What a perfect day! I got an amazing Christmas present, four very close friends surprised me by joining me for this voyage. It was the best kept secret ever...... Thanks the Brad & Leslie Elliott and Ann & Cathy Scott for such an amazing gift! I got off the ship early, went to Starbucks and got all my devices updated and then returned to the ship were I saw my friends Aart & Ellen, the day was improving greatly. It is so nice to see wonderful friends again. Then I decided to go out and walk about for a while and get some exercise and take some photos. Once back to the ship I ran into Brad and boy was I surprised... made my day! We went down to his suite and visited with Leslie until boat drill. Then, on the way to mu muster station I had the shock of a lifetime and ran into Ann & Cathy..... What a great surprise! Well the day was just perfect! Brad, Leslie, Ann, Cathy & I went to dinner at my regular table, 309 and had a wonderful evening... This is going to be a great cruise!
