Some kind of incident...

WTF happened?

This morning I took a walk out on the balcony & I felt like I was in a Christmas village. This town was all lit up at dusk nestled at the foot of snow capped mountains with it's reflection in the water. I yelled at Bernie, "You have to see this!" She did & it was still light out at midnight. Not much sleep tonight, I could tell. WEnt back to bed but I was really excited about the land portion. In the morning, we took our last walk on the balcony & then took our bags with us to breakfast. Arriving at the dining room, there were 2 towels placed on the right side door entrance. Obviously, some type of accident happened, we figured someone must had yacked, or so we thought. We were seated to the left, & after ordering, we then saw one worker with a mask on & then another with a jumpsuit on covering his entire body! Then yellow tape was being carried (WTF) & then a huge carpet cleaner/sweeper was carried by the jumpsuit man a few minutes later.

The waiters kept asking us if we wanted toast & acted like nothing was going on. Upon leaving 45 minutes later, there was yellow tape blocking one 10 seater dining room table in the middle. Yellow tape was also blocking the right entrance (that had the towels) & the tape was even blocking one elevator! Hopefully it was just a sea-sickness & not a virus!

To the Explorer's Lounge at 8:45 to sit & wait to disembark. We chatted about football with a man from South California who was a Charger's fan. He teased me because I don't like football but like hockey. He was pretty funny though. We disembarked around 9:30 & it was a long trek to the bus in Whittier. On the bus, we had to wait until 10am for the Whittier tunnel to open. This tunnel is 2.5 miles long & is the longest tunnel in the US. There was a line-up for it, since only one way traffic goes through it at one time. We waited about 5 minutes before our turn. It was pretty dark going through but rather interesting. :)
