January 8th, 2012 – Sea Day
To the fitness center then breakfast on the Lido deck. This sea day routine is becoming very comfortable, very quickly.
We attended a lecture by an oceanographer on “Waves” – fascinating subject and a good teacher. He is a professor at the University of Maryland and a former Navy meteorologist. Lectures on varied subjects are more common on these long cruises and we certainly enjoy them.
Right now I am in the library/Internet cafe and am sending a photo of same.
Sally is off to an acupuncture lecture (or is it really sales pitch?) Note – it turned out to be a sales pitch – and a good one – one treatment and her hip, which has been irritating her, feels great.
In the evening we watched Denver play Pittsburg – go Tebow, and went to the evening show – Melissa Manchester put on a good show, and was joined by her daughter – Hannah, who also is a good singer.
Tomorrow is our first port of call, Roseau, Dominica.
