Tuesday, June 12
Full day at sea with gale force winds. Needless to say, we were tossed about. Strange noises made me wonder if we were going to arrive on land ever again. (We did.) I decided I do not want to die by drowning in the ocean (or any other body of water). I’ve always thought, if I get hurt or killed, it’d be while biking. Therefor, I have not tempted fate by riding the stationary bike in the gym aboard ship. (I expect I’ll pay for this in other ways…gaining weight on this trip and having to start again on my training for my week long bike ride in July.)
This turned out to be a nap day. Took two long naps (how did I get so tired doing nothing?)
Spent the evening watching Nathan Foley. Good entertainer! Was his second show on board. We’d seen him before so were sure it’d be a good show.
Then, for a total change of music, we went to the classical music presentation by a trio from Hungaria. They are excellent musicians but the violinist! Wow!! The trio, Rhapsody Strings Trio, have played many times during the cruise and they are GREAT.
Paid for the naps later as I couldn’t fall asleep. It was well past midnight when I did and then it was the sleep where you don’t feel like you’re really sleeping. But I woke up at 6:30…half an hour before the alarm was set to go off.
