Sea Days on our Way to Guam

February 4, 2017 Paul Groves

Day 31 of 111. Pacific Ocean on our way to Guam

We have four sea days between the Marshall Islands and Guam. Sea days on our way to Guam mean a variety of onboard entertainers in the evening including singers, comedians, and an Olympic gymnast demonstrating and discussing his abilities. During the day there are cooking demonstrations, art lessons and informative history and biology lectures. Ron has been learning about Magellan and the real story of the Mutiny on the Bounty while Paul is painting and drawing. The sea is calm, but the weather is keeping everyone indoors. It is warm, humid and rainy outside.

Another food competition was presented today… a cupcake decorating competition between some of the very talented shipboard dancers. The singers were the judging panel. It was a lot of fun. Two of the dancers are from Russia, one from England and the other is from New York.

Here are some of the creative cupcakes from the onboard dancers.

One other interesting note (at least I think it is interesting) is that there will be a big Super Bowl Party with a live telecast of the game in the main theater. For us, however, the game is on Monday, not Sunday, because we have crossed the International Date Line a few days ago. Additionally, for us, the game begins at 8:30 a.m.!

Our latest watercolor project involves the tail of a whale. Coincidentally, the chefs at the sushi station made these great koi fish out of rice. Unfortunately, someone ate the orange fish’s tail.
