How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count the Ways (5/9/08)

Oh Nordstrom Salon Shoes. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee as a pair of camel-colored 2 1/2" Jimmy Choo pumps cut fetchingly around the vamp to the point of almost having a d'Orsay profile. I love thee as a pair of black patent leather Manolo Blahnik 70mm d'Orsay pumps. I love thee as a pair of black lambskin patent leather Prada flats with rubber driving soles and a fetching buckle on the toes.

After an afternoon of shopping for shoes, mom and I dropped off our bags at the pier and took a bus tour of the city. We finished up at Pike Place Market, where we bought some wine and stopped at the original Starbucks for a latte. From there we headed to the ship and boarded around 9pm.

I'd read comments on Cruise Critic about how Infinity was getting worn down and was looking kind of tatty, but I didn't see it. Infinity is lovely, modern with a hint of reference to Art Deco, and in very good condition. We stopped by the S.S. United States specialty restaurant to book for dinner, and were wowed by the carved glass panels of jelly fish and other sea creatures, and loved the Art Deco touches including red leather upholstered seating. We're looking forward to eating there on Mother's Day. We wound up the day in the Martini Bar, listening to a very nice piano-saxophone combo.
