    Our last day on the ship was spent at sea. So we spent our time exploring the ship.

    They had a wave pool on board.
    I wanted to try it but the line was too long

    We did some mini golf instead.
    I think Kathe is the worst golfer I have ever seen!!!
    But she looked good in her mini skirt and she got better at the end

    You know how everyone has a gold or platium card these days???
    Well, I am a diamond club member with RC cruise lines.
    I didn't think it meant anything until we discovered the Diamond Club on deck 14. It was a private room for only Diamond Club members.
    The room was nice
    The food was ok
    But the big thing was........FREE DRINKS!!!
    And we discovered this on the last day!!!!
    Well, not all was lost, the wine they served there was not up to my snobby standards.
    Hey, what's higher than diamand??
    I want the Chateau Lafite club
    :freaky

    As Kathe got ready for dinner, I got in a few laps on the ice skating rink aboard the ship

    On our last night, we went to a special restaurant aboard the ship.
    It was special because the food was better but you had to pay to eat there. We went all out and had filet mignon, jumbo shrimp and halibut.
    And a special bottle of wine.......Sena

    Yum....Sena
    And I think it was mis-marked on the menu.
    It was less than half the price it should have been

    Off the boat, we loaded the moto up with wine, bikinis and camping gear to find a place on the beach south of Barcelona. Kathe had 3 more days before she needed to head back to Lima

    We head down to Tarragonga.

    I will post more pictures later. It is getting dark and I need to find a place to camp. After the cruise, I think I am going to be doing a lot of free camping........I am way over budget now

    Ha ha I know right!? Just got back reading Ride Reports on ADVrider (I must admit I had withdrawals for a while). But I´m back for more. Feel free to PM me if you need anything in BCN. Next week I´ll be in Bardonecchia area for a weekend (Stella Alpina gathering).

    Ride safe!

    Loving it Lalo :clap
    If you want sand you need to head south.
    South of Barcelona you'll start to find sand.
    South of Valencia you'll find sand and much warmer water.
    Have fun!!! :1drink
