At Sea – March 22, 2018
I started my day with water aerobics. We had 15 present including Shane and his grandmother. He is about 10 and doing the entire world cruise with his grandparents. He is a very polite young man.
There were about ten of us at Sit and Stitch. I am binding off my sock (2nd pair) and having trouble making it very stretchy.
We tied for first place in morning trivia. We had 14 and would have had 15 but we over-analyzed the question about where chopsticks originated and did not pick the obvious answer – China – which was also the correct one.
1)Yerevan, one of the oldest continuously inhabited city, is the capital of which country?
2)What is the first commercial product to have a bar code?
3)Who was the one-hit wonder who wrote and sang “Spirit in the Sky”?
4)Who was the Formula 1 driver nicknamed “The Flying Scot”?
5)What was Elvis’ first movie?
We had the shortest spring ever. After only one full day of spring it is now fall. At 1:06 pm we crossed the equator for the third time and are now in the southern hemisphere and autumn has begun.
Ate lunch with Cyndi and Ed and then made the Tiger Eye bracelet with them.
Sat by the pool and read and knitted after crafts. While sitting by the pool I heard a rumor that all of the seating in the Queen’s Lounge on deck 4 was going to be replaced during the drydock. Stadium-style seats will be installed which would definitely make it easier to see the stage. The rumor did not include whether these seats would be movable or if the dance floor will be removed.
Our showing in afternoon trivia was not great. We had 11 and three teams tied with 15 out of 17.
1)What fishing industry results in the death of thousands of dolphins?
2)What has four true varieties – black, white, green, and oolong?
3)What are the letters “e” and “o” worth in Scrabble?
4)What is the national animal of South Africa?
5)Which sign of the zodiac is represented by the bull?
After trivia I came back to my cabin to watch Barbara’s talk about the Seychelles and knit for a while.
It seems Herb has joined our dinner table permanently. I had fried cheddar, pork tenderloin, and a caramel sundae for dessert.
The show tonight was the Jukebox Rogues and once again they were excellent.
We gain another hour tonight and have one more day at sea before getting to the Seychelles.

Smooth sailing until next time!
