A windy day at sea – winds across the deck at 42 kts. Looks like it might have rained overnight since the decks and deck chairs on Deck 6 are wet.
After breakfast in the Cafe, I caught most of Uncle Marty’s final talk on Panama – General Noriega and the Carter Panama Canal Treaty.
The Pacific Ocean and a cool camera artifact
My fifth talk - “Search for the Unknown Titanic Child” was scheduled for the Theater at 2:30 PM. Again, the attendance was good (going to call it 300 attendees because it is too difficult to count the people) and the interaction was excellent. After the talk, one of the attendees – a rocket engineer – told me that 10 and 24 zeroes is called a “yotta” so the total LR for the Tsar was 100 yotta. I told him I would share that with the audience before the cruise was over and he indicated he would give me a practical analogy for that large number.
The rest of the afternoon was spent on the outside decks and then dinner was in the Islands Cafe. A great sunset and evening added to the experience.
Dinner out on the Back Deck
The headliner tonight is Antonio Solchi – an excellent pianist. He is very laid back but entertaining. His twist on things is to highlight individuals from the band in his show. I also liked the fact that he played songs that had good melodies and were recognizable.
Antonio Solchi – pianist extraordinaire
Tonight is the interactive 70s show so John G came out in full 70s regalia including a wig. I caught it on my phone.
Groovy John Grantham
After the show, we listened to the Celebration Band in the Rendezvous Lounge. There is something about the band that is messing with my phone’s camera. Every time I try to take a picture of them playing, the camera goes to the home screen. I got lucky with the picture below. Mysterious forces at work? – you tell me.
Hard to shoot Celebration Band
I finished my second book of the cruise, Lee Childs’ book “Jack Reacher: Die Trying” – I am really getting into the Reacher novels.
Nice day at sea…
