Day 350 – 10/21/11 – Tender

At most of our stops we were able to pull into port and tie up at the dock.  Some ports just aren’t able to handle something as large as a cruise ship though.  In those cases, rather than make the passengers swim to shore, the ship lowers some of it’s life boats to act as ‘tenders’ to take passengers to and from their shore excursions.  Here we are in Bar Harbor, watching one tender depart as another is lowered.

Later that day we were afforded a view back into the harbor, to see the Jewel resting amongst the smaller ships.

On a housekeeping note, I realize that the cruise series has gone nearly two weeks at this point, making it the longest series yet.  To be honest I could easily finish out the rest of the project with just cruise images.  I don’t intend to do so though.  As it is I feel a bit like I’m cheating by not creating new images for these days.  On the other hand, the cruise provided way too many good images on a huge variety of subject matter, and I just can’t leave them on the cutting room floor.  I have another few images I intend to use, and will then move on to a new subject.

  1. That’s a big boat (I sometimes have the gift of the obvious)! 😀
