(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 207: Shuffleboard

 I am posting photographs from my family collections for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday (you know me, I can't go wordless!).    

Here is a picture from our recent Royal Caribbean cruise (Norway-France-Ireland-England-Scotland-Norway).  

The time is Sunday, 13 May 2012 at about 2 p.m. (France time).  The place is the 10th Deck of the Vision of the Seas cruise ship in the North Sea between Oslo and Le Havre.  This shuffleboard court is on the port side forward along the walking/jogging track.

The two shuffleboard players in the picture at Geoff Rasmussen (shooting the puck) and Luc Comeau (shivering and watching).  Geoff and Luc are part of the Legacy Family Tree team.  The temperature is about 10 C (50 F) and the wind over this top deck is about 40 knots (ship speed = 20 knots, headwind - 20 knots).  Wind Chill = COLD!

The wind would gust and curve the puck near the end of its' journey, or would lift the puck and make it roll off the shuffleboard court.  

Luc and Geoff invited me to play, so I did.  Fortunately, there are no pictures of me playing.  We had a lot of fun, and many laughs.  Thank you to Geoff and Luc for taking pity on my frozenness and letting me get warmed up a bit.

Randy, it looks like you had a great time on the cruise. I will wager shuffleboard is not as easy as it appears to be!
