December 6, 2019 – At Sea – Caribbean Sea – Enroute to Ft. Lauderdale – Hazy Clouds – warm

Slept a little better – the seas are still smooth and the room is still quiet. 

Breakfast was still very good up in the Oceanview Café.  Today the waffle was cooked just right and the eggs were a bit runny but tasty.  Not sure what they put into the scrambled eggs to make them so good - maybe I don't want to know.

I went to the theater a little early to catch some of Eddy’s “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Wales” – we heard some of it before but there are still some very funny parts.  Eddy did share some of his background but with Eddy, you can never tell where the facts end and the improv begins.

I followed at 11:15 AM with my third talk, “Forensics and History: Identifying the Famous and Infamous”.  The turnout was better than the last talk but I didn’t do a headcount – I’m estimating that this crowd would have filled Celebrity Central on a Solstice Class ship.  I chatted with some of the attendees afterward – the talk got positive comments.

Today, we had our usual lunch of pizza and salad up in the Oceanview Café and spent the afternoon in the quiet of the Solarium reading.

Dinner tonight was at the Tuscan Restaurant – I had the grilled mushroom and Blue Cheese casserole appetizers (good), the tomato bisque soup (good), and the pecan crusted halibut (did not like it – undercooked) and mushroom risotto (excellent).  Ellen had the mango fruit cocktail (good) and the broiled salmon.

We went to the theater for showtime - tonight's performer is Ashlie Amber Harris.  She is a small woman with big hair and a big voice.  Unfortunately, her big voice was super amped and we could not stay for the whole show.  Her show was a tribute to Whitney Houston and she did a great job on the songs we did hear.

The rest of the evening was spent in the quiet confines of our wonderful stateroom.
