Symphony Live, March 9th to 16th - We’re Bach! A sharp review with flat Cs.

Recommended Posts

Today we swam with the Rays.  Thankfully I didn’t pull a Steve Irwin. 

 

Pics to come later tonight.

Our alarm went off at 7 :15 and it was still dark outside. Thankfully we didn’t have to leave until the sun was up.

Andrew, Just found your thread! Thanks again for bringing us along! Congrats to Owen on his hockey and his improved riding! 

Did I see your post correctly saying we could use Cards from home at Starbucks?

Thanks following and catching up. It has been reported many times by others, so since everything on line is true I gotta go with yes.

Yes we did.  Hope you had an amazing day.  And you are just in time for Kankle Watch, March 2019 Edition.  

 

We survived, my ankles not so much.  Might be a light night for me.

Andrew i suffer from the same and quite often while asea a bout with gout will arise, have found eating strawberries or cherries to be helpful, so each morning i get a small bowl of sliced strawberries and with my dinner dessert i ask for a small bowl of sliced strawberries which all servers have provided when i asked.

Lastly my doc told me wearing flip-flops does not help the issues so i now were Keen Uneeks as they provide some support and are really comfortable meshed shoe that are made in many colors, not cheap but worth the comfort.

BTW great Live thread and great pics, thanks for sharing with us.

Cheers...

Scott

You are most welcome. We meet a great family and friends travelling from Kansas and Minnesota.  Gotta think they were happy to be far away from the cold weather too.

Thanks for all the great tips Scott. This sailing has been a bit more problematic for me, with the extra drinks. Straight water consumption has not been as much as normal. I also brought Epson salts so tonight I might be giving my dogs a soak, on top of the herbal anti-inflammation pills.

Andrew- just had a fantastic dinner in Hooked.  If you haven’t tried it yet, I hope you can find the chance to give it a try. 

Marci.

Agreed, regarding Hiro. What an amazing show.

 

Lisa though she say some crazy people below waving. Funny thing is we played tonight and waved like fools at our cabin steward.

Everybody Loves Rays today was fun. Minutes from the Port by taxi.

 

First they gave us a safety demo on a stuffy and information about the Rays

We then went out and got to feed them, pet them and have photos taken with them. Obviously by them.😉. When that portion was done went out into a larger pen and swam with larger ones and two nurse sharks. 

 

I didn’t bring the GoPro as I though we wouldn’t be allowed to use it. I was wrong, we could have used it in the larger second pen. 

 

I did get these coup,e pics from the shore though.

The barb that killed Steve Irwin was like this.  It’s no wonder he died rom complications of removing it on site VS at the hospital.

We headed back to Senior Frogs after a break and caught up with Rick. Senior Frogs was a blast. We returned back to the ship to do some small boat spotting.
