14 November We are in a public internet in Punta Delgada, in the Azores on the 5th day of our repositioning cruise between Barcelona and Ft. Lauderdale. Happily, we are with Dick and Carole Schneider and have been having a great time. The ship is the Navigator of the Seas and is a much larger ship than the last one, so there have been adjustments to make. There has been only one afternoon and evening of fairly heavy wind which causes us to walk the decks like a drunken sailor. And it was amazing to watch the waves in the swimming pools and all the water sloshing out over the top. Although we have been doing lots of walking, stair climbing, and some workouts in the exercise room, the food has been plentiful and good, and we will no doubt have to shave off some pounds when we get back. Once we leave here we have 6 days at sea, and then we will be in the Bahamas. Our return date is the 22nd in Ft. Lauderdale, and we fly back to SFO the same day. So no pictures until then, and a more complete report at that time too. The weather has been good, sunny and warm, and the entertainment too. So we are happy cruisers and we hope all of you blog readers are doing fine too.
