In an effort to clean out some of the paper in my life, I am converting my journals to digital format. I found this mini Journal in a stack of books on my shelf when moving out of my basement office and relocating upstairs. I am back dating the “post date” to the date of the event in an effort to keep a chronological record in my online journals.
Day 1 – Cruise to Nassau & Freeport Bahamas from Charleston, SC
6pm – Formal Dinner with my Mother, Carrie Courtney, my sister Heidi & her husband Chris
Song playing over the sound system: Dido – I will go down with this ship
No joke! This was playing. I thought it was funny but there were several other passengers aboard the vessel that looked rather uncomfortable during dinner. Probably not the best song choice for the first dinner out to sea.
Appetizers: Seared Tuna with Sun-dried Tomatoes & a Caesar Salad
Main Course: Brisket with Mashed Potatoes
Dessert: Warm Chocolate Melting Cake and a Cappaccino
Very tired after driving all day and boarding the ship. I went to bed at 9:30pm. Last check we were clipping along the Atlantic Ocean at 20 knots. I have no idea how fast that is and too tired to do the math.
