We Go to Sea

This ship was meant to go to Hawaii. Everywhere you look there are hibiscus dripping from the ceiling and King Ahmahi presides over our dinner restaurant. The cafe that I'm writing this in has surf boards next to beaches.

Last night Eden fell asleep at dinner. Not just nodding off...but sleeping. We tried to wake her up when her pie came but she just gave us a scowl and flopped back down on the pile of napkins the waiter had brought for a pillow. Sam was appalled that we ate her pie "order her another one!" He was almost in tears at our injustice. So we did. And Eden scowled and we ate the second pie.

I slept 15 hours last night. You really can't do this unless you are sick. Or you have an amazing little sister who is willing to wakeup with your jet lagged up kiddos. I'll just let you guess which was the case. But *spoiler* Mary had an orange party while I slept. I'm still not exactly sure what an orange party is. I suspect it involved oranges. But I am supremely grateful for it.

Finding People You Love in Places Strange and Far

we met David and Margaret at the airport. After an hour and three cups of melted chocolate we saw them come through the door. And then we started looking for Mary. We didn't expect to see her for a while but at each step we were wondering where she was. We worried about he catching busses and making the right connections. And then she wasn't at the ship. She made it here just fine but we realized how dependent we are on cell phones. We used to go hours without knowing were someone was.

Im waiting for tonights show of accrobats. See the awesome picture attached. One more day until Turkey.
