En Route To Tenerife, Canary Islands

If we stay on schedule, we'll dock tomorrow at the Port of Santa Cruz Cruise Pier, Tenerife, Canary Islands.

The Canary Islands aren't named after the little birds, but after the now-extinct dogs (Latin canem) that used to live there.

The ride has been a little bumpy over the past couple of days, with strong headwinds, but still quite tolerable. Earlier this afternoon on deck it was cool enough that some people were wearing sweaters. We involve ourselves in the daily games, which can include shuffleboard, table tennis, golf putting, and similar events. Although we'll earn enough "Big O" points to get ourselves a couple more hats, the main object is to have fun and meet nice people.

It continues to be a glorious cruise and we're really enjoying ourselves.
