     I went out on the aft deck of 8 for pictures and was treated to the playing of the Star Spangled Banner from one of our US Navy ships, the USS Blue Ridge.  We had great entertainment at the pier.DSC00133IMG_1807

     We took the shuttle to the Robinson mall in town and Ray got a haircut.  We walked around a bit, shopped a bit and took the shuttle back to the ship.  It is a huge mall and Ray was tired.

     After dinner there was a fireworks competition going on between Italy and Holland.  Some passengers wanted to go to Corregidor and their ferry would be later than our departure.  The Captain had to leave the dock, so we anchored in the harbor and they returned via lifeboat and we watched the fireworks.  We were far away, but it was nice.
