In mid July we took a cruise up the coast from Seattle, Washington to Alaska trough the "Inside Passage." To see The Coastal Glaciers and Glacier fileds.
I carry a messenger style shoulder bag with my field art kit in it. It always has a 6 inch by 9 inch Watercolor sketch book in it. Anytime I have 20 minutes or more to wait for something I get it out and sketch. These sketches I did aboard ship. I took hundreds of pictures as well, to many to post. We also had several port excursions where I only used the camera.
My suitcase, All ready to go.
Waiting for the safety drill to start on deck the the first day.
Food is a big deal on a cruise. Meals are lavish and formal.
A pencil and sketch book in hand is a great diet aid on a cruise. A Pencil in hand keeps the food on the plate.
