Marathon to Hawaii

Day 17 of 111. Pacific Ocean
Hello everyone. This is Ron and I’m putting my two cents into the Blog.
We have five sea days between San Diego and Hawaii. Today we started walking a marathon for the next five days, by then we’ll be at Hilo, HI. We’ll walk six miles each day (20 laps around the ship) for four days and then two miles (seven laps) for the last day for a total of 26 miles. Today’s walk took me about 1 and 1/2 hours.

At the end of the five days, we’ll receive 2,000 Grand dollars which we can use to buy great stuff (almost as good as the Oakridge Bingo door prizes 😄)! With all this money we can buy $10 Amazon gift cards, key chains, memory cards , etc. and if we get a lot more money, we can even buy a Kindle Fire!

We also have several Hawaiian ambassadors on board (we had Mexican ambassadors on board this last week) who will be teaching us how to make leis, play the ukulele, and dance the hula! Should be a lot of fun.
