Describe your perfect vacation day!
What would be your absolute perfect vacation day?
Me? Cappucino and a chocolate croissant for breakfast, head out and do a little sightseeing...head to a French/Italian village market for the freshest ingredients available. Long leisurely lunch with wine in same French/Italian Village. Head back to wherever we're staying and enjoy a little downtime by the pool with beverage(s) of choice. Enjoy a dinner of market ingredients over more beverage(s) of choice, listen to the crickets and watch the sunset.
Getting up at 8AM ,going out on the verandah ,gazing at the sea . Reading a book by my favorite author ,listening to my favorite radio station ,watching people walk by ,wondering what they are thinking .
On a cruise ship, of course. Smoked salmon, cream cheese and coffee for breakfast.
A good, long swim in the pool, usually all alone early in the day.
Get off the ship, wander the town or take a tour of the city if I've not been there before, then find the best beach and snorkle and swim.
Return to ship, shower, dry hair on the balcony in the breeze, dress for formal night.
Look smashing! Join interesting and funny tablemates for a great dinner and conversation.
Listen to a great jazz trio, have a nightcap, walk the Promenade and be thankful for all I have and all I can do.
on the Carnival Liberty last year in October on the full charter jazz SuperCruise
up early am on a full day at sea, to do my daily walk when the ship is quiet and the sun is rising..breakfast on the lido deck watching the news on the huge tv screen...full body massage at the spa..late morning artist Q&A session in the atrium (that day it was jazz/funk legion George Duke)...lunch of fish/chips on the lido deck at the football tailgate party with 70's soul singing legend Jeffrey Osborne (of LTD fame) with 3000+ cruisers in their hometown NFL jerseys...late afternoon Gospel According To Jazz part 3 performance featuring Grammy Award winner Kirk Whalum...70's theme dress up night for dinner...performance under the stars on the lido deck with the late great singer Teena Marie (her last live performance prior to her untimely death) ...late night allstar jam session featuring a Soul Train dance line...0100 am pizza on the lido deck watching the 70's movie Shaft under the stars
my perfect vacation day would start out with breakfast on our balcony, then our private tour guide would meet us as we disembark he/she would drive us to our chartered sailboat where we would sail away to a private island to lounge on the silky sand, swim or snorkel, there would be a gentle breeze, palm trees a cabana with facilities, an attendant to see to our wants, drinks and a gourmet luncheon, we would sail back and experience a breath taking sunset and a champagne toast to a perfect day.

In July we will spend a couple of days in San Diego. We booked into a hotel that sits across the street from the bay. We'll have a bay facing room and watch the regatta each day. We will tour the Aircraft Carrier Midway and have a wonderful diiner at the Fish Market next door to the Midway.
