Our 115 day World Cruise, day 77, at sea!

This is definitely a sea day!  I made a back pillow for Rosine and it took me 10, does that count for anything?  After going to coffee alone we went to Joanne's to pick up filler for Rosines pillow, we went to Costco and then home.  I made the pillow, ate a piece of black forest cake in memory of Tami's birthday and then we went to see Rosine.  Now it is time for me to go sit in my chair!  So, put me in my room and call room service!

Where we did not go today....but the Amsterdam did!

   Day at Sea  

Well, there's not a whole lot to report today except that the weather remains the and sticky.  The good thing about sailing at a speed of about 19 knots is that it creates a breeze that really helped while we were relaxing at the poolside this afternoon.  We counted about 10 other sunbathers at the aft pool.  Everyone else stayed under the umbrellas or inside the ship.

Keeping occupied was easy since there were many things to do.  Explorations speakers continued their series of lectures.  Robert Schrire discussed humankind with the threat of terorism, the rise of China, and climate change.  All loaded subjects for sure.  Joe Daley spoke about travel in the middle ages and how far and why they traveled where they did.

The movie in the Wajang Theater was Hitchcock, a 2012 flic about the famous filmmaker that we all knew and loved as kids.  Tomorrow, this same movie will appear on TV and run all day.  Also, this evening, the movie Lincoln was shown at 7:30 and 10pm in the Queens Lounge.  There was no show scheduled, because there was a "Prom Night" evening planned for 9:30pm in the Crows Nest.  Actually, the formal dinner was branded Prom Night, a new theme for most of us.  Our waiters were dressed in turquoise or pink vests with matching bow ties.  The napkins on the tables also matched their attire, while shocking pink streamers hung from the ceilings.  Coursages and boutonnieres were sold for $25. for the matching set. Renee, the spa manager, joined us for the evening.  Barb, who was visiting another table upstairs, will be sorry she missed her.  We had the better deal........fine company with free wine and sodas.

We had a wonderful morning poolside today until…..  the rain and clouds came.  It turned out to be a great day for visiting with friends.  Tomorrow I return to Colombo Sri Lanka where I had such a wonderful visit last year.  I will go out with Ed & Becky first thing and then we will meet up with Corrine later at the Galle Face Hotel.  It promises to be a very hot and steamy day…
