Cruise day 3: At sea

 Up before 7 AM and feeling much better, although a little groggy.  The sea seemed calmer this morning there are blue skies and sunshine.  I sat out on the balcony for a little while and then we headed for breakfast.  The Horizon Court was empty at 7 AM, compared to what it was at 9 AM yesterday.  That was nice.  After breakfast we walked around the deck once to get some air.

We were lazy today.  I picked up David McCullough’s book, The Path Between the Seas, and read about 70 pages while sitting by the pool.  Despite that, I did manage to get to the gym and did 40 minutes of cardio.  We had lunch on the Horizon Court.
We had another excellent dinner tonight.  It was a "Carribean" dinner.  I had lamb, which tasted more like a pork roast to me, but which I still enjoyed.  We actually ate quickly tonight.  We didn’t linger.  After dinner, we headed to the Universe Lounge, where we got an excellent couch and sat down to watch a late showing of the movie "Swing Vote".
It was a quiet, relaxing day.
