Day 3 at sea...

So today is a sea day and we are back in the cabin after attending a digital photo seminar that was fairly informative for us. Of course there are always folks there who hardly know how to turn the camera on, much less do anything with it, but they need to begin somewhere. I wish I had brought my instruction manual...since I didn’t I learned about some settings to look for and we have made some changes to my camera that I’ll now play with. For instance my camera focus was set too broad, so that is now narrowed and maybe will help in the dining room setting. I am not happy with the group photo from last sailing, but this was the best of the lot. That pesky wall light messed up the lighting focus...and yes, the request for Dick’s show and tell in his new hat will follow soon, even though he hates to pose. I’ll tell him it is setting research!
Our boat speed today is literally at a crawl, which means that we are at sea to avoid docking charges! The sea was pretty rolly last night, so there are quite a few ‘green’ folks today. Speaking of green, our TV color is mostly green. A green Obama looks very strange indeed! Dick just called and asked for someone to please come adjust our TV, and he got a lot of bull about ‘crossing the equator changed the magnetic polarity, making it impossible to fix.’ Helllloo...the guy didn’t like it when Dick told him we were on the Rhapsody last week and didn’t have this problem...and in this same hemisphere! We’ll survive this trauma.

Oh yes, we have a lovely verandah (did I mention that?) that we might get to use today, since the sun is now beginning to come out. I am looking across the water at mountains in the distance, and they must be 12 miles away, as that is the magic number in order for the casinos/shops to be open. You know what profit centers those are! One doesn’t get a dime outta us (casino); the other only gets a nominal amount:-)

"The Bourne Ultimatum" is playing in the cinema this afternoon, so we might go see that if we are awake. Dinner tonight is formal, followed by the Captain’s welcome party and then the show at 11p. It’ll be a late night. Like Empress Bee says, we’ll see if the show wins or our jammies win.
We are having a great Tuesday at sea. I hope your day is great!

Hey, y'all clean up pretty well, but Sandy, did you forget to take your spaghetti strap little black dress along? You'd have matched the other two gals then...! :-) (and been cold, too, right?)
Enjoy all the doin's today, sounds like a nice sea day. Hugs...

Have a terrific time. Big hug. :)
