12-8-16 a day at sea:
A day to wander around the ship and rest up a little before the next 3 port days. I suppose it's a neat idea to have these exercise equipment pieces along the walking deck, but they sure didn't get used much. In fact, the whole deck didn't get used much.
We happened to be free when the ping pong tournament was going on, so we entered it. We used to play a lot of ping pong in our basement about 100 years ago. I was pleasantly surprised to see that I could still play halfway decently. I actually got a little too confident and tried to get a little too aggressive. Ended up loosing 15-14 in my 2nd match after taking an 8-1 lead and leading all the way to 14. Ken even entered, but was eliminated in the first round. There were several guys that even brought their own ping pong paddles. The winner was one of them. Regardless, it was fun playing again!
There was a video on the Lido movie screen in the afternoon about the filming of BBC specials. As a photographer, I was interested in that. We watched it from the pool and jacuzzi. I had hope it would be a little more technical, but it was still interesting.
We also made it to the World Stage for a talk about what to see and do in Bonaire, Curacao and Aruba, even though we pretty much knew what we were going to do in Bonaire and Curacao.
Around 5pm, I headed up to my spot on level 12 to watch the sun set. Wasn't sure if there was going to be much of one with all the clouds, but stayed to see it anyway.
