Wednesday, Unexpected Day at Sea

Wednesday, Unexpected Day at Sea
We woke up this morning to a howling wind and high seas expecting to dock in Warnemunde, Germany. However, the captain announced on the public address that the winds were too high and it was unsafe to attempt to dock.  Two hours later he came back on to announce that we would be continuing on to Sweden instead with a tour of the Swedish coastline prior to docking in Stockholm tomorrow early afternoon. We would then remain overnight there. This was great news for me because it would allow some more night photography.
The day was spent relaxing and napping.  Well, I napped, MA went to see the movie “The King’s Speech” and she loved it. Earlier at breakfast we met a family from Mexico City, a place that is dear to MA because she lived and studied there during her second year in college. 
We strolled around the ship, read our library books and had lunch later meeting three ladies who take cruises together.  One of them was complaining to any who would listen about being upgraded to a $16,000 suite from her mid-ship mini-suite. She didn’t like the $16,000 one because it was too windy on the balcony, being at the front of the ship and then later she could hear the wind through the balcony doors while she was trying to sleep.  Some people not only examine a gift horse in the mouth they complain when it’s the wrong color. Her traveling companions were rolling their eyes behind her back. The rest of us at the table offered to trade places with her.  No dice!
Well, we are getting all dressed up tonight for formal night.  We’ll take our own photos and save $40.  See ya!
