We awoke this morning well on our way back to Peru and our flight home. Well on our way, however, doesn’t mean we are close. It is well over 2000 miles to Lima and that translates to four successive days of cruising through the South Pacific.
Getting a few chores out of the way, John and Jerry both found their way to the laundry room right after breakfast. Wash and dry a couple of loads and we are good for the rest of the trip!
The rest of the day was relaxing and reading. The day was topped off with all of us enjoying happy hour at the Grand Bar followed by a fantastic dinner at Toscana Italian restaurant.
Another relaxing day on board. Breakfast in the Grand Dining Room was followed by reading, cross-stitching, walking the track and watching TV. The four of us met on the balcony of the Terrace Café for lunch. The afternoon was more of the same...reading, cross-stitching, and TV...plus a nap! At 6:30, we met once more at Toscana for a two and a half hour Italian dinner. Beyond that, we walked outside on the windy deck to look at the southern sky and then it was time to retire.
May 3 and May 4:
We spend two more days eating, reading, walking the decks, playing UNO, and enjoying happy hours in the afternoons. Four days at sea is a bit long. We can’t wait to get to Callao port near Lima, Peru!
