View 378: Castaway Magic

On my last adventure, it was very cold and wintery. On this one, the weather was not ideal for the location but much warmer and tropical.

My wife and I took a three-night Caribbean cruise on Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Magic cruise ship. The only port of call was at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. As you can see, the weather was a bit cloudy and cool compared to what you would associate with a Caribbean island. Still, it was a far cry from the 25 degree F weather back home!

While the weather was not the best, I did manage to find some color and a beach. 🙂

This trip gave me a chance to continue to learn using the Nikon AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VR FX Wide Angle Lens I got last month.
