I love the prompt sent to us this week by Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime in our 52 week photo challenge: Observe the Curve. The first thing I thought of was boats and sails so off I went in search of the photos I took on our 20th wedding anniversary cruise. We called it our cruise of a life time but since then we have taken two more on this line. It is called the Star Clipper Cruise Line and all three ships are wind driven Clipper Ships.
In the meantime, I asked my husband what he thought of when he heard the prompt. He replied that it was a no brainer, the curves of a woman's body. Yes, I guess that is what a man would think.
Yes, this was ten years ago this year. I can't believe how fast the years have gone. Time flies when you are having fun.

We spent a week aboard the Royal Clipper sailing around Southern Italy and then another week on a tour seeing Northern Italy. What a beautiful place.
Kirk and I spent a lot of time in front of the ship in the bow net. It was so exciting to look down at the sea below but also very relaxing. We found out later that the sign in front of me said, "Do not go beyond this sign."
This is the view out of the dinning room at sunset. I love the curve of the port hole and the slight curve of the horizon.

I love the sea and all the creatures in it so this was an exceptional vacation for me.
The second half of the trip was packed with famous cities and sights but if I had it to do again, I would have taken the tour first and then the cruise. On a tour you are up early every day and going all day long. We were exhausted when we got home. The ship was so comfortable and relaxing and yet there was something to do every day.
We really liked Florence with beautiful art everywhere but I guess my favorite city that we visited was Venice. I loved that there was water everywhere. I guess the negative ions made me feel happy and secure.
Thanks for letting me take this trip down memory lane. It was so much fun.
Have a wonderful week!
