Alaska Cruise Days three and Four
We've been at see for two days and unwilling to pay the exorbitant Internet access fees. Thus the blog was suspended until we reached Juneau and the public wifi afforded by the Juneau Public Library.
The end of day two was uneventful; no different than residing in a floating hotel. Th accommodations are not spacious, but are certainly comfortable. Gels had her hair done at the inboard shop then we went to diner informal attire and were seated with two other couple close to our age, both experienced cruisers. John and Rosemary are from San Pedro andTerry and Carol are from Ft. myers, Fla.
We woke Tuesday morning to a moving boat, and after breakfast retreated to the Crow's Nest, the topmost and forward most public room on the boat. from therese watched the boat sail out of Resurrection Bay and felt the seas getting rougher and rougher.
Helen spent most of the day sleeping in the cabin, while I explored the ship and read some in the library. Except for lunch at the Rotterdam room where we were seated with two older couples from Maine and Florida (via New Jersey) After dinner, a casual affair at a private table, we visited the casino. Won some at blackjack.
I slept well, having finished off our open bottle of chianti, doing well at blackjack and being gently rocked by the boat.
One thing i'll say about a rocking boat is that it's very difficult to run on a treadmill on one.
Wednesday morning we are still at sea. We're going to skip our first scheduled stop and head straight for Juneau, according the captain (who speaks a very clipped and emotionless English - he sounds more like a prison commandant than a ship captain). We're also going to skip Glacier Bay.
Winds blew up from the west during the day, adding a good sideways roll to the ship to accompany the fore and aft motion we're already enduring.
We arose Thursday morning to find ourselves at the dock in Juneau. The boat was as still as a rock.
P.S. My bgs have been very good despite the a undone of food and relative lack of exercise. It's all because of paying attention.
