I titled the blog with a feeling of positivity. It shows excitement to be back to work. My wife and I were on a nine-day cruise through Maine and Canada. Nine days means you need to get your sea legs!
Cruises are obviously associated with lots of food. I’m not sure why they (food service) thought that I needed this many free white and dark chocolate strawberries delivered to the room. This was just one day’s delivery! Free strawberries! (I just noticed the Joel Bieber pen in the background. See!)
My confession? I am not posting pictures of the cupcakes that they delivered. My only defense is that I did not order them… and who wants cupcakes to go to waste?
The ship offers a bridge tour to show the brains of the ship’s operation. I found the ship’s steering wheel to be a bit underwhelming.
It is rare that the ship is guided manually. Normally the ship, Grandeur of the Seas, is guided by computer. There were approximately 2200 passengers and 800 crew. A lot of moving parts
At the end of the cruise, the chef was reciting all the food that was eaten during the trip. I was amazed. Of course, I amazed myself with my eating capability. Resume material!
I just rambled today to say that I am glad to back. Tomorrow, I will blog on one of the stops on the cruise. Every place has its curious history.
For our pic o’ day, I am posting one of the Chris Christie memes. If you haven’t read about how he closed the beach and still enjoyed it, here is the Washington Post story . Personally, I felt a bit like this during the cruise. Well… maybe a little “non-svelte”? Now he has become a national joke posting.
