Transatlantic — Last Look Newfoundland and End of Voyage


Cape Spear

It’s been quite a while since I started this series on our back-to-back voyages aboard Royal Caribbean’s Vision of the Seas. Part 1 ran from March 18 through July 19, and took you to many destinations throughout the Baltic. I started running Part 2, showing you our transatlantic crossing, way back on July 22, and this week’s Fun Photo Friday will conclude that series as our final destination was disembarkation from Vision of the Seas in Bayonne, New Jersey.

I hope you enjoyed this series and found it both informative and entertaining.

These back-to-back voyages took place in 2017. My next series will be a bit more current, having taken place this past October on a fall foliage cruise that started with us staying in Montreal for a couple of nights, then taking a train to catch our cruise ship in Quebec, then sailing through the Maritime Provinces, two ports of call in Maine, a brief stopover in Boston, and then a repositioning of the ship to Fort Lauderdale with a stop at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral. From there, we’ll rent a car and take you up the west coast of Florida with stays on Captiva Island and at a historic, recently renovated (and physically moved!) inn near Clearwater.

So, hopefully, we’ll begin this fall foliage series next week.

Interspersed with that new series will also be some gun reviews and articles, as I’ve been neglecting my fellow firearms enthusiasts for some time now. So, if you tune in to my blog for those articles, be patient. In upcoming articles we’ll be looking at a pre-war Smith & Wesson K-22 Outdoorsman; a trio of Russian Mosin-Nagants, including a pristine M44 carbine version from 1945; and perhaps I’ll finally get around to range testing that almost mint W+F Bern K31.

Please stop by on this week’s Fun Photo Friday for one last series of St. John’s-area favorites and a conclusion to our twin Baltic-Transatlantic Adventures. Until then I shall leave you with these final two images:
