First a shout out to my brother- and sister-in-law for a successful 45 years of marriage. Kip is Kim’s little brother. I have been told there is a special place in Heaven for women that put up with guys like Kip, hang in there, Colleen (and I guess Kim also).
Today I played harbor master and got the freight ships in and out safely and kept the small sailboats out of harms way. I’m not off work yet as it’s 5 o’clock and we don’t leave until 11 tonight. But, it’s 5 o’clock here and I’m taking a beverage break.
Kim headed off early to go to a beach we found 5 years ago here in Tauranga. The beach was full of perfect shells then. Now it’s just a bunch of shell pieces. She explored around the island and along the way she found this beautiful place, today’s picture.
Tomorrow is a sea day and Super Bowl Monday. The game starts at 12:30 on Monday afternoon and they will play it in the Grand Salon. It has 3 big screen TV’s. Our ship was provisioned today and I was assured we now have plenty of Lagunitas IPA. Enjoy the game, GO HAWKS!
Okay, my beverage break is over, and a Viking Cruise Ship is leaving now. More after the big game.
