Day Two, First Sunrise

Being a west coast girl I will never get used to seeing the sun rising over the water. But I didn’t want to miss it this morning so I woke early and threw the curtains open and waited eagerly to see this orange ball rise up from the sea.

I had a wonderful breakfast delivered to my stateroom and woofed it down like I hadn’t eaten in weeks… then promptly went back to bed and slept until 10 a.m. I could get used to this life.

A little later I strolled around the ship and enjoyed that wonderful sea breeze blowing through my hair.

We are about halfway to Cuba as I write this, so far logging 341 nautical miles. We move through the water between 19 – 20 knots and will make port in Nassau on Wednesday morning.

Met more interesting people at lunch today, a couple from Vancouver and a another couple from Houston. So far most of the people I have met will be taking the ship all the way to Singapore and then travel on to places like China and Thailand.

I love listening to people talk but it is a stretch for this hermit to be conversational, I surprise myself every now and again though. Am I the only person on this earth to find socializing an effort?


  1. As a hermit, I share your angst. But halfway to Cuba sounds like a great place to be. It looks lovely. Where is your friend?

  2. Hi Annie - I will be following your adventures! It's a joy so far.

  3. Thanks Kathy nice to have you with me.

  4. Love the pictures and stories around them. Keep 'em coming!

  5. Thanks Mark for letting me know you are here. Hope all the family is well back in California.
