For 3 days, our cruise settled into a routine. Port of call early in the morning, at sea during the night. One of the things I was amazed about (even though I had been prepared for it) was how long some kind of daylight remained. And, as we went further North, sunrise seemed to be ever earlier. Partly because we were 3-4 hours behind our usual routine here in Michigan, and partly because we left the curtains open on our balcony doors, I was awake in the pre-dawn hours and during sunrise each of those mornings. At the beginning of the cruise that meant between 4:00 and 5:00 a.m. By the time we reached Whittier, it was getting light by 3:30 a.m. Because we were blessed with unusually sunny conditions, we had a couple of pretty amazing mornings.
