April 10th, 2016 - Day 8 - Cruising the East China Sea in route to Hiroshima, Japan

We woke up cruising the East China Sea. We had breakfast at the Terrace Café.  Jim enjoys going up early to read the LA Times on his tablet and having strong Americana coffee.

Jim had oatmeal and fruit and a muffin and Pat had fruit and a sticky bun.  Of course, you know,  the fruit counteracts the sticky bun calories.  We both had tomato juice.

For lunch we ate in the Grand Dining Room. Jim had Tuscan-Stlye Bean soup and Oceania's Caesar Salad with Chicken.  Pat had a Tomato and Mozzarella Panini and French fries.  For dessert Jim is had pistachio ice cream and Pat had Nougat ice cream.

During lunch Jim had a Twitter feed going listening to ESPN to the Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley flight.  Pacquiao won the fight in a lopsided decision and he knocked Bradley down twice.

Pat took a jacuzzi in the afternoon to help her sore back and she now has a sore big left toe.  She is falling apart.

We had dinner in The Grand Dining Room.  Pat had the Healthy Living Choice which for the appetizer is Crispy Mediterranean Tart with grilled Vegetables and Balsamic Onion Compote.  Salad is Shaved fennel and celery with endive, almonds, and Williams Pear in Grain Mustard.  For the main course Grilled  Miso Halibut in Banana Leaf with jasmine rice and vegetables. Jim had for his appetizer Pollenta Soufflé for his salad red apple salad with vegetables, feta cheese, oregano, and sherry vinegar dressing.  His main course was fontina stuffed Ravioloni with creamy black Truffle sauce.  We both enjoyed our dinner.

Good night on our way to Hiroshima.  We are rocking and rolling tonight on the ship!
