12 down, 2 to go
MB and her funny money:
Lu and baby sis and their many escorts:
Lu went a little crazy:
I don't know:
It’s day twelve. Only two more full days left in this cruise. Today’s plans had us off the boat at ten. We didn’t sign up for any excursions, so we were on our own. After getting off the boat, we were greeted by a group of red coats. We felt very fortunate that they time traveled to greet us. We then bought some stamps and mailed our postcards from the past few days. After exiting the port area, we were greeted by cabbies offering tours of Gibraltar. We decided to go on one. After waiting for ten minutes to get in the taxi, supposedly waiting on another trio to join us, we realized the cabbie had no intention of taking us anywhere anytime soon. We took off towards the town.
Ten minutes later we reached the main touristy shopping area. We went in several stores. Molly bought a birthday outfit. Lu bought some earrings. MB bought some monkey coin purses for our Concierge comrades. Our stop in town included a stop at a little restaurant called Burger King. After two hours moseying around town, we decided to head back to the ship. On the journey back, we attempted to telephone Steve, but the phone was uncooperative.
Our afternoon onboard was surprisingly nap free for everyone. Molly ventured down to deck five to screen the Prestige, MB watched the Office in the room, and Lu had a date with Lucas for a deep tissue massage, which left her feeling like she has been beaten up.
Our afternoon snack, which included chocolate covered strawberries, were delivered and quickly devoured. We were then visited by Connie, Kumi, and Hilda. They presented us with a page of facts about the ship and Kumi showed us a picture with one of the moneys at the top of the rock. The visit ended in a group hug.
We ran off to dinner. The menu was Around the World. Everyone enjoyed their food. No one overate, for we’re saving room for the Palo brunch. We once again went our separate ways post dinner. MB went to see Invincible, Lu went to the Mickey Dreams show, and Molly went to read and make new friends on deck five.
The evening ended with a new friend, our next door neighbor Michelle (a fellow disser). There was dessert buffet that we did not attend, but we did devote a lot of thought to it. Tomorrow’s day is an all day blowout for Molly’s 21st.
