Saturday, June 9, 2012 – At Sea – North Sea – Mostly Cloudy – low 60s

A so so day at sea…not too cold but cloudy for the most part.

It’s a day for reading and playing games (new obsession: “Solitaire” on our phones.

The North Sea is a bit choppy today so you know you’re on a ship.  The North Sea is also where you can see plenty of oil rigs pumping that plentiful oil.

My Final Talk: “Identifying the Famous and Infamous” pulls 50 plus attendees (2:30 PM in Cabaret Lounge).  Afterward, I spent some time chatting with Eric. 

I was able to get a very colorful sunset from the deck this evening.  This will be a rare event on our next cruise, when there will be no sunsets at all (above the Arctic Circle in the land of the Midnight Sun).  Enjoy it now.

Showtime tonight included a tribute to ABBA, with Eric and the gang in their 70s gear singing some of the groups best songs.  Eric, a former figure skater, did some rollerblading during the numbers – seeing a 6 ft 7 in skater on a small stage is certainly a sight.  It was a fun show.

Tomorrow we are leaving the Journey.  Ellen has us packed and we plan to walk off as soon as we are ready.
