Return to the Mother Ship

Good morning,

While sitting on our tender at Coco Cay, Bahamas, waiting to return to our mother ship, Freedom of the Seas, I took this image of the tender off loading guests next to us.
Reflections of the sun on the water danced on the other tender.
I leaned over the side to see people taking pictures next to the Coco Cay sign.  :)  There have to be millions of these pictures that have been taken over the years.
As we pulled out of our slip at the dock we got a gorgeous view of our mother ship.
We pulled out of the narrow channel...
 ...and were soon on our way "home."
 Almost everyone with a camera took advantage of the photo opportunity.
 Soon we were back aboard Freedom and her wonderful air conditioning!

I can't enjoy... I'm currently suffering from Knitted Cable Envy, after seeing your new Main picture... *sigh*

Thanks, everyone, I just love all the blue. Coco Cay is a wonderful little island and is private for Royal Caribbean guests.

River, that cable in the header is a sweater I made as a special order. The color is so perfect for this time of the year. It's similar to a cables and lace sweater in the shop now in yellow.

Thanks to all for stopping by and for your very kind words.

All the best,
