Adventure of the Seas

The Adventure of the Seas is a large cruise ship with odd features; waterslide and minature golf on the top deck! Who needs this?

I photographed her departure at Shoal Point the lighthouse at the entrance to Halifax Harbour. Late day photos are always the best with the sun at my back.
