We hooked back up in the cabin around 12:15, dressed for lunch (I'm treating us 4 to the Pinnacle Grill for lunch) and we headed down to the cruise consultant to talk about our next vacation
Lunch was lovely! I love the Pinnacle Grill's food, ambiance and service. It is worth the small fee (10$ per person for lunch) to treat our selves. I had a Paté appetizer, , and a filet with a blue cheese crust for lunch, followed by a chocolate bread pudding that was awesome. Lunch ended, then it was off to trivia again. Again, we came in second, and we have some smart people. Carol was a teacher, Bob is a history buff, you all know Michael is smart, Wanda and Ken are/were biologists or chemists, and me, well, I know movies and such. But we think some of these others groups are googling the answers or something. They can't be that smart! They gat 13, 14 or 15 right everyday! And the questions are so diverse!
After another loss, I headed to the deck and the hot tub by the sea view pool on the aft lido deck, where I ran into the woman from Ohio, and her friend who is from Boardman (she is from near there). We sat in the swirling warm waters for a half hour or more talking and laughing, before I headed back to the cabin to shower and dress for dinner. It was to be the last formal night, the "farewell" dinner, and our last opportunities for portraits.
Have I mentioned how much I enjoy dressing up in a tux, and I don't look half bad either. And Michael is darn right handsome in black tie. We had several photo's done, some of me by myself, some of the two of us, a couple of the four of us. Then off to dinner. The menu was so lovely this evening, and we had missed this menu because we had gone to the Tammarind restaurant last cruise.
A lovely appetizer of pate n croute, followed by a lovely wild rice soup, well, on second thought, not so lovely. I didn't care for it actually. The entrée I had was Lobster (two tails) and then I ordered a Chicken scallopini as well (Carol laughed that she had never seen me eat so much! Ok ok, I've put on a few pounds I am sure!) and desert was the traditional baked Alaska
We have been playing a new game. A version of Canasta called "Hand and Foot" that you play with 5 decks of cards. It is my new favorite game, and Bob and I have been wiping the decks with Michael and Carol! So much so they have become obsessed with beating us! After cards, Michael and I game a bit, then It is off to bed. Not a bad life, eh?
