A Few Photies

 The beautiful Kiel canal - a short cut to the Baltic sea

 Everyone gets excited as we near the lock that will let us enter the Baltic
 We are going up in the world

 Can you see the 2 orange clad men?  They were walking pulling on a rope and appearing to pull us along with them.  The white things are not barrels of  beer but life rafts

The Baltic at last.

How many people were on that Cruise? Was that a very big ship?
So many questions.....It is all so new to me, having never taken a Cruise anywhere!

I hope I am not posting twice.... Lost my comment.
Love the photos are wonderful. Love the excitement of the Lock photo.
The #3 photo is of vapor trails from high altitude jets.
I live near an Air Force Base and I see then when they are on training missions.

cheers, parsnip

Amazing to see these really large ships going along these canal routes. Even more so that ships of this size traverse the locks.

Pat said...

Naomi: it is one of the smaller ships so can get well up in Fjords. It was just over half full. Not sure why.

Parsnip: thank you for that information:)

Savannah: it can be quite exciting.xoxox

Rashbre: yes we all stood and stared for quite a long period of time.
