Wednesday, February 9, 2011 – At Sea – Off the Coast of Panama – Sunny – 80s

Another beautiful day at sea (my thanks to the Captain). 

2-9 On Deck (Small)

I don’t have much of the morning to relax since my talk is at 11:15 AM (“DNA Testing:  A Genetic Eyewitness).  This time the crowd is even larger – estimating 220 – 230 attendees (based on the 300 person capacity).  The talk went well and soon we were off to a late lunch in the Windows Cafe.

A little reading on deck after lunch and then I catch Bill Fall’s presentation on the Panama Canal (near full house – the key presentation of the cruise). 

We are forgoing eating in the dining room tonight and instead have a quiet dinner in the Windows Cafe.  The Buffet is actually quite nice with tablecloths and candles and wine service. The main attraction is the fresh fish procured in San Juan Del Sur.  I think the fish is a Dorado (AKA Mahi Mahi) and it is being filleted and pan fried to order).  We try some – good but there is something about having that whole fish around.  I opt, instead, for pasta made to order.

We have our dinner out on the back deck.  There is no better place to eat especially when it is warm and no breeze.  The beautiful sunset was a bonus.

B and Z Dinner on deck (Small)

We don’t take in the Headliner tonight (Doug Cameron, violinist) since we have seen him several times in the past.  Instead, it is quality time with Carlos Avalon in the Mosaic Cafe.

Another nice day at sea…tomorrow the Canal.
