And so a touch of rain
A touch of rain might be a good thing, but for a whole week? However, there is a of bit Sun in the Horizon!!imageYes to all your inquires- it’s raining again!! Today our wonderful home away from home, Holland American Lines, MS Veendam has docked in the beautiful port of Quebec, Canada. Wondrous vistas surround. It is a beautiful city and as par for the course it is raining!!! Arg!!! As I have reported since day one, clouds, ultra imagethick fog, and our shipmate the rain has determinately followed us here since Bar Harbor, Maine. However, I thank the crew of the MS Veendam for providing me and our entire fellow passengers much needed sunshine.
Bon Jour, good morning, hello, Gutten Morgen- the ever cheerful staff and crew are “one of a kind” in making a humdrum day a sunshine filled Day!! For the next few days and evenings – my calendar is heavily scheduled. Besides all the exciting shipboard events and entertainment, a few “extras” are being prepared for our viewing audience at home. Executive Chef Allen will be preparing a wondrous Great Chefs, “Cuisine at Sea” television special on board the MS Veendam as he serves up a decadent breakfast . Chef Allen will serve up a seafood omelet, poached eggs and a delicious flan. This very afternoon we will be joining the Master of the Ship, Christopher J. Norman,
