It was music, music, music as we cruise aboard the good ship Carnival Imagination on its four day excursion to Mexico.
Once again we joined Jerry Turner and his group of Bluegrass musicians on what is their annual Cruise2Jam.
This is the ninth Carnival cruise for the group and the fourth time we have joined them.
Aboard were a large group of musicians skilled in the string instruments that create the Blue Grass sound. Aboard ship their circle gatherings take place on various parts of the ship deserted by regular passengers and scheduled events.
The instruments include mandolin, upright bass, guitar, fiddle, resophonin guitar, banjo, mouth harp and harmonica. Blue Grass is a form of country music that has evolved over generations of Americans.
Despite some stormy skies the sea has been remarkably smooth and so there are hundreds of happy folk aboard including this Writer.
Tomorrow we will a lot to say about the fine cuisine we have been enjoying and the remarkable talented culinary and service staff.
