August 28 - Sea Day

We continue in a south easterly direction headed towards the ABC islands. During the night the easterly winds have increased to 30 knots, and the seas have increased to "moderate" or 2 to 3 meters. The skies are mostly clear and there is a chance of some liquid sunshine today.

Speeding along at 20 knots and our stabilizers extended, the ship barely exhibits any motion. There is an occasional creak and moan, but very minimal.

The second test of WiFi trivia is held this morning. 60 players were successful.  As each question is completed the app indicates the correct answer and the number of guests that choose each of the multiple choice answers. When rolled out as a finished product the intention is that any guest can play from any  location at any time.  There has to be a new revenue stream here somewhere.

The guest vs. staff archery challenge wasn't even close.  One officer got 3 in a row, the best any passenger did was one. All arrows remained in the atrium, and no one was accidentally pierced.

The grass really greened up from the rains the other night.  Looks better than my grass at home, if fact the might even be more of it.  I have no clue as to what type it is, but is similar in texture to golf course greens.

Our magician was not as good as the one last week. I have yet to make any of the late entertainment. By 10 I'm ready to call it a day.

Seas calm a little as we get further south and east. Our expected arrival in Aruba is 8:00 AM.
