It's another do-nothing, full relaxation day. We did not get up until a quarter to 10, even though I woke up a few times before that. Funny thing – the more I slept, the more tired I seemed to be.

Did not do much in the morning. I went to listen in to some session about skin care, which turned out to be mainly advertisement for the skin care product line the "Canyon Ranch" spa carries here on the ship. All 6 of us met for lunch and then chatted about the itineraries for the next stop, Da Nang. Then Bob and Ira went to play the Blackjack tournament (this time he lost in the first round). I went to the talk by sports broadcaster Verne Lundquist, who told stories from his own career. It was very interesting. The events he covered included the figure skating Olympics when Tonya Harding hurt Nancy Kerrigan, the golf tournament when Jack Nicholas won, etc.  He was a good story teller and I really enjoyed it!

Later Bob and I looked through the photos and videos Ira and Fran took, and the photos I took. We relived our visit to the tiger temple, which is by far the highlight of this entire trip! It brought back precious memories and my desire to go back there again! I definitely will go back some day!! Hopefully when Caleb is old enough to go with us!!

Dinner was at the Compass Rose, the main dining room.  As usual, we met Ira and Fran in the Horizon lounge before dinner and had a cocktail. Dinner was good – I had my favorite sea bass (and Lucy taught me how I can make the same dish myself!). After dinner, Fran and I watched the show by the dancing team. Tonight’s show had an African theme and was quite impressive and very enjoyable.

Tomorrow we will be in Da Nang. The excursion we signed up for is to Hue and the Perfume river. Lucy negotiated with the destination service people and arranged for us to join the day excursion with the evening excursion, so we gain about 4 hours on our own to shop the market place! It’ll be a long day starting at 8am. I’m looking forward to it!
