So maybe I shouldn't have watched Lost

I don' mind flying, but .... now when we hit some bumpy air I can't help but picture the in flight precrash scene from Lost. I may be stuck with that for some time. The flight out of Seattle was way over booked with 25 people wait listed. The flight in Dallas Fort Worth had empty seats...go figure.
Flight one was with a chatty woman who had flown to Alaska for her brother's funeral, second flight was next to a guy perusing spread sheets on golf course, he never said boo.
The ride from the airport to the pier is short and in no time at all we were onboard the Equinox with glasses of Champagne. Plan of action is first breakfast/lunch and then explore. I suppose everyone else had the same idea. While getting food was no problem the seating area in and out was full, but we found a spot and never again on the cruise was it that busy.
Then what fun. They have double hammocks subtly hidden behind gauzy panels and double mattresses on the Solstice deck. A ten minute nap here, ten minutes in the sun there and on to more discoveries.
Yeh!! There was Rachel, the activity staff member from the Mercury. The definition of party girl. We finished up the day with our dinner in the dining room. A window seat in the far corner away from traffic with a couple from the states, Brian and Audrey from Niagara Falls, Canada, and oh... my brother Don and his wife Stacy from Tacoma Washington. Our waiter was Tony from India and Raynaldo from Honduras. Awesome food and the table mates? More in a bit.
I had a nap in the theatre as we waited for the show. The little taste of what was to come. Mario D'Andrea the guitarist was excellent, Jukebox is an acapella group, three swedes and an American. They are great. The choreography is a little loose, but turns out they only just started singing as a quartet. Jon learned his stuff from a CD.
More Dancing and finally bed......
