4/29/19 – Monday
After our exercises and breakfast we could actually walk off the ship at this dock. Boy, was it hot and steamy, that’s why my first photo was like this:
We continued on for about a couple miles to the American Samoa National Park Visitor’s Center. The actual park was a cab distance away and mostly hiking in dense forest, so we figured we were okay just getting information and my Passport stamp here. Once we arrived we were most impressed with the Air Conditioning!!! Ah, sooo refreshing..
Back at the ship I took these shots of the park:
For the afternoon we played cards (“13”) with Jamie and Beth, watched a movie “Marwen”, and enjoyed Dinner. I ate the Feijoa (fruit) that I’d seen at the public market in Wellington, NZ and Trina bought for me in Napier, NZ. She said almost everyone has this tree in their back yard. I’d even seen one with fruit at Hobbiton. Well, I was not so thrilled with that fruit. So there’s my word on it.
We went up on the top deck of our ship to check out the stars when it was dark. There was still a lot of ambient light on the ship so we just didn’t get the beautiful sky view that you would in the desert. Darn.
