Last stop of the day was back at the beach to hopefully see some more whales up close and personal. As we drove in there were a lot of people waiting on the shore, the driver saw a whale pop up and we all hopped out for another photo opportunity of the mother and baby. We later heard that the crowds had been waiting there for as long as 2 and a half hours without seeing a whale that close so ...

We had ...
... makeup for me (as I asked) and I bought the stuff she used. Bob later took a picture of me - I think I looked somewhat better. It's pretty sad to look in the mirror nowadays any way :-)
Dinner tonight was at Jacques, French. Enjoyed it, especially the appetizer frog legs. On this cruise we always tried to have dinner early, at 6:30 if we could, so we would have time after dinner to walk the deck, ...
