(The little guy pictured above was born sixty-six years ago tomorrow.)

As of noon today we are 2,000 miles east of Miami, 2,000 miles south of Greenland and the same latitude as the southernmost Canary Islands. It is growing cooler with today’s high temperature reaching 76 degrees. We are continuing under the influence of a high pressure system that graces us with mostly sunny skies, a steady wind out of the NNW. Seas present an even and pleasant 8-10 foot swell at regular intervals that make for excellent sleeping. Mal de mer is a problem for only the most susceptible. It’s a crystal clear full moon night right now as we glide northeast at 20 knots.

With this post I am including some images of the art that is on display throughout the ship. Pieces include historical Viking artifacts that are over 1,000 years old. Enjoy, and of course…

Peace Everyone! Pete

PS. As an aside, tomorrow, April 1st, is my 66th birthday, and what a remarkable way to celebrate this milestone! I only wish that my entire family could be here to celebrate it with Christine and me.

    Such fond sweet memories of dear sweet Peter–at age three could identify the make of every car on the road. He was his grandmother, Labibe’s delight as they shared birthday’s and Easters–not often enough. Blessings!!
