The next day we went on an amazing tour in a small boat with a few others from CC.  We went under that bridge Roy mentioned across the Rio Negro, then went up that river in search of pink dolphins, they were supposed to be on their "day off", but further up the river our guide found a spot where we could swim with them.  I stayed on dry land, but Pat dared all!  Then we went to a village where we watched  some  Amazonian natives play music on strange instruments and dance, then to a place where the group was allowed to fish (more like "tease") the huge fish that are in the river.  Then to a huge fish lunch buffet in a floating restaurant and to a floating village before heading back to Manaus.

That sounds like the exact excursion we went on in 2018 with others from CC. Yes, we went under the bridge and up the Rio Negro, to the pink dolphins and then on to the performance at the native village. It was a terrific day!

@kazuThank you for sharing the information about KK and about Joe.  KK will be missed so much.  It always amazed me how she had all those menus for the specialty restaurants and dining room breakfasts ready to post.  I hope Joe does have the in home help he needs.  

 

Swimming with the pink dolphins looks like fun, but I'll pass on holding the tarantula.

Good morning

 

It is with a heavy heart that I must be the bearer of very sad news.  Yonnie (Krazy Kruisers) apparently passed away on March 16 according to bellebaby in the solo thread. 😢 

 

I have asked her to email me.  My last email to Yonnie had not been answered longer than normal but I knew she wasn’t well.

 

Her husband Joe does not use the computer so I understand why I did not hear.

 

I am very 😢 and will be back later when I can be more cheerful.

 

RIP Yonnie ♥️ 🙏🏻 

 

Edited to say, I have now found her obituary, sadly.

 

Appreciate you letting us know this sad news, Yonnie was always so helpful with cruising information.

Wish we had been able to meet them on a cruise.

Hope Joe will get the support that he needs.

RIP Yonnie.

Very late to play!  So sorry to hear about KK,  did appreciate her posts!  
I lost my brother years ago but will always miss him!  
 

The wine and dinner sound great but we had takeout enchiladas.  
 

Our last play was Come from away in London,  and it was amazing!

Good evening.  I’m very late today.  We made it home about 1:30 this afternoon.  It took several hours to get house opened up and get what we needed today off the motorhome. We’ll get the rest unloaded over the next few days.

 

We were in Manaus in 2006 on the old Regal Princess doing b2bs making it a round trip from FLL.  Since Manaus was a turn around port for those doing only 14 days, we were there 2 1/2 days.  The afternoon we arrived, we took a riverboat tour that also included a small boat through the jungle. We saw the pink dolphins then.

 

The next day we did a city tour that included the opera house and the zoo.  in the afternoon we took a shuttle out to a resort.

 

We were lucky to be there when it was safe to go out on your own.  The last day, we wandered down to the market.  Four of us took one of the small boats out to the back waters.  They stopped the boat at a relative’s house.  He and his kids came out with a anaconda, a three toed sloth and a green parrot.  I was surprised at how soft the sloth’s fur was.

I’m fine holding a tarantula, as long as nobody scares it. They’re actually soft and furry. An anaconda would terrify me!

Hi Jacqui! 
Nothing makes it float! We have a flower shop down the street and because a lot of surfers will have wreaths done up for celebrations or as when our dear friend passed away she always has them made up! She weaves branches with the flowers so it is biodegradable and no plastic! We were hoping for a beautiful sunset but we had cloud cover. Jacqui thank you! You are always here for all. 
KK met  so much to me. I am so happy when I asked where has KK been? If you didn’t follow through in finding out it would of been sad to find out through the grapevine!

Appreciate you! Sorry, I am a talker😊

Thank you, Denise, for doing this and for posting it.

 

I never had the honor of meeting KrazyKruiser, but would always read her posts.  She was so very generous with her time and knowledge.  She will be missed by all.
