Day At Sea
On this day we would spend the entire day at sea and do a little packing. When we went to bed the previous night, we were at 58 03.49N 134 53.28W and when we woke and check the system again around 7AM we were at 55 16.93N 134 14.20W. At this point we had sailed a total of 1461.1 Nautical Miles since we left Seattle, Washington. Since leaving Skagway, Alaska, we have sailed 257.7 Nautical Miles and we were still 635.0 Nautical Miles from Victoria, Canada which will be on the next blog entry.
How might I know this information so exactly? On of the channels on our room television is a constant ship information station and as part of that broadcast we get real-time navigation along with maps and all sorts of other information.
After going up stairs to have breakfast, we return to our room around 9AM and the system now shows we are inside Canadian waters at 54 26.19N 133 51.29W and this is what the map shows.
After having lunch I checked the system again at 1PM and we are at 53 15.16N 133 13.49W and this is what we see from out balcony.
After watching a movie, I go outside around 3PM to get some fresh air and also note our position being 52 41.51N 132 41.85W. Not much happening and the other balconies look empty so you can tell folks are leisurely taking in the ships amenities, eating, taking a nap
We would relax in our room taking in a few televisions shows and I would see we here we were at around 4PM (52 23.21N 132 18.12W) and again at 5PM (52 07.19N 131 51.60W)
After coming back from Dinner at 7PM, there is something noticeable and that is that lack of land on the Port Side. Here is that last piece of land I will see at 52 40.05N 132 06.84W
One thing they tell you is that Every DAY, HOUR, MINUTE, we are in Whale Country plus other things so try to always have your cameras ready. Around 7:30PM, I spot Dall’s Porpoise and try to catch a little video of them.
By 9PM the sun is starting to set so one last shot from outside as well as some navigation information
So, as you can see, a Day at Sea can be used as a time to just sit back and relax or take advantage of the various ships amenities / activities and “Escape Completely”
