Our final stop was in Victoria, Canada. We were all looking forward to getting our passports stamped (yes, we're nerds like that) and they didn't even glance at them! All they cared about was our silly ship keycards. Dang it!!
Victoria is a nice touristy town, but, dinner was quite expensive. Be sure to bring the cash!
Speaking of cash - Tom and I visited the casino onboard many times during our trip. The last night we went, I decided to play the 25 cent slot machine while Tom played poker. After about 30 minutes of playing, I freaking won a $937 jackpot!!! I was freaked and excited at the same time!! Woo HOO!
Then, we got our bill the next morning and I had to give all my winnings away. Sad.
The marina and a fancy government building (not even a capital).
One final story to show my ding dong blonde self: Kris, Dwane, Tom, and I are sitting on the boat sipping tasty beverages right after we set sail. The Captain comes on to tell us how far we're going, how many knots we're going, etc. Kris asks, "What's a knot?" and it's kind of windy so I lean over and repeat her question to Tom. He answers, "It's 1.15 miles. Not a cool mile." I repeat that to Kris. She looks at me weirdly and says "Not a cool mile?" So, I lean back over to Tom and repeat "It's not a cool mile?" I'm thinking to myself, that's weird that he said it that way. He starts laughing at me and says "Nautical mile, Jennifer". Yes, I am a moron.
Happy Birthday, Old Man!!
