Alaska cruise: Gooey dessert of the day (and a weigh-in)

OK, since my initial weigh-in, I held steady the first day (did brisk walks around the deck); lost a pound the second day (lots of walking around Juneau), but now I’m up two pounds. (The desserts are ganging up on me.) All I had for breakfast was Raisin Bran, grapefruit and yogurt. Honest.

Here’s the gooey dessert of the day.
