... relaxing day...dinner tonight was at the Polo Grill ( steakhouse) Excellent, again!!
We are headed toward Cape Verde. This is an archipelago in the Atlantic about 500 Kms west of Senegal, Africa. It became part of the Portuguese empire in the late 1400's. The islands are mostly mountainous with the land deeply scarred by erosion. Positioned on the great trade routes between Africa, Europe and the New World the islands became a ...
... because there really wasn't much to see and this was a common complaint by many passengers who bought the shore excursion. Saturday in town was a busy shopping day for the locals and we walked through their fresh produce and fish market. Mindelo looks like it's trying to entice tourism, but it still has a ways to go. It was fun to poke around, but for the most part, ...

Now how comes they show up today, we have had 6 sea days with fairly calm days ...
I thought I had the day mapped out, shuffle, camera club, round the world lunch, afternoon charity sale, etc. but I got the timings all wrong. I thought the lunch was at 1pm but no 12 noon. This changed everything. To begin with camera club is noon, shuffle starts at 10.15 but if (I know it's a big if) you get through to the finals it often doesn't finish until after 11.30. Now as it's the Captains Lunch you can't turn up dressed any old how, and certainly not straight from ...
