Beautiful Day at Sea

Good morning,

I have just three pictures today.  This first one is the view down the port side of Freedom of the Seas from the wing bridge.  The sea is so calm and the colors so clear that it is difficult to see where the sea meets the sky.
 This is the view of the calm sea off the port side.  It is so pretty, it almost calls to us to jump in for a swim, but we are cruising along at about 18 knots.  I don't think I would be able to keep up.
Looking over to the bow, you can see the helipad for those who must be evacuated quickly.  When not is use for helicopters, guests are permitted in this area and benches are provided to relax and enjoy the sea breeze on the bow. 

I just love these pictures.  It is so hard to describe the true peace that is found out here at sea.  So beautiful.

The first shot is my favorite, Lois. It's almost difficult to see the sea, sky and ship - all seem to mesh together. The weather looks wonderful too!
