Cruising Day

Day 5

We’ve changed our clocks three times now. Once to adjust to Oslo time. Once to adjust to Latvian time, and again to adjust to St. Petersburg time. We took sunset photos this week at 10:30pm and tonight at 11:07pm. Land of the midnight sun, indeed! It’s 11:16pm and it’s still not completely set. It also never becomes completely dark. The sky darkens to a grayish blue, it never is fully stygian. Fascinating. I miss all the sunrises as I’m so completely asleep. I’m thinking ships will be much like cars and trains to me – if I’m not moving, I start to fall asleep. I’ve had to keep myself very active on cruising days or I tend to nod off.
