NCL Sun – Day 19 – On the edge of the Sun

Sea day here. The last one and also the last full day of the cruise.

There was something flitting through my mind about what I thought was a song about “third rock from the Sun” which actually turned out to be not a song but a TV Sitcom which I haven’t ever seen. Using my favorite resource (Wiki link here) I read through all of the information and decided that I hadn’t missed anything. This is what brought on my original chain of thought…

See that nice sun? See that row of lovely big portholes that goes right through the middle? I counted from the outside, then confirmed from looking at the paint job which has dark red curving right along the edge of my porthole. Not the third rock specifically, but one of four and the most aft of the batch, from there the paint does the ribbon thing before being overlaid by the loop…. and I can tell exactly were I am because of the obvious insert of decks…

Anyway – I packed last night so my day has been quiet and comfortable.  NCL wants the bags out by 2000 so that isn’t really a problem. I don’t feel like hauling my bag up the 13 steps to the main deck so will let the crew do the handling and hauling. I have an 0820 transfer to MIA so will be off at a reasonable time.

Otherwise – found that the main atrium walls had run out of space

and additional plaques have been added to

this quiet corner.

For those not familiar with the process – each port normally gifts a plaque to a ship on its first arrival in their port. New ships on a simple route have few. And older ship like the Sun has had years and multiple routes to accumulate quite a showing.

I might/might not be able to check in tomorrow. If both my flights are on time, I will have enough of a break in Austin where I change plans to actually post on time. It is likely to be very early on Saturday morning when I actually get home.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
