June 30 – Back to Seattle

By the time we awoke at around 5:45 this morning, the ship was already in the process of docking in Seattle.

As we'd packed most everything last night, we got dressed and headed to the Lido Deck fo breakfast … I'm afraid Debbie is planning to put me on something of a more restrictive diet than I've been able to enjoy this past week.  Oh, well …

Some statistics provided by the ship prior to our debarking.

 After some laundry, Debbie did some grocery shopping.
