Actually made it to breakfast this morning! Yay for us!
I stayed on deck to drink coffee while Mike walked. I then did my two miles while he hung out on the balcony. As you can see we are still rolling! Some of the troughs appear to be higher than than second deck where the promenade / walking track is located The video above was taken from our room which is one deck higher.
After I had finished we had lunch from the poolside grill. Above is my grilled tuna with beet salad, black bean salad and shredded cabbage with bacon and cardamom (meh). How healthy!
While Mike returned to the room to check on finances (and methinks a nap) I laid by the pool. It was a lovely day, mid 70s, sunny and windy. To keep up with him I had double lobsters too…except mine were of the liquid variety-a tropical drink called a rock lobster.
For dinner this evening we ate again in the Chef’s Table. This time the menu is a historic journey through time. We shared a table with a couple from Houston and another from the south of England. Enjoyable conversation and a tasty meal. With the exception of the amuse which was just ok, I thought the other courses were quite good.
Tomorrow we see land for the first time in eight days! We are scheduled to be in Funchal, Madeira before 8 am. Hopefully the two fellow CruiseCritics who missed the ship in San Juan and then again in Sint Maarten will be boarding. They arrived in Funchal yesterday and I am sure will be happy to finally be caught up!
Here’s dinner tonight:
Amuse-cucumber mousse with foam
Oxtail Consume’ after they poured in the consume’
Granita (tasty this time!)
Lamb (well at least three morsels-we all thought another morsel or two would have been welcome)
Chocolate and Nut bar with pistachio gelato
