Transatlantic – Day Three

I’ve been to Malaga, Spain a few times in the past on other transatlantic cruises.  Because of that, I did not pay for any shore excursion.  I decided that I was going to go it on my own.  I am sooooo very glad I made that decision because I would have lost the money I put on the excursion when I canceled at the last minute.

I remember a year when Malaga was having record heat.  Today, on the other hand, was extremely cold and rainy all day.  There was no way I was leaving the ship just to get soaked and cold and risk getting sick.  So, I stayed on board.

When I finished breakfast, instead of leaving the ship, I went to one of the lounges on board and read a book.  After an hour or so, I came back to my stateroom only to find this:

I was really surprised, to say the least.  There was no card at all with the decorations so I will need to find who arranged to have my room decorated for my birthday.  Until I can find out to thank that person, kindly allow me to say “Thank You” on this blog page. 🙂

Tonight, I’m signed up for the Comedy Shop show.  However, it’s at 9:15 p.m. and I do not know if I am going to last that long.  I might skip it.  Then again, I might not.  You never know how I’ll feel then.  Tomorrow, I will be seeing the matinee of Hairspray and the Headliner show, “Hector is Magic”.

ADDENDUM:  I did go to the comedy show.  Probably should have skipped it.  Way too much inappropriate language.  Now, I’m not a prude and any of my friends, sadly, could tell you that.  However, I think there’s a big difference using foul language when it makes some comedic sense versus someone just slinging a log of foul language and situations around just because they can.  There were some good laughs in the show but a lot of the material was unnecessary.

My appetizer for dinner tonight was the french onion soup.  This cauldron of bubbly goodness was brought to my table.  I think it had the equivalent of a cheese plate inside.  Ooey, gooey goodness.

This evening at dinner, my wait staff surprised me with a birthday cake after the meal.  Even though I haven’t been ordering desserts, I ate it.  It was mighty fudgy and mighty good.

Tonight, at approximately 10:00 p.m., we will pass through the Straits of Gibraltar and then head out into the open Atlantic Ocean on our way to Florida.  Tomorrow is the first of nine sea days.  I am looking forward to each and every one of them!

g’night, all
