September 26 Pacific Ocean, at Sea

Biking the Pacific Ocean!

sunny

Up early and off to the track, did my 16 laps which is 2 miles, followed by a swim. After a quick shower, we headed to poolside for a healthy light brunch and hung out at the pool for a couple of hours. Did a little time on the bikes, because this is our bike trip, right?

After our grooming we attended a session on The History of the French Polynesian Islands, by Mary Amanda. She is an excellent presenter, informative, some humour, and interesting.

And of course by now it’s time for another meal! Today we chose to eat in the Ocean Cafe which is cafeteria style. Lots of choices, nicely presented and quite delicious...like I needed another meal so soon!

In the afternoon I went to the Theatre to a performance by Antonio Salci. He is a pianist and entertainer, and WOW it was amazing! I could have listened to him for hours; his piano talent is beyond imagination!! (Lloyd, you would have loved this!)

We had dinner in the BLU restaurant (yes, another big meal...it’s why I am walking miles every morning!), delicious fresh salad and rib eye steak done to perfection, and my wine was pretty good too. (We have decided, in the interest of our thighs, to only treat ourselves to dessert if we get over 10,000 steps the day before. And we have made a pact to only use the stairs, no elevators, unless our legs are screaming loud enough for others to hear haha. Yesterday I had 12,818 steps and climbed 29 flights of steps). So we shared a creme brûlée which was beyond divine!

After dinner we hung out at the Martini Bar because we have made friends with the bartenders who are delightful young Philippine fellows, and one with Ukrainian heritage. Sharon has been speaking Polish/Ukrainian with him, well actually he’s teaching us some Ukrainian words. We enjoy watching them make martinis with a flourish, including throwing bottles into the air and pouring several martinis at once, quite a show. And we might have spent a little time in the Casino...just saying...

I then ventured on to a show, A Tribute to Elvis with a young singer/guitarist named Danny Smart. He is a very talented young entertainer; we have enjoyed a few of his shows. Danny did a wonderful job with the Elvis songs and I satisfied my need for music and singing!! (TNT group would have loved this show!)

And that’s the end of a busy, full, fun day at sea, the second of 5 straight sea days. More to come...Carol on the go
