One-Year Ago (22-January-2016) — Pacific Ocean

Gone to See the World. Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage on the MV World Odyssey. Day 17: Crossing the Pacific Ocean.

Some kind of wonderful!!! You had to be there to take in the dawn view of the sky over the Pacific Ocean. Someday I’ll be able to make a large format print of the full panorama. The day before had been windy and some wave action. Unlike many others, I didn’t get seasick, and didn’t need to take any of the anti-nausea medications. The aft decks 6 and 7 provide some wind protection that allowed me to get out and take images  of the dawn sky and the and sunrise. It was still a couple of days before we would arrive in Yokohama.
