Day 3: Another Day at Sea
Once again, beautiful sunny skies and calm seas. Day three was another day at sea which tend to be my favorite. I could be sailing for several more days but I think most people are ready for our first port of Acapulco.
The Friends of Dorothy gathering was a huge success this evening Simply by moving the time up by 2.5 hours really made a difference. There were over 35 at this evenings event. Most of the folks under 30 had no idea what Friends of Dorothy meant so maybe it’s time to rethink that name. Another reason for more at this event was that Carnival actually printed GLBT after the event name which I think helped the younger generation. The piano music was also much more appropriate than the country western. Thank you Carnival!
I tended to lounge around most of the day drinking my cappuccinos and mingling with guest. My favorite part of travel is meeting new people and I met several from all over the U.S. I was starting to feel a little uncomfortable – or should I say fat – with all the meals that it was time to hit the gym.
You would think Dale would get enough sun living in Phoenix but he spent plenty of time lounging around the pools. The Spirit offer an ‘adults only’ section on the upper deck which is extremely private and quiet although there sure isn’t a lot of children on this sailing.
Now it’s time to plan my day in Acapulco. There won’t be any t-shirt or jewelry shops for us. We’re more travelers than tourist so we’ll be spending most of our time in Old Acapulco and enjoying the historical part of town with the locals. I won’t be drinking the water!
