Our 14 days at sea...Part 1

For the first days of our cruise, the winds had a northern chill and the seas were rough. Carlos and I stood on the deck and watched the 7 foot waves with their white caps and foaming seas. It was fun and although many people were seasick, the rough seas hardly bother us. As we approached the Azore Islands of Portugal, the winds died down and the seas calmed and the blue sky and sunny days warmed us quickly! Carlos celebrated his 63rd birthday on board and had a grand time!
The Azores were lovely and we had a a nice walk around town and did a bit of shopping as well as caught up with our e-mails. Our friends happened to be on the same ship (not pre-planned) and we spent some quality time with them!

We have one and onehalf day left and than we start part 2, which is our cruise from Copenhagen to Miami...14 days of wonderful sea air and just two stops, one in the Azores of Portugal and the other at the island of St Thomas.
The first three days in Denmark we spend in Jutland in the city of Kolding. Now for the last three days we are in the small village of Lejre about an hour from the capital city of Copenhagen. Today we spent in Copenhagen visiting Elsinore and Kronborg Castle as well as a forest with deer.
