it is our last sea day and the last full day of this two week expedition. I have found some interesting people at scrapbooking and sitting around in lounges and at dinner on various evenings.
I obviously owe a few photos and other communications by mail (DvD of photos) or email (hey – have your email, an address would be really good).
I even got it together to look at future cruises which should surprise no one. Especially Brad and Chere who I have talked into heading to Antartica with me in 2014. It might have been nice to go in 2013 but they have been sold out for months (two trips a year and those sell out within the first 2 months they open 18 months out) and have a wait list in the triple digits. 2014 means that I can convince George to come along for the first leg then do the last two on my own. Buenos Aires to Chile and then on to Florida.
Anyone out there understand the Jones Act and how it applies to cruising?
I am also contemplating doing a circle to the Arctic and 14 days to Iceland, Faroes and Norway next summer if anyone is interested in joining me (Amsterdam and UK for starting point).
And no – I am spending more time off ships than on. Trust me.
Finished the fourth shawl for the trip and need to wind yarn. For a change – I am going to knit a cowl.
and pack – luggage outside the cabin by 2300.
