Jason, what a wonderful virtual cruise! Thank you for taking the time to post what you were doing and the great pictures.

Jason said: "Our ship sailed into a bay surrounded by mountains that stretched high into the sky. Similar to Alaska’s mountains in scale, these were considerably less covered with vegetation, but the trees that did spot the mountains appeared specifically placed, very much like those you would see within a model train set. In fact, the whole port appeared like a giant model train set to me, with the stunning mountains above and the Old World buildings uniformly skirting the coastline. All that was missing, it would seem, were the trains themselves."

(My emphasis.) I found this post especially interesting as I've felt the same way in different ports !

"A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour."
