Oscar Sun Bathing

Good morning,

One day while standing on the bridge of Freedom of the Seas I noticed this guy in a wet suit passed out on a deck chair on the bow of the ship.
This is how he looked without the zoom.

Have you ever been on board a ship and you hear the announcement "Oscar, Oscar, Oscar?"

Well, this is Oscar.  Actually, he is a dummy that is used for the Man Overboard crew drills.  I just got such a kick out of how the crew had propped him up in the chair.

Life at sea is such fun.

Incredible view, warm greetings!

Funny! Hope your seas are fair, with a following wind :-)

Happy New Year, Lois!

Glad to see Oscar catching some rays!

Thanks for the info, Lois, which I didn't know as we have never been on a cruise (yet) but now I will be prepared if we do ever go!
