What a wonderful surprise

Today was an amazing day. It started off with a very long disembark that I could write a book about, but I will leave that for another day. After saying goodbye to our good friend Barbara (she was with us for the Panama Canal). We visited our friend from the 2010 World Cruise Dyann Riley. She lives just six short blocks from the ship terminal, in downtown San Diego.

When we arrived at dinner and our good friend Susan Hasson had booked this second part of this cruise to surprise us. Of course Tom the Dinning Room Manager had arrange for us to sit together. It was a wonderful surprise.

After the late show we returned to the room to find Spa Appointments for tomorrow that our friend Barbara had left for us as a thank you for us taking her on the cruise. So all in all it was a day filled with wonderful surprises.
