Touched by the Sun


Night falls over Port Hercule but the sun still touches an enormous cruise ship out at sea. She's too big to enter port, too big to tie up to the relatively new pontoon.

In the smaller photo, another ship spews black smoke as she leaves that pontoon - onward to new playgrounds.

These were taken from the Jardin Exotique - the cacti and succulent garden way above the port and Fontvieille. In the distance you see Cap Martin and beyond that - Italy.

Never been on a cruise and have ambivalent attitudes about it. The ships always look so inviting, tho, and the large one in your photos might be able to change my mind.

This beautiful sight reminds me of Madeira Island. Great shot.
