Sea Princess Sea Day - 06/22/19

22 June 2019 | Atlantic Ocean
Slept in today. I checked out the internet while Mark caught a few more zz's. Got dressed and headed up to Deck 14, Lido for breakfast. Then got some exercise walking on Deck 7. I worked on a puzzle for a while. Met up with Mark back in the cabin. Watched some tv. Then headed back to Deck 14, Lido, for a light lunch. Talked to Captain Tony just outside the Horizon Court. We skipped brunch in the dining room since we didn't want to eat too much. We walked some more. It was colder today. So, there was no sweating for us. Once we finished our rounds, we headed to the gym to work out on their machines. Then headed back to our cabin for a rest before attending the Ryder Cup challenge. I ended up beating Mark by one stroke and matching the low score for today. What fun! We showered and got dressed up for tonight's dinner. Watched some of the movie, The Space Between Us. Then headed to dinner on Deck 5. Ian, Beverly and Greg and Maxine were already seated by the time we got there. Enjoyed our time together. Decided to check out a Fact or Fiction Trivia gathering in the Vista Lounge which was entertaining. Then we stayed to watch a second show with Simon Cotter, the Canadian comedian. Mark agreed that it was a better show this time. I spoke to Simon at the end of the show and he said he was from Toronto. Then we decided to check out the evening entertainment with Sarah Carter. She played a violin and mostly played some Irish songs, ending up playing The Devil Went Down to Georgia. The weather has changed. The seas are over 8 foot in height and the boat is really rocking back and forth. Plus, it's raining out. We have not seen any rain in a very long time. Mark checked out the results of today's French F1 qualifying and Hamilton has the pole for tomorrow's race. Not sure we will get to see the race on our tv. We are currently off La Coruna, Spain, but far enough offshore, that we cannot see land. We saw several freighters on the Atlantic today. It was very overcast with just a hint of blue in the sky. The sun finally set after 10 pm. It was very misty with the rain, so no sunset visible.

Vessel Name: Charabia
Vessel Make/Model: Fountaine Pajot / Athena
Hailing Port: Jacksonville, FL
Crew: Mark &Helen
We are both computer folks that were live aboard cruisers back in the 90s. We settled in Jacksonville Florida after escaping the great white north and cruising the Bahamas, T&C, DR and points south down to Trinidad. [...]
Extra: Charabia is a French slang word for nonsense or gibberish. It derives from Arabic "sharab" which means alcohol.When you drink (too much) alcohol, you start talking Charabia. The original owners named her and Mark liked the name so it stuck.
