Cruise Vacation - Day 10 (Saturday, 19 May 2012)

The ship arrived in Edinburgh this morning, but not near the city.  The ship lifeboats and local boats provided ferry service from the ship to shore.

We did not book a tour for this day because I was concerned about the Tender experience and Linda’s balance (we have to take a small boat between the cruise ship and the pier). Plus, the tours offered involved quite a bit of walking and climbing stairs. Linda suggested that we take a taxi into Edinburgh, but the city is 45 minutes away – it would be very expensive. Hence, we stayed aboard the ship.

After breakfast at 7:30 a.m., Linda went to swim at the Solarium and I watched the Tendering for awhile, then read my book. At 10:30 a.m., I went to the cabin to update this journal, review the class syllabus some more, and work on my presentations.

We went to lunch, and then I came back to the cabin and worked some more on the presentations. I took a nap, and then finished my book and took it back to the library and got another one.

The ship departed from Edinburgh at 6 p.m. We went to dinner, then did some shopping on board. This was a quiet day of rest, which I needed.
