Oddball Animals – COB January 28, 2018

cob-bannerCee’s Oddball Challenge is for those photographs that don’t really fit into a common category. There is no theme to this challenge; what is odd ball is up to you. For this weeks challenge, I pulled out some old photos with an Animal Theme. More vacation photos. 

 

What an inviting place to sit!

But then again, this guy is not too inviting either.

If Bliss means heaven, then cruising the Caribbean is my idea of bliss.  Although I have only take three cruises so far (fourth later this summer) I am hooked and all that holds me back is time and money.

There are many things I love about cruising. The serenity of being on the open ocean, away from cell-phones, emails, and social media provides a much needed break from life’s demands. The smell of the ocean air and watching  fish fly out of the break from my own small balcony helps me appreciate the simply pleasures in life.

I love the sense of adventure and exploration. There is always something new to look forward to.

I enjoy experiencing new cultures, meeting new people, and trying new things. Seeing people whose lives are so much different than mine reminds me of my own humanity.

Sunrise and sunsets are always beautiful, and there is no better way to start the day than by grabbing cup of hot  coffee and watching the sun come up over the ocean horizon. There is peace in the quiet and beauty at the start of a day.

 

 

And a sense of gratitude in knowing there will never be another sunrise like the one before you.
