First up was another attempt by the girls on the rock wall. I think Nya made it to the top this time, but Meg didn't. She got confused at one spot and just came down.
This is Lucy, above. She did a great job! I don't have a picture of Nya.
Megan tried a different route, but it was hard!
Royal Caribbean prides itself on its art collections on the ships. Just walking down the cabin corridors, you'll find interesting art, with information plates. In the elevator area, there is larger scale art, like this:
I tried to take the picture at the scale that you see it at while on the elevator. A typical sort of still life, but what is the medium?
Mmmm....seems kind of stripey.
Super zoom to the rescue:
It's a mosaic made from spools of sewing thread!!! How creative!! There's a well known "knitting picture" that it reminds me of, Debbie New's "Granny Squares" afghan. Mmmm. Can't find a good picture on Google :(
Meg and I went for another skate at some point. We kind of lost track of what everyone was doing, where they were, for most of the day. LOL. We had walkie talkies, but either people didn't take them, couldn't hear them, the batteries were dead, or someone else was on the channel.
We did miss the fruit and vegetable carving and the towel folding, and the Hip Hop dance class, LOL.
I like this picture of Lucy underwater. I'm glad all my kids like being in the pool. They don't like swimming lessons anymore, but they're quite fine in the ocean or pool.
There was a Farewell show at 9:00....don't ask me anything about it :)
Hugh and Lucy were going to go to the Teen Room for the evening activities, with the Ohio girls, but Hugh wasn't feeling well, so they didn't. That was fine, since we had to pack and get our suitcases out in the hall by 11pm, I think. Earlier in the week, Guest Services told us that Megan's suitcase couldnt' be fixed, but they had a new one for us. It was much larger, and seemed better at first (four wheels!), but then we found the inner pocket on the lid was torn. And it had a terrible plastic smell! Like my pink suitcase, it was hard to balance, and kept tipping over.
Someone suggested getting a picture of the suitcases in the hall, just in case something happened to them overnight. Good idea! People seem pretty honest though. Actually, this isn't all the suitcases--Meg's isn't here. And there might have been another carry on size suitcase.
Despite needing to get to bed early, we didn't. We had to say good bye to Lou and Nya! As usual, the week (we even had an extra day!) went too fast.
