ON THE WATER

Carmi over on Written Inc. has chosen ON THE WATER for this week's challenge.   As I have just come off a cruise Ship, this was just up my street, as they say!




We had some pretty rough seas as we crossed the Bay of Biscay!





When it did get hot, the main occupation of a great many people seemed to be to kipper themselves!   (And I must say we met more than a few who had succeeded in doing this!)   Haven't they heard of skin cancer?


Approaching the Rock of Gibraltar in the early dawn was an amazing experience!   It wasn't until I saw it standing way above the surrounding land, and dominating the Straits that I realised what an important strategical position it held!

Love the wave pictures, and that one of the Rock is beautiful.

I think I have some Gibraltar shots in wartime among my brother's photos - but none showing lights on the Rock. Love those waves, but not the kippers - I have just had a skin cancer removed from my leg.

Looks like you had a great cruise! Love that 2nd wave snap you took.

WOW - great pics... What was the cruise liners name??

My 'TP', last image is a bit of a stretch, but its close... Mines up as well at AussiePomm - Pelican in-flight

Have a great day!!

I really like the wave shots, and the picture of the Rock - that's somewhere I would like to go. But I'm afraid that the idea of a cruise doesn't appeal at all - and the "kippers" picture sums up why I feel that way!
