Days 5, 6, 7, and 8……at Sea


Days 5, 6, 7, and 8……at Sea

For the last four days we have been sailing east across the Atlantic toward Gibraltar. On Day 5 & 6 the weather turned sour; cloudy, rain at times, and even cold. We settled into a routine of a breakfast in the dining room, morning trivia, and coffee in the Piazza, lunch in the dining room, and a nap ever so often.  In the afternoon we played Progressive trivia with new friends Walt, Al, Bill & Carla.  We formed a team called the Texans plus 1, we added Walt but kept the same name.  We were playing against some pretty stiff competition composed of 12 other teams.  We placed 5th out of about 20 teams, not enough to win a prize (a plastic Princess pen!).

I’ve managed to read two books and I’m working on the third. Life on the ship isn’t exactly all about eating and napping. Every day I walk my 3 miles, round and round the deck and MA has faithfully done her 5 miles on the stationery bicycle. Mostly what we enjoy is meeting new folks and swapping travel stories with them.

 In the evening we went back to the dining room at 8:15 pm to our regular table with Walt, Jan, Bill, and Sam. The last two days the weather has been beautiful.  The Atlantic is like a lake.  We dock in Gibraltar on Tuesday morning and have an excursion to Marbella, a Spanish resort town that I will tell you about tomorrow.

Later….WW

    Thanks for the update.

    Sounds like y'all had plenty of entertainment on the crossing. Nice the weather turned around before you arrive at Gibraltar.

    Looking forward to the next update.
