We had a wonderful anniversary last night. The ship was having some sort of barbecue shin-dig for dinner by the pool deck. Jan and I wanted to have a romantic dinner so we ate ashore at a place called Salsa. It was wonderful! Had a bottle of a good South African wine and a meal of fish soup, gamba’s (a kind of shrimp I think) and a curry dish for two with Wahoo, beef, and other stuff I don’t remember. Topped off with Death by Chocolate. This will probably be remembered as one of our best anniversary meals ever.
Today we are in Aruba after a rough night at sea. Lots of wind, waves and rain but, luckily, neither Jan nor I had problems with it, other than being awakened by waves crashing against the porthole. This morning we took an excursion on a small submarine down to 130 feet depth. Saw glorious fish and coral. Jan and a new friend then went shopping – something available in abundance in Oranjestad.
We hear about the bad weather hack in the states. We don’t think our being in a warm place is in any way the cause of the storms.
Next – two days at sea heading towards Panama.
