No plans today - just going to wander.
Steep steps to disembark though. This happened at several of our ports. I wonder if this is just and "Eclipse thing" looking at the other ship in the background, their doors seems to be lower the ship making it easier to get on and off.
I hadn't done my research and needed more Euros for the HoHo bus. We quickly found an AMT, got more euros and bought our tickets. We hadn't planned on the bus, it was a spur of the moment thing. Pictures from the bus tour.
Pictures from a moving bus aren't easy!
We did almost the entire circle on the red line, but got off to walk around and find some lunch.
I know, we are in Lisbon but craving Pizza so we have pizza. They had free wifi and we needed a quick connection with home.
Touristy but the pizza was really good!
Wifi was very slow but if you stand in this spot - it works the best. This is where Terry was standing with wifi to find out who the Arizona Cardinals picked in the NFL draft.
Oh - the HoHo bus was 19 Euros per person but their disposable headphones didn't work most of the time. Thankfully I had a good pair with me and we shared.
Pictures looking down the columns as we used the wifi.
And then we walked...... through some craft stalls and up an down many side streets.
The sidewalks were very interesting.
We did get some gelato and I took this photo for reference so we knew how to order the flavor we wanted!
And we tried some small pastries. I have no idea what I ate but it was good!
I thought this was funny
We were looking for a local artist who made something we could use as a Christmas ornament, but I loved the tiles everywhere and kept getting sidetracked taking pictures.
We did find a nice little shop that wasn't touristy and i found my Christmas ornament. It's actually a bell but I like it.
A bit worn out, we actually walked the rest of the way back to the boat for a drink and to put up our feet. We managed to score "the seats" but I didn't get a picture of them - at the back of the ship on the landing of the stairs between the 2 bars. I love these chairs!
We ran into some friends we had met, brought down 2 more chairs and we cuddled under blankets, sipping our drinks as we watched sail a away.

Taking photos of sail-away at the back of the ship while drinking..... takes coordination.
And again with less clouds
The statue looked nice and was a great photo
but I liked it better with both in one photo, the statue and the moon.
