So we went to the island of Corfu. We got there at the usual time of around 8am and they started disembarking soon after. We had no official tour set up for this port so we just took the ship shuttle offered and went to the town. The bus dropped us off right next to an old fort sitting on a point offering some sort of protection to the town in days past. You could walk all the way to the top for a great vantage point of the town but Mom said no to that. So I was content to wander about the lower portion, taking pictures of walls, coastline and massive architectural structures from unique angles to add interest to much of what we had seen in places before. I put Karen in a few shots to add excitement.
We then left there and headed through a park to the town for a bit of shopping. We did a small circle through the streets, all while I listened to constant questioning, "What time is it?

We stopped and talked to Helen and Leo from our Santorini trip and then boarded the bus back to the ship, a trip lasting 20 minutes or so. Some guy at the port was frantically looking for his ship card to clear customs and board. His wife was trying to find it for him when security took him away.
The Internet was down so I couldn't post any new blog entries. We watched a couple of shows and listened to music by the pool, then went back to the room for the night.
One activity that has kept me somewhat amused since we began our journey is watching for T shirt violators, you know, those that wear a t shirt in the same place and time that they bought it. According to TJ, "That's not right!" At least wait until the next port. Mom can tell you that I have strictly adhered to the sanctions set forth by TJ on previous biker runs and have not violated that sacred pact we established years ago.
Mom is looking forward to tomorrow, a sea day. Finally, rest.
