Another Day in Paradise
 
 James Michener had proclaimed it the most beautiful island on this Earth. Still, it's not where you go, it's who you go with.

"Ive just been shot Bob" ..."Me too Ed"


His speeches leave me speechless- He is the most interesting man.

Another Day in Paradise
Got out of town on a boat goin' to Southern islands
Sailing a reach before a followin' sea
She was makin' for the trades on the outside
And the downhill run to Papeete

 Crystal On Board Launch Party

There is no doubt about it, the exhilarating state of mind that travel can evoke, when everything seems suddenly fresh, vivid, intensely interesting, and memorable, is 10x when ballons and confetti get involved---waking you  up while you are already awake; things have a way of seeming emphasized and  underlined. The Balloon Tycoons were in full force Monday.

Out To Launch


 This kind of travel, is SWEET: Going Native - Staying Longer, Traveling Slowly.

Whatever you do on New Year's Day, you will be doing for the whole year. That's what I would like to believe. I am learning something new, helping others  and enjoying life more...and I am doing this on a cruise ship.

Cruise Control

I have been able to use my "relationship" with the sea  to accumulate knowledge and experiences,--- it's self-expansion, a  “Michelangelo effect,” that is sculpting   me in  in ways that move me forward to  attain valued goals I have set for myself- like this statement: I haven't been everywhere, but it is on my list.


There is some comfort in the emptiness of the sea, no past, no future. The Last Samurai
