2nd VGS Genealogy Cruise

The second sea day felt a lot like the first day back to school in the fall, because the last four presentations would keep us occupied during the day. All of the lectures had been clearly and effectively presented. Even the advanced genealogists learned new things. This last day was no exception.

With the educational portion of the cruise at an end, the attendees returned to their cabins to pack their bags. The Norwegian Epic would be slipping into its berth at Port Canaveral around 6:00 am the next morning. Karen and I would be heading to the Orlando Airport for a flight to New York to celebrate the 1st birthday of our grandson, Gavin.
