Mommy and Daddy at the champagne fountain party waiting for dinner.
Hey girls, Mommy here. Today we had a sea day so we Were on the ship all day and a relaxing day it was after walking in all the previous ports. We woke up early and went to breakfast so that we would be hungry for the English Pub lunch. After breakfast and a cup of coffee out on the balcony, it was time for your Daddy's favorite time of day...nap time. I actually also was ready for a nap too. After the relaxing nap we went out to see about getting our Pub lunch. It was busy so we decided we could use an appetizer before lunch. Pizza was our appetizer for the day. After eating we went back to check out the lunch situation but it was STILL busy so we went to the International Cafe and got a second appetizer and then headed to the casino. We won some money and decided that since luck was with us that we might as well try our luck with the Pub lunch. And luck was indeed with us as the Pub had cleared out and we were immediately seated for our delicious fish and chips. After lunch Daddy decided to do some more exploring and I went to find a great place to read for the afternoon. I went to the Atrium area and read while listening to a piano player. This afternoon back on the balcony (which is one of my favorite places unless it is a rough sea) I saw a strange site. I saw something in the water off in the distance that looked kind of like birds sitting on top of the water but the birds looked like they were going down into the water and then back up. I quickly called to Daddy and he immediately got excited! They were a group of dolphins! What I had thought were birds off in the distance was actually their fins going in and out of the water as they were swimming. These were the first dolphins that we have seen. Soon after we figured out that we were seeing dolphins the bridge of the ship came on the intercom to announce that dolphins were passing us by. After an enjoyable afternoon, it was time to get ready for dinner. Tonight was our first formal night. So Mommy and Daddy got all dressed up with Daddy in a Tux and me in my fancy gown and shoes that you love to try on. Since it was formal night there were photographers everywhere. We decided sure it might be fun to have a picture of us all dressed up. The photographer was insane!! After the 10th different pose we were ready to be done as there were so many other people waiting for their own insane momement with the photographer. There was a champagne waterfall party that was packed but fortunatly we found a seat in Vines (the wine bar) for a drink and watched the fun. It was soo neat. There were champagne glasses stacked into a huge tower and then champagne was poured in to the top glass to flow over the others and so it looked like a waterfall as the champagne was flowing down to the bottom glasses. After watching people climbing steps up to the top of the waterfall to pour champagne into the waterfall, it was time to head out to the Crown Grill, one of the specialty restaurants. It was absolutly fantastic or scrumtrilescent as your daddy would say. After being tummmy stuffed we were ready to head back to our room and go to sleep. Tomorrow we will be back in port at Gibraltar to see the famous rock of Gibraltar. Love you guys!!
