A Zig… A Zag…

After leaving LA we were headed southwest, but overnight into the early morning hours we came about hard to port, a slight change of plans, back to Cabo San Lucas, Mex. due to a medical emergency onboard. We remained on ship time because of the confusion it would have caused everyone onboard, crossing back and forth through a time zone, then back through it to Cabo and then back once we continued our original course into the South Pacific. This turnabout does mean missing a scheduled port (Rangiroa) to make up for the extra day, which is too bad for we had a snorkeling excursion planned, but all of us onboard feel the same and hope the passenger will be fine, because for us traveling, one day is as beautiful as another with no time or destination in mind. We expect to arrive in Cabo around 4 this morning. They will anchor and launch a tender and the passenger will be transported to shore and after the transfer is completed we will be on our way.

We have had a series of great lectures yesterday and today: Jennifer Chandler- Olympic Gold Medalist in diving (1976); Professor Adrian Vickers – The Marquesas Islands , Herman Melville and the outliers of Polynesia (many islands); Captain John Creighton – Navy Pilot, Space Shuttle Commander; Neil Leifer – Sports most decorated photographer. You see them at lunch or dinner, at shows or just chilling out somewhere on deck and happy to talk to you.

Today is the opening ceremony of the Crystal Olympics, being that Japan is hosting this year’s summer games. The events were kicked off by Jennifer Chandler, 1976 Gold Medalist. Here are our participating entries: Darts (David); Golf Putting (Meredith, David); Table Tennis (David); Tricia (David, Meredith and our noon team of the Fab-8)

  2. The guy next to Jennifer Chandler looks like Ben Mankewitz from Turner Classic Movies…
    I love all the lectures….next stop, the South Pacific. I’m guessing they will be a ceremony sometime when you pass the equator.
