At Sea - 18 Mar 2016
A pair of large, brown sea birds would also be seen in the distance, but I’d be unable to even verify if they were shearwaters; they tended to flap more than glide, so I have no clue. They’ll have to remain unidentified. ☹
A peck on the cheek, and several minutes later I was down on the Promenade shooting flying fish. For the next hour or so I walked the ship and attempted to capture some of the little buggers as they shot away from the ship’s hull.
Robin would catch up w/ me, and we decided to get an afternoon Bahama Mama and enjoy some shade under the canopy of the ship’s Tiki Bar. By now the skies had cleared, and the sun was scorching exposed skin. I was already burnt on the face and arms from spending the 1st 2 days at sea scanning seabirds.
We would spend the next half hour or so chatting with folks from New Jersey who were interested in what my reasons would be for carrying such a heavy camera system on the ship. They had seen me on Curacao yesterday so we swapped camera stories while I helped them ID the Banaquits that entertained them on their tour yesterday.
