Sunset off the coast of St. Maarten. September 11, 2001.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday, a weekly meme created and hosted by 2sweetnsaxy of Eyes Mind Heart.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your pictures to share, click HERE.

The picture above was taken from our cruise ship on a September evening as we were leaving Philipsburg, St. Maarten in the Caribbean.  You can see a little of the coast of the island at the extreme right, but mostly you see water and the vastness of the ocean — a perfect scene for Watery Wednesday.

    Yeah, I agree it’s indeed a very perfect scene, with the sun glowing and the water so calm. Perfect it is.

    Beautiful. That must’ve been an amazing Caribbean vacation.

  3. The Right Blue Says:

    It is a lovely scene. I’m also struck by the date you mention. This scene is in such contrast to what was happening in the U.S. on that date.

  4. 2sweetnsaxy Says:

    Sigh! I sure would love to be on a cruise ship looking at a view like that again. Beautiful!

    The water and the vastness of the ocean are wonderful and when you add that sky all the right elements come together perfectly!

    Your photo is beautiful. I can imagine sitting on the verandah of a cabin enjoying the view.

    You were having a much better view of the world than most Americans at that time! I hope they didn’t mess up anyone’s trip with the news while you were out there!

    Beautiful sunset! I love the soft colors and sunlight in this one~

  25. Valkyrien Says:

    A lovely sunset – and the small curls on the ocean speaks of a little breeze! I am guessing a warm breeze!

    And sorry George; I will keep the little warmth we have in Oslo! I am freezing to the bones! (Well – it IS getting better here! No complaints anymore!) 🙂

    Beautiful sunset, not sure how you had your might on the sunset on that day. Think it would have been very disturbing to be on a cruise during that time.
