Fabulous Melbourne Florida.....








I had a spectacular day today in Melbourne Florida. I went to the beach to see a friend from the Grand Asia voyage who lives here. I met up with Barbara and her friend of 40 years, Star from Wisconsin this morning at Barbara's condo. They were already poolside when I arrived this morning. It was a fabulous day.... great company, great temps and lots of sun!!!!! The beach was really nice as well. Barbara's condo is on the ninth floor and what a view...... I hope my remaining days in Florida before we sail are half as nice as today. Tomorrow morning I'm off again making the final run into Ft. Lauderdale. I plan an early morning departure so I can get to the hotel early, turn in the rental car and relax poolside.... what a plan. I would have enjoyed another few days here but..... I must move on. Thanks to Barbara and Star for a wonderful day. P.S. Ian, it was a lot warmer here than in Canada.... we missed you. Barbara says hi to you and Carole.

Hi Jeff,
I have just tuned into this Blog. I followed you last year on your long journey but didn't realize that you were off again.

You must have been on the same cruise as our friends from Atlanta - Lois and Ken Scwartz - were on. The 65 day cruise on the Amsterdam, which came to visit our Melbourne in November.

We took them out for the day to show them some of the sights and what a beautiful sunny day we turned on for the ship.

I am looking forward to going back and reading your blog of that journey and of course keeping up with the new journey on the Rotterdam.
