At Sea

With the entire world closed, it looks like it may be awhile before I can do any traveling. With that in mind, I’m re-posting from my original blog. I created the blog to keep family informed while I took my mom on a cruise to Greece.

Day 6:

Here is a shot of mom at the Grand Canal in Venice on Saturday.

We had breakfast at the hotel, good ol fashioned American breakfast with eggs, sausage, bacon, gooey pastries and some fruit to make mom happy. After Sunday dinner, it was a pleasant change.

We went to the port at 12:30, and along with 2500 others waited to board the ship. Not too bad, you might think they do this all the time.

As soon as we got on board, they opened the buffet. Not bad, I had a little this and that. The mahi-mahi was very good.

We departed Venice at 6 pm and headed to sea. Leaving port the view was nice. We sat on the balcony and watched as we went past Venice. It was a little cold, Mom wrapped herself in a blanket and we had champagne and hor’devores as we sailed past. Mom wouldn’t touch the caviar so more for me.

Went to the evening show, it sucked. Mime is a lost art, it should stay that way.
