Our Trip to Europe
April 29 - June 26 2005

Page 2 - Cruise Across the Atlantic - the Azores

After leaving Key West, we did not see land again for six days.  We had been a bit concerned about finding things to kep us occupied for six full sea days, but we were delighted to find plenty to do.  Boredom was not there!

As we approached the Azores, the weather became rather stormy, as can be seen at right.  The photo is taken as we pulled into the harbor, the dock being near topright corner (Yes, those tour busses are waiting for us.)

We had signed up for a sightseeing tour, but because it was foggy and raining we didn't see very much and took only a few photos whenever it partially cleared up.

After touring (?) the Azores, we reboarded our ship and set sail for Cadiz, Spain.
