Day 9-At Sea
I should never do selfies! Anyway this is my room steward Sydney. He keeps everything neat & clean for me.
Today started out sunny and just a little cool With no rain. I was even able to have breakfast on the back patio area. But as the morning went on, the Captain saw a storm coming upon our path and diverted us to another way-raining and cold again.
Today, we could go out on the open decks, but no high heels. As if.
I attended the first of two parts of a
Marilyn Monroe presentation. Very well done. After that, I meandered through the art gallery and the casino.
I don’t plan on buying art this trip.
I have contributed $60 to this place. While in the casino, just visiting of course, I ran into one of my dining room companions from dinner and we headed off to lunch to meet new friends in the dining room.
Then after a fairly rushed lunch off to a magic show Matinee.
Tonight, Abe and I are going to a fancy dress cocktail party before dinner. Life is good!
