Had a lovely evening with our hosts Dick and Cass last night, Dick as usual had cooked a superb dinner and Trish food friendly. Of course we enjoyed a couple of glasses of good wine with them. They showed us some lovely photos of some places in the USA we should go. Cass is a great photographer.
We managed to catch up with some of the familyon Skype and video,mind you it was 1.30am before we said good bye to them all. Steven then spent another hour or so talking with friends on Skype.so we are quite tired today, but our own faults yet was great to be able to catch up using video.

The trip to Tampa airport to return the car was uneventful. No shuttles here however the taxis have a fixed fare from the airport to the cruise ship terminal of $25.00 (Tip -you have to know about the fixed fare and tell the driver when you get in)
Boarding the Holland America Ryndam only took a few minutes no queues or delays. Soon we were sailing Into Tampa Bay and out to the Gulf of Mexico.We took advantage of being able to stand at the bowof the ship to watch the dolphins and sunset before dinner.
