How’s this for a bit of sentimental symbolism? We saw two of the best sunsets ever on the last nights of our 22-month trip. How’s that for a fitting end to our trip? Despite the cliché, the spectacle of cloud formations and sunsets over the open ocean, far from land, turned our attention skyward throughout the day on our transatlantic cruise from Europe to the US.
When we saw color changes in the sky, we headed for an upper deck to view the sunset.
Every minute the color changed, the clouds shifted.
After the sun set, we took some photos of the colorful pool area at dusk.
Another night the clouds threatened to block the brilliant colors we’d hoped for. At the last moment the clouds parted just enough for a peak of the yellow orb as it dropped below the horizon.
When the sun had set, we continued to walk laps around the deck. After a few rounds, we saw that deeply colored clouds appeared in the darkening sky.
The technicolor skies lit up like fireworks those last nights. What a welcoming home!
