We ate in the Lido again to be ready for the Casino drawing. I had a noodle bowl with lamb. Chuck had some breaded haddock. We both went to the salad bar for salads. I like that HAL creates your salad for you instead of everyone handling the serving tongs and spoons. They have a lot of ingredients for your salad choices. My favorites – artichokes, dried cranberries, and blue cheese crumbles.
Tonight, the Casino did call Chuck’s name and he won $50.00 for playing the game. Glad we were there.
Tonight’s entertainment on the main stage was the BBC film: Blue Planet II. We have seen it a number of times so we skipped it tonight. We chose to go to the Rolling Stone Lounge. Shelby Sikes, the lead female singer, does a wonderful rendition of Tennessee Whiskey.
At 11:00 pm we called it a night. It was still very light outside.
This morning was overcast but it was not snowing. By the time we finished breakfast, we were in Wilhelmina Bay (named after Queen Wilhelmina) but many people call it Whale – mina Bay. We were not disappointed.
One whale got particularly close to the ship.
They were vocal today also.
We also had some icebergs pass by that were taller than the ship.
My Fitbit indicated I had walked over 4 miles just walking around on the Promenade deck today. I needed the exercise in order to be ready for our Pinnacle Grill meal tonight. Time to get ready.
