Arriving at Grand Turk the previous evening, the day started off with the ship already docked. Passengers would have a leisurely day to take in the sights and shop. Always shop.
Resisting the lure of air conditioned shops, the D’Alises opted for a walk to Governor’s Beach, and a honest to goodness shipwreck . . .
That’s a panorama shot taken from very close, hence the distorted view. Here’s a better shot.
OK, maybe not that much of a better shot, but perhaps less distorted. Here’s another one.
It’s kind of a neat wreck as one can go right up to it and touch it. It is right off the beach.
That a juxtaposition shot . . . the opulence of the cruise ship versus the old wreck on the beach. I mean the ship, not me.
The above shot shows another rusty boat in the background. It to looks like a wreck, but it’s afloat. Interestingly, both the wreck on the beach and the rusty boat in the background have newer GPS units and what look like radar domes on them. Not sure what the deal is with that.
Here are two more shots. One is processed as I usually process these shots, while the other is done in heavy HDR to bring out the colors.
Back to the cruise compound and all the shops, we decided to return to the ship. It is interesting forgetting the is a ship there, and seeing it when looking up.
. . . Or seeing it when one gets close.
By the way, this is what our cabin looks like. We are at the very front of the boat on the Marina deck, right above the bridge. Kind of neat to face the same way the ship is heading, way above the water.
This is what Grand Turk looks like from the ship.
Once back on the boat, it’s time for tea . . .
After tea, a bit of rest, then watch the sunset as the ship leaves port.
Then, a nice meal at the evening buffet before an after dinner coffee and dessert.
Another good day on the good ship Royal Princess.
