Nice! I wrote about the water, too. But, my ship was not pretty like yours.

Looks a bit like the Flying Dutchman in limbo. Very fitting words.

Bequalmed and bewildered.

wow, this is beautiful. Frustrating stranding; so near yet never making land.

Somehow, I think I'd rather enjoy that stranded for awhile.

I’m late to visit because ‘life’ got in the way, but I did publish two ‘week 6’ posts for One Single Impression: Stranded ... one on each of my blogs on Wednesday of last week and I hope you’ll find time to visit. They’re here: Heliocopter Rescue and Polar Bears
Hugs and blessings,
