From dawn til dusk

6am: Explorer of the Seas, a huge cruise by Royal Carabbean, enters the dock without waking a soul. I still find it fascinating how such a big vessel can be so silent in the water. 

The temperature has reached 30c today, warmer than it has been with the storms and heavy rainfall. For this reason I took another ten or so km walk down to Manly to soak up the last remaining hours of the weekend. As I was walking I just caught the back end, or stern as it is more formally known, disappearing behind the cliff face to the left of this picture. Sadly, this shot was taken mere seconds after the last of the ship was visible. The couple seen here would have had a fantastic view of it sailing by. 

I’ve left today’s post a little late as I am still sorting out a flat to move into. Once I am settled I will have so much more time for the things I enjoy doing, from blogging to working out. There is nothing worse than having your passions put on hold, but there is no better feeling than being able to do them again.

Have a great Sunday.

Emptying my mind onto the web and hoping to make sense of it. Hoping to help others going through similar struggles.

    1. Thank you for the kind words 🙂 I was very fortunate to be in a beautiful lobby of a hotel, so it provided a great setting to view the ship through. Shortly afterwards, the sunrise made the ship really glow and it was incredible!
