Today’s Fun Photo Friday begins a new travel series.  This trip began with three nights in Sydney, Australia and ended a month later when our cruise ship MS Oosterdam docked in Seattle, Washington.  But before we begin our trip in earnest, let’s introduce your guides:

Saying Goodbye to Bar Harbor and the MS Maasdam


Departing Bar Harbor

Departing Bar Harbor

Our departure from Bar Harbor took place late afternoon with the sun in our eyes as we looked back toward shore. As such the lighting was far from optimal for most shots. But you know what the say — when life hands you chicken guano, make chicken salad. Or is that something about lemons and lemonade? I get these things mixed up sometimes.

At any rate I made the best I could of a bad situation, even resorting to some Black & White conversions to take advantage of the lighting in my favor. Hope you enjoy the slide show:

Monday will conclude not only our visit to Mount Desert Island, Bar Harbor, and Acadia National Park, it will also conclude our look at this particular Holland America cruise aboard the MS Maasdam. I hope you’ve enjoyed our journey from Montreal.

It's a TRAP!

In today’s series you’ll see not only Bar Harbor and Acadia, you’ll find a new subject — Egg Rock Light — a lighthouse we encountered on our departure from Frenchman Bay and our turn south for Boston.
