DAY 2 ON THE PACIFIC
Enjoying a great time way out in the Earth's Blue Eye. Now 1300 km from Seattle and 3100 km until we reach Honolulu on Thursday morning. And we haven't seen one single ship or one single bird since we left Seattle. All the fantastic wildlife is beneath us. Where we are right now the depth is 3.859 m.
And the sea is still somewhat agitated, so we all pretend that we are active members of John Cleese's Institute for Odd Walking! Good fun!
The drinks are generally better than the food. So we agree with Frank Sinatra who once said: I feel sorry for the people, who do not drink. The feeling they have when they wake up in the morning is about as good as it gets the whole day!!
As we have mostly Americans on board - all friendly and curious about why we have come all this way - you also see quite a few, esp. ladies, who have taken forms, where it is easier to jump over them than walking around them! And this gives me the positive and rare feeling of being one of the lightweighters around :-)
Today we will also try out the ship's fantastic fitness center. It is placed on the 12th floor up front. So when you are on your bike you have the captain's look ahead. And the more energy you put into your biking, the faster the ship will sail, of course :-)
