Yep....we're still on vacation!!
|Suited up for rock climbing|
|There he goes!!|
|He made it to that bell at the top pretty fast|
Day 7 of our cruise was a day at sea so we didn't have to set an alarm at all. We got up, went to breakfast in the dining room and then had the day to ourselves. It was our first chance to just spend some time enjoying she ship. I suggested the rock climbing wall. I've never tried it before but Mj had once before. Mj went first and he shimmied up that wall pretty fast. He was like spider man. I couldn't believe how fast he was going up. It made me nervous that I wouldn't be able to do it at all.
|Uh...I don't know what to do|
|I made it!!!|
When I looked up at this giant wall it felt like it was going to be really hard and as I started up the wall it started to feel even harder. If Mj did it I wanted to do it too. I never looked down. Several times I froze not really knowing what rock to grab next. I'd reach for a rock then realize it wasn't big enough for me to grip onto or that it was too high for me to reach without falling. If I reached for a rock too directly in front of me I could feel that my arms would not hold me and that I would fall. I tried to use my legs more like the guy told me. I was sweating by the time I got to the top and when I rang that bell I was so excited. Coming down was the easy part.
|Hangin' out on deck|
After that we hung out on the deck near the pools and relaxed. This was the first night that I didn't need a nap but Mj did so he slept while I read my book and started packing up my stuff. Later that night there was a farewell variety show in the theater. I actually felt wide awake at the show for a change and not in a tired haze. I also got to wear sandals. After that we went to the dining room for our last dinner.
|Pretending I can sing|
I absolutely cannot sing but I have a thing for Karaoke. I convinced Mj to do it it with me one time years ago but he refused to ever do it again so I knew it would just be me. I'm pretty shy so it's not easy for me to get up there but I love it so much that I force myself. I did two songs and I promise, I was not the worst one there!
|Our last night on ship|
We went back to our room, Mj finished packing and then and we went to bed. The next day would be yet another new adventure.
