Just a lazy day at sea
My first talk - “The CSI Phenomenon” is scheduled for 3:00 PM in Celebrity Central. I went to Denny Whitford’s first talk in the morning on “Sea Waves” and he pulled a pretty good crowd. I got to the venue about 20 minutes early to make sure that the AV set up worked OK and there were about 20 people there already. The place was full by start time (Celebrity Central holds 225 people). I also had a large number of folks in wheelchairs – the venue is able to accommodate folks in chairs. The crowd consisted of about 50 percent fans (a little lower than usual) but enough for a critical mass of comment and interaction.
Ian introduced me and the crowd seemed like a warm and enthusiastic group. The talk went well and I previewed upcoming talks at the end. I think they will come back.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing. Dinner in the restaurant – we are still looking for a permanent table but tonight we are downstairs and right in the middle – very noisy.
