Cruising the South China Sea
Great night’s sleep; woke up at 7:45 (that internal alarm clock is still working) in plenty of time to watch the Morning Show. I was in the Bistro at 8:50 waiting for them to open. Celeste & Bill joined me for a little breakfast. Just before 10, Adrian (with a sheepish grin on his face), comes to the table with a Portuguese tart on a plate just for me. I wouldn’t have; but how can you so no that face?
Capt. Glenn reports that we are sailing in the South China Seas, which are only 160-180’ deep at the moment. We’re chugging along on 2 engines at 13 knots; & it’s a comfy 84* partly cloudy outside. His thought for the day….”The best & most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched; but are felt in the heart.”
I got to meet Christie (KaraokeQueen) for the first time, here with Pat (SnoBirdcruiser)
I sat on a sofa in the lobby; & then noticed there was nobody at the Cove Bar. Hmmmmmm, if ever I need something to drink it was now! I spread all the tour info out on the bar; & ordered a bellini-tini (part bellini/part martini). Shortly, I was less stressed; & able to think everything through.
About 4 it got very dark outside & soon started to pour down rain. The rain & the bellini-tini sent me right into naptime mode, that lasted a little too long (like 3 hrs). Liz brought dinner about 8:30. Tonight’s dinner was a little unorthodox. I had a smoked sausage & a little bowl of pasta arrabiatta. I asked for it nice & spicy; & it was perfect.
