Seas have calmed and the sun is back and very intense with the reflection of the water. I’m going to get stronger SPF tomorrow for sure. Its amazing out here and a humbling felling to be traveling in such luxury but at the same time a fire, sickness or as I was thinking will running on the elliptical bike thinking about a rogue wave could change our false sense of security into something like Poseidon Adventure. But believe me I am not dwelling on the negative but enjoying the serenity which I never expected to feel so much on a ship that holds over 6000 people. I have been in the sauna many times and generally I am the only one or maybe one or two others and very pleasant conversations ensue as we look out of a solid glass wall out to the ocean. Went to Legends in Concert last night and Rick’s Mom would have loved the show. Talk about a handsome young Elvis, couldn’t get to him for a picture because of all the women flocking for their picture with the King. Madonna was great in her lingerie and provocative moves just amazing and I was blown by the Steven Tyler’s look alike complete with the big lips, long stingy hair and voice and moves that was exacting like Steven’s. I’ve been seeing Rod Stewart since the beginning for the cruise so I expected he was the look alike but must have taken the night off or maybe it’s actually Rod lol. Then enjoyed Howling at the Moon Dueling Piano show and we requested songs and sang along until after midnight (about 3 hours past my usual bedtime).
I’m going to try to send a couple of pictures but last night’s first post was $15 and I had everything pre typed and cut and paste. I took some lower quality pictures to reduce the upload time so I will give it a shot. Tonight I’m going to have Chinese food at the Shanghai Restaurant and a show called Grafitti Classic which is advertized as jaw dropping and side splitting entertainment. Google it for description but basically it’s a unique alternative to the String Quartet, with an all singing, all dancing, comedy cabaret act of classical jazz, opera, folk and acoustic music. Plan on bowling tomorrow Dad, hope your team won at league (miss the group so please say high!). Bye for now!
