We sat in the great bay of this remote city on the Kamchatka Peninsula of eastern Russia waiting for Russian officials to clear us to go ashore for a brief visit.
Going ashore was eventually cancelled, due to unsafe conditions for exiting the tender boats.
It was freezing out, but crystal clear! These pictures (some taken with a zoom lens) are all taken from the ship.
Still here, at twilight - the golden hour, waiting for the Russians to let us leave.
We had a wonderful show at night put on by the Crystal singers and dancers and musicians and guest performers. The four women in the string quartet and the two lead dancers who have been on the full world cruise, are all from Russia, so our Russian show was authentic!
We have three sea days ahead of us as we travel to Alaska and the other side of the International Dateline.
That means we have two Thursdays instead of one. By Sunday we'll be four hours behind Eastern Daylight Time and on the same day.
