This blog is an informal chronicle of things that most interest me (a retired U.S. Naval Officer, who loves going back to sea in great cruise ships)....the sea, ships, travel, cruising, history, architecture, nature, culture, society, photography....
Since I'm a hopeless romantic about ships and the sea....you'll see many sea stories from my U.S. Navy Surface Warfare Officer ship-driving days....and, when I travel, real-time stories and photos from my further adventures on land and sea.
My posts here are via the two great mobile devices that travel with me around the world: a Microsoft Surface Pro Windows 8.1 tablet, and a Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8.
