Unfortunately, the captain just announced that we have a med evac to do, so we had to turn around and head back to Corfu after being outbound for five hours. He says that this will not interfere with our arrival in Malta on Sunday. I sure feel sorry for the patient and his/her family.
Dick and I rode the city bus into downtown Corfu this morning with the intention of just walking, looking and doing some major people watching. We wound up in the outdoor cafe where we sat with friends Mike/Jennie and Loyal/Margie on the Greek Isle cruise we did in ‘07. We love wandering the narrow streets and seeing all the *stuff* to tempt the tourists. Balsamic vinegar is going home with us…big spenders!
Bee, the food is GOOD; no one to ‘stalk’; shows are so-so, but that is a trade off on the small ships. This ship is the former R8 (Renaissance) and has beautiful appointments all throughout…very nice woodwork, etc. Our stateroom window is off to the side, not over our bed, and was labeled ‘obstructive view.’ Well, this view is VERY obstructed by the life boat, more so than on some other ships we have been on, but that is OK. We are managing. I know you feel our discomfort:-)
Dick watched blackjack awhile after dinner, but didn’t participate. I decided to come back to the room and check email and do a blog update. I have my priorities!
The weather has been fantastic—no rain at all. Amazing. Brian, we are doing quite well. Thanks for taking care of Missy…are you watering my plants??? Miss you guys…and miss reading all my fave blogs. I hate this paying by the minute stuff! I am opening up a blog or two each day and reading offline…I don’t want to get too far behind! Keep commenting and staying in touch that way.
