A long cruise - we're on our way, part 2
First full day at sea means getting into the pattern of doing what comes naturally on a ship - not much (unless you want to).
Holland America listed in the Daily Explorer that "knitters and knatters" would have an un-hosted gathering most mornings at 10:00. The woman who lives with me (my loving and adored wife, Karen) is a knitter. This was perfect for her to spend a couple of hours doing what she likes to do. Sit and knit and talk! She enjoyed the time being with others and made many new friends, folks she would see for the rest of this long cruise.
