Horseshoe Beach this is what the sky looked like.







Back on the ship, we looked back at the view of the Dockyard and the shopping mall.



Here is our view from the back our of ship as we were leaving the dock.

SWF>>>>Sunset on the bay

For my Skywatch Friday I have sunset photos from our cruise to Bermuda. We enjoyed the sunset on the Chesapeake Bay on the first night of the cruise from Baltimore to Bermuda.




The Cheseapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the United States and approximately 200 miles long. It lies off the Atlantic Ocean surrounded by Maryland and Virginia. Noted for its beauty it does have environmental issues like over fishing and crabbing.






I hope you enjoyed my sunset on the Chesapeake Bay and

Today's Flowers

This is my post for  Today's Flowers

During our stop in Bermuda we took a private guided tour of the island. We visited many of the highlights of Bermuda. Our guide showed us a little extra, one extra stop was a privately owned garden. The pond and waterlilies were beautiful.


I have always loved waterlilies and the yellow ones are just gorgeous.

I was trying to capture the dragonfly on the pink waterlily one below.


The pond was design like a map of Bermuda... A  very cool idea and a neat pond.  Bermuda has a lot of islands connected by bridges.

I hope you enjoyed my post for Today's Flowers please click on the link to see many more beautiful flowers.
Thanks to the hosting group of Santili, Denise, Pupo and Sandy. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you take the time to enjoy the flowers and that your Sunday is wonderful.

SWF..........Cruising to Bermuda

For my Skywatch Friday I have some shots from our cruise to Bermuda from Baltimore this past week. It was a great vacation for hubby and I and my son and his friend. The first shots I have are of our ship the Enchantment of the Seas going under the Key Bridge and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge here in Maryland.


The Key Bridge
It looks so close! I liked looking at the pretty and puffy white clouds thru the bridge on this shot below


The second bridge over the Chespeake bay is the double span of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.


This shot shows the east bound bridge along side the west bound bridge. The sky was perfect for cruising.



This shot below shows the ship is past the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and we are on our way to Bermuda. It was a fun cruise, the weather and the skies were gorgeous all during our vacation .


I hope you enjoyed my skywatch shots and to see more beautiful skies from all around the world
