This morning we got up at 5:30 and walked 3 miles. And since we refuse to use the elevators, we got in 28 flights of steps as we wandered around the ship. And THEN we had breakfast.
But it was SO neat walking around the top deck from 6 to 7 AM because it was dark with stars when we started, but every time we made another lap around to the East side, there was more light and color in the sky. And then the clouds began to take on a little color. The horizon started to rosy up. The clouds to the west began to lighten, then to glow pink. And finally, through a crevice in the clouds, the sun shot out happy and yellow and the water turned blueblueblue and I wanted to dance and sing with the warm breeze under my t-shirt and the light of my life by my side.
As we walked, we discussed those little dwarves that live inside us – the endwarfins (endorphins) that get all excited and make us feel so good when we walk. I think old, cupid has a little to do with it, too, because I have good walks with my girlfriends, but I never want to grab them and kiss them and hug them all over. I know, 62 should not get flirty and smoochy in public, but my heart is still about 18 when I’m around DH, and the heart does what the heart will.
This is a day at sea. We are planning on doing damn-all. There is an adults-only lounge area with hammocks and secluded basket chairs and comfy lounges. Or we might hang out on our balcony. The temp is about 78, with a light breeze and big fluffy white clouds. DH saw the first flying fish at 8:06 this morning. Oh my gosh, life is glorious!!
