We had another day at sea after leaving Victoria, and my group spent it rehearsing, as we did a brief performance that night in one of the many ship’s lounges. As I mentioned in my post on the Ketchikan stop, we didn’t get much support for our performance, so the audience was not very large, but they were very appreciative. Fortunately the concert didn’t last very long; I was concerned about how I was going to pack. Ship’s rules said that any luggage you wanted the crew to take off the boat, had to be out in the hall before dinner. This meant I had to wear the same clothes to dinner that night, and to disembark the next morning; and underwear and some other items had to move into my rolling carry-on, already pretty full. As usual, I worried about this more than was warranted, and the whole thing went quite smoothly. I was expecting my husband to come pick me up, but he had had trouble with his car on his hiking trip (don’t ask), and didn’t want to risk it. I took a taxi home, which worked just fine. Here endeth the Wade in the Water cruise.
