Serenity is finding peace and freedom while traveling life’s storms,

and realizing it is not always about surviving Life’s storms

but learning how to dance between the rain … ©IsadoraDeLaVega


Tina @ Travel and Trifles this week challenges us to post photographs of ‘Serenity’.

    • I love the evening breeze after sunset. Sitting on the deck in the darkness of night is very soothing. For us, it’s the no-brainer of cruise travel that we like. We’ve tried many different cruise lines. They all offer different things. Plus at our ages, we just want to sit back, go to the theater on-board and relax watching a sunset. 👍
      Thanks for enjoying my selections, Amy. I’ve been enjoying the challenges. 😎


  1. Who wouldn’t like to have the favourite chair so close to the ocean … beautiful. The ocean is a big part of my life. Have sailed on all 7 seas … under the Northern Star and Southern Cross too. So I understand where you’re coming from. Lovely post.

    • Oh my … how fortunate to have been able to sail. My sailing is on cruise ship … 17 and counting. The scent of the sea is intoxicatingly peaceful. Thank you for sharing your adventures.
      This is the back area of a member of my orchid club. It’s the peace river. It’s quite ominous when a storm is building. It shows the power of what Mother NAture can do. Glad you enjoy my photographs. Thank you for visiting, Viveka, and commenting.

      • 17 cruises????!!! I don’t know if I could manage that. I worked a year aboard one and that was more than enough. Have friends that is cruise lovers. Good for you.
        The ocean (there is really only one … we give it different names depending on where it docks) has many faces … and there is nothing so beautiful as a heavy storm so long as the ship is secured. Thank you, Isadora. Love your name.


        • Awww … thanks for the compliment on my name. I love it now but as a small child it was a heavy name to carry. Many kids enjoyed using it to mock me. Poo on them. ~~~ : – )
          Yes, we started cruising in 2004. We like to take two a year if it works out. It can get hectic with touring but now we just like to have the ship takes us to no particular place. We just enjoy the sea air. So far … crossed fingers … have never had an incident. The ships are quite stable but it is the ocean and it has a pwoer behind it we can never lose sight of. 😎

    • Right now, it’s a bit HOT… mid 90’s with a heat index making it feel over 100. Although, a quick dip in the pool helps. But the inspiration goes away due to being totally relaxed. July, August and September are always HOT that way. In the fall, it’s a blessing to look out at nature for inspiration. Glad you enjoyed … 😎
