It takes about 5 hours to get out of the Chesapeake Bay. A special pilot gets on at each port to guide the ship where it is suppose to go.
We sailed for 2 days with the first stop at Port Canaveral We got off and went to Cocoa Beach but didn't stay to long as it must have been in the 90s.
The paper with the goings on for the next day. Always two mints.
Every night a new animal.
Daughter would come up when she got up and then have breakfast and decide what we would do for the day. Mostly go out on the deck and lay in the sun or get in the hot tub and talk with everyone. That is one thing I found out. Everyone was so friendly. We talked to one couple from Quebec Canada. Another time at lunch in the dinning hall we sat with a couple and their 10 year old daughter from Belgium. Did you know that Belgium waffles are really a desert? They never eat them for breakfast.
this was when we had gotten off last Sunday and were waiting for the firebnd to come and pick us up. 11 floors and that doesn't count the lower floors where the food is stored and prepared and the crew quarters are.
Just wanted you all to know that I had a wonderful 80th Birthday. and yes, I got a small piece of fancy cake with a candle and the waiters sang Happy Birthday.
My son came and got me at my Daughters on Monday and will be here until the middle of next week. So have a week with each of them. How blessed I am. Thanks for stopping by.
