Ice Carving Demonstration - Freedom of the Seas

 Good morning,

I captured this series of images of an Ice Carving Demonstration on board Freedom of the Seas.
 You have to watch quickly because it is done in only a matter of minutes.
 The procedure is filmed and can be seen in real time on the big screen TV on the pool deck and later on a ship channel TV in your cabin.

 The children watching are all guessing what the finished sculpture will be.


 This time the finished product was a graceful dolphin.  Fun!

 All the best,
 Lois

That really is an amazing talent that I have appreciated for years. Love to watch the creative process that is done so quickly!

That is awesome! I've been keeping up with your travels but haven't had time to stop and comment. I hope you have a wonderful 2013.

That is a wonderful exhibition, but, looking at everyone there, it will be the end of dolphin very soon.

That is so amazing! Reminds me of the ice sculptures when we lived in Fairbanks, Alaska.

I think that takes some skill to create an animal out of ice!

Such a different venue for ice carving, and so much more fleeting than our ice sculptures here, although they don't last long either. A lot more comfortable for the carver on the ship too.

Its funny to see this with all the sunny weather. We have our Ice Fest in a few weekends in the snow. Quite different, but always fun!

A nice series of photos of life on the deck of the ship. Has the weather been hot Lois? Have fun.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for your visits and kind comments.

Pamela: The weather is very different depending on where we are. Two weeks ago in Port Canaveral it was 42 degrees F. Pretty cold for the Sunshine State! When we get down to St. Thomas, USVI, it warms up to the 80's. In between the temp is all over the place. A sweater is definitely needed for those cool breezes from time to time.

Thanks again, everyone. We look forward to our trip back to Ohio later this month. :) I can just smell the bread baking at home now.

All the best,
Lois
