Oh God thy sea is so great and my boat is so small.

Good morning,

While we are out at sea we often see very small boats that come by our large ship to take a look.

These images were taken while Freedom of the Seas was tied up at the private island of Labadee. Many of these men are employed on the island.

I could not help but think of the famous fisherman's prayer.

I believe there is a big difference between "your" ship and those small boats :) Have a nice weekend!

Big difference!!! When I'm kayaking, it is fun to turn into the wake from bigger boats and ride the waves!

It looks very scary to me to be in that little boat. Beautiful ocean. Thanks for the pictures.

Judith said...

Yes they look pretty small and a long way down from you.
