Where I stayed
After the towel class we went and played mini golf on the upper deck. It was funny because the wind was really strong and kept blowing the ball around. A tropical storm was forming and we hit the tail end of it. The winds were crazy, about forty miles and hour or so, and the rain was so strong it felt like hail. We sat on the deck behind a wall of plastic windows, so we were shielded. Later we went to the bar and saw the tropical storm warnings on TV
Yesterday was a pretty lazy day. We spent hours on the deck and made it to a pizza lunch with a bunch of people who's rooms were on the same level as mine. I meant to make it to salsa classes and a volleyball game, but those required way too much energy. This morning we left early and John gave me a ride to the airport, which sure beat the airport shuttle. We stopped in a cute little town, I think called Spring, and got lunch. It was cute, but I certainly won't miss the Texas humidity. We saw a place with fried oreos, twinkies, and snickers bars. John says they're really good, but I think it sounds like a lot of heartburn.
I've heard various things about cruise ships. Most people have told me that you hardly feel the boat moving, although this certainly wasn't the case the first day of the cruise. We definitely felt the boat moving and we were all joking that we couldn't tell if it was the boat or the alcohol that was making us crash into each other and the walls. It was definitely the boat because most of us hadn't had that much to drink yet. By the second day it was much better and easier to walk around. We may have just gotten use to it, but I think that the water was a lot choppier that first day. It wasn't enough to make any of us sick though. Anyway, this was a great vacation. In a way I don't want to leave but in a way I was ready to get off the boat. I'm sure I'll try cruising again, but next time I'll go for a cruise with more ports of call.
