Saturday, May 7, 2011 – At Sea – just beyond the Bahamas – Sunny – 78F

A beautiful day at sea…

Breakfast in the Windjammer Cafe consisted of oatmeal and a waffle.  No cottage cheese to be found during breakfast.

My first talk, “The CSI Phenomenon”, is scheduled at 10 AM in the Safari Club.  The venue is nice but the AV system had trouble projecting the whole slide.  About 110 people attended the talk and they were very interactive. 

Most of the afternoon was spent in the Solarium.  I gave up on the book - “Scarpetta” – because I just don’t like the reboot of the series and the new writing mode used by Patricia Cornwell.

At 4:30 PM, I went to the gym for a little workout (while Ellen was at Stretch Class).  I eventually did 40 minutes, 2.2 miles, and burned 250 calories.  I also did reps on some of the machines.

Dinner was in the Windjammer Cafe – Mexican Night (Enchiladas and Chile (actually sautéed veggies)).   Lemon meringue pie saved the meal; we had dessert on the back deck so we could see the great sunset.

After dinner, we listed to Anna Babak, pianist, in the Schooner Bar.  From there, we went to the first production show, “West End to Broadway”.  The show was great including some well known Broadway tunes, including “I Knew Him So Well” from “Chess” (below).

There was a great duet from Les Mis (“Let Him Live” and “On my Own”).  The closing number was “Copa” (below).

We again took in Len MacKay in the Schooner Bar.  We asked her to re-sing “Hallelujah”, which she did. 

The seas are still smooth…
