Navigating the Anticruise
This web-presentation is organized like a book. You'll get the most out of it by going through it in a similar manner: from beginning to end.
Carrying on with the book topology, the page is the same as a book cover.
Next is the page (hint, you are on it now). From here, those spacey links (in the table above) can take you to specific entries.
An catalog provides a mind boggling contact-sheet (a term from the prehistoric times of non-digital photography) array of thumbnail links to each photo used in this presentation.
These stunningly beautiful, navigation menu-bars (floating gracefully above the bottom of each page) take you sequentially through the presentation. They always know where you are, and exactly where to go next.
During our Other-Side-of-the-Continent anticruise - San Diego to Charleston - we posted text messages and position reports to a private blog, via satellite. Turns out, exactly one-hundred of those entries are worth re-posting here, and they make a great framework for this web-presentation.
Here's a typical ENTRY with an explanation of it's various parts.
Clicking on these stylish image-thumbnails takes you to their associated photo.
