Today Doc and I booked a shore excursion to the B Reactor which produced plutonium during WWII. That tour would return us to the ship just in time to set sail at 5 p.m.
We realized there would be no time in the morning to go Penny Finding. We wanted to have breakfast, hear the Riverlorian talk at 8 a.m., then take the first Hop on-Hop off bus at 9 a.m. around the loop. Plus, one never knows how long it will take to find the daily coin. It could take minutes or hours. It was too risky to wait until the morning to try and find a coin.
Thus, Doc and I headed out around 11:15 p.m. last night. We walked down the gangplank feeling like some of the young crew members who were heading out for a late Friday night on the town. We walked and walked and walked. It was dark and we traveled along a very busy highway, past closed businesses, a golf course, construction, etc. Finally arrived at a 24 hr Winco Grocery Store. The place was HUGE!!!! And there was a penny as soon as we walked in the door. YAY! We found 2 more pennies and a dime. Four coins a few minutes after midnight. That qualifies for today! The streak continues! Plus Doc completed a lap around the store (to make it over 15,000 steps for the day). His new knee hardware is doing really well.
Had we not found a coin at that first store, we might have called Uber to go to the nearest Walmart for additional searching. LOL
Are we crazy or What!?!?!?
