Joel was extremely excited about the Ping-Pong tournament they held on Tuesday morning. And, rightly so, because he beat every person who played him and won lots of dam dollars. Very exciting stuff.
Mom and I had done our second yoga class that morning, and then we all went to play our team trivia challenge. The questions were much harder that day, and we still lost--we always lost to a group that had 10 people. More brains to happen to know which European country produces the most cork. (It's Portugal, by the way, should you ever happen to need this knowledge.)
Then Joel and I took a walk around the Promenade Deck. To give you an idea of how big the ship is, three times around this deck equals a mile. We had to walk pretty far just to get to our room every day! While we were walking, we saw a boat with people on it come up next to the ship and then the people climbed on. Turns out they were the Glacier Bay Rangers, come to give us information about Glacier Bay, where we would be that afternoon.
Joel and I attended a lecture given by Ranger Emily about the area, which was very interesting and informative. Not to mention she was an outstanding photographer and had gorgeous pictures to share. That's always my favorite part.
After the lecture, we ate lunch, and here are some pictures to prove it. My Dad was really there, but for some reason I didn't photograph him. Maybe when I had the camera out he was up getting more food. Quite likely, actually.
(That's probably the best picture you'll get of my haircut. I don't have many pictures of me on this cruise on my camera. Might have to have my parents send me some off of theirs.)
After lunch, we were officially in Glacier Bay and stayed there most of the afternoon. Look for pictures of that tomorrow!
