Sea day on the North Sea

Update: yesterday's post that didn't get posted...

Fog was all we saw till late morning, with the fog horn being blown every so often to warn anything small that something rather large was barreling through. We didn't bump anything.

We emerged from the mist into sunshine just in time to join our fellow Mariner Society folks at a special luncheon for loyal Holland America travelers. We had a very enjoyable time with an interesting couple our age from Pensacola.

We attended the digital workshop after lunch. We are learning quite a few tricks with Win8. It actually does have some neat features, plus we are using a large touch screen computer that is quite awesome. Our luncheon buddy, a retired police captain, says the police force is now using a smaller version of that to use in and out of police cars, plus using as a navigational system. Technology changes pretty rapidly, so it is good staying on top of new stuff.

Dick then went to the office while I enjoyed a pearl seminar as we crossed over into the arctic circle. The temps are dropping a bit with us this far north. Dick opted NOT to join the polar bear pool plunge.

Internet was down all morning, so hopefully it is functional now.

Our seas are absolutely flat today, and we have a few wispy clouds up in the sky. Perfect! We visit another village tomorrow before hitting our northern most port on Saturday.

Life is smooth, y'all!

Glad you're having a great time. You've not mentioned the food. Not that you two are that into food, but well we're waiting for your favorite dishes.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. ☺
