January 2, 2022 – At Sea – Sailing to Antiqua – Partly Cloudy – 82F

There was something not right about my meal because the headache persisted – I got up early and waited until 7 AM to go to the Windows Café.  The veranda didn’t open for another 30 minutes so I moved my table – the first one on the port side away from my neighbor.  I had two pancakes and one egg over medium today.  They were good but I did not intend to stay up there any longer than needed.  Looks like COVID has gotten into my head.

The COVID rules in St John’s involve wearing a mask all the time.  We got off last time, but we decided not to this time around.  We had second thoughts about not getting off since we were docked at a different pier (Heritage South Pier) this time and the entrance to the shopping area looked a lot nicer.  The Seven Seas Splendor is docked across from us.

I have gotten behind a bit in logging this trip, but I can say that we did not go to the show tonight – “Jump Jive and Swing” – because the last time we saw it the band was just a bit loud.  Instead, we spent time up in the Living Room but away from people on the couches against the starboard windows.

The captain continues to give updates on COVID at dinner.  I think the communication is a good thing. We found out that our waiter, Tin, was in isolation.  Armando is once again handling our dinner needs.

We also got word that we would be stopping in Tortola BVI (instead of the long-gone San Juan PR, with a reported positivity rate of 27 percent). 

I got a very nice shot of the sail away from Antigua.

People signed up for Tortola excursions had to be tested for COVID before being allowed on the excursions.  We were up on Deck 9 sitting on seats near the pool when the testing crew and passengers showed up. 

We headed for the peaceful confines of our room.

Seas are calm.
