August 19th, 2016 - Day 17 - Cruising The Sulu Sea

Today we woke up to the ocean and such a beautiful color blue and clear.  We are cruising about 15 knots and the temperature is 82 degrees.

We had breakfast in the Grand Dining Room.  Jim had oatmeal.  Pat tried something new -Eggs Benedict on chibata bread with Italian sausage and pesto hollandaise sauce.  It was good.

At 9:30 AM we went to the Enrichment Lecture with Harry Chittick:  "Message in a Bottle… Murder, Marconi and Saving Lives".  Harry Chittick mixes a murder in London, a crazy Italian and a new invention together to shed new light on the worst nautical disaster ever... The Titanic.  It was interesting.

We had lunch at the Waves Café.  Jim has been wanting a hamburger and french fries so we split it.  Jim had a chocolate milkshake with whipped cream on top.  He loved it.  We had mint chip ice cream for dessert.

We had a lazy afternoon reading.  Jim took a nap.

We had dinner in the Terrace Cafe.  Pat had chicken, pineapple and vegetables that they cooked in a wok.  Jim had beef goulash, mashed potatoes and cantaloupe wrapped in prosciutto.  We both had hummus and pita bread.

For dessert Jim had banana ice cream with no sugar and Pat had mint chip with not too many chips. We shared an apple strudel dessert that had too many raisins for Pat and a little sliver of New York cheesecake.

We came back to the room and read and Jim watched some TV news that was the morning news in America. 

Goodnight from the Sulu Sea!
