Underway… it’s the only way!

Well, I’m underway on the mighty BOUTWELL. It has been sometime since I have sailed the open ocean, and I have truly missed it.
I met the ship in Curacao, an island nation that I have always enjoyed. I was fortunate to stay in Curacao for five days prior to leading to head back to the states.
I stayed in the Renaissance Resort hotel, with it’s absolutely fabulous man-made beach and salt water pool (more real ocean than anything). The beach area was accessible from my room via a walk way – 20 feet to the beach from my door – and amazingly enough on the second floor of the hotel above several shops. What an awesome infinity pool!

Underway, we transited through the Panama Canal, my first time ever! Truly a modern marvel.

You know sun sets at sea are truly amazing, and I can’t wait to share photos in the near future.

This Journey has just begun… so, stay tuned!
