At the beginning of his talk he mentioned going through the straights of Messina. This is the narrow portion of water between Sicily and the toe of the boot of Italy (kinda like Italy is kicking a football - err soccer ball). The currents, winds, and water can be a bit tricky, but for us it was no problem. The bad weather from the previous day had left us, so it was beautiful weather. At the narrowest point it is only 1.9 miles wide.

The second talk was by award winning White House Reporter for US News and World Report - Ken Walsh on "The Consequential Presidency of Donald Trump." He did an excellent job of being unbiased and tried to discuss the disruptor in chief that our president is attempting to be.
We then met Alex and Brenda for lunch in the dining room. Julie had the most interesting lunch, a deconstructed steak salad.
After lunch, we relaxed and eventually went to the Mozart tea up in the Palm court. It was typical and excellent. Live chamber music, wonderful snacks, and great tea.
Tonight was formal night and a new thing that they've added recently is the Stardust Supper Club. They have a restricted menu from the Waterside dinner and with the venue being in the Stardust Lounge and live music performance by the Crystal Band and several singers and dancers. It was wonderful. It is very intimate and was perfect for us since the tables are all for 4 and the event was fully subscribed at 100 people.
