For The Love Of Food

I was thinking back and going through cruise vacation photos.  It did not occur to me at the time that I was taking as many photographs of what we ate as I was taking of the Caribbean Sea.  Funny.  In any case, everything was incredible.  The dining rooms had different levels of light and darkness On some nights the seas were very choppy and rough.
The food was always thoughtfully prepared and executed.
