Day 7 At Sea





Last night was very rough…. Just like I like it! I sleep so well when the ship is rocking and rolling. A lot of people didn’t fair as well. Many people had a sleepless night. This was particularly true of those in the very front of the ship. When I woke early this morning we had 30 Kt winds and 20 ft seas but…… it was sunny! I went topside and was bronzing by 0715 this morning. The gaining and extra night every night is making it difficult to sleep in until at least 0700. I spent about 7 hours out in the sun today, going in for brief stints if some particularly egregious cloud would come by…. All in all it was a fabulous day. We keep lucking out, I hope (knock on wood) it continues. I do hope it warms up soon. Bronzing in these conditions is getting more and more difficult. As a professional tanologist I am obligated to continue on despite the conditions. Otherwise, I may as well move to Canada with my very, very pale friends…. I am now 14 hours ahead of the East coast. I think we gain at least one more hour before we get to Hakodate, Japan.

Is anyone else thinking that the Tan Man is the only passenger on the ship? He talks about other people but so far I've yet to see any signs that they exist. Maybe tundra tanning is making him see things..........

Is there water in the swimming pool? Doesn't look like (not that anyone was thinking about going swimming...)

They drained the pool because of the extremely rough seas. Im not the only one one the ship, just the only one outside.....
