13.10.2016 - 13.10.2016
Another unusual morning as far as the sunrise was concerned. The sun was obscured by the fog again but textured clouds gave an overall different feel to the photograph. The challenge being what amount of zoom to employ. The fog also defused the edges creating problems for the auto-focus.
There was hardy anyone about in the Horizon Court and we had a quiet breakfast before heading hack to the cabin to prepare for the day. Jenny was off to the knitting group in Skywalkers and I had three lectures lined up to take me through to the afternoon. First up Peter Anderson on the topic of "Auroras", what causes them and lots of images to show off their beauty. He was followed by his wife Evon who covered the history of Pirates through to the present time. The recent emphasis of pirates is moving towards hostages for ransom or cargo for quick sale on the black market.
Then my No1 favourite topic 'Future Cruise' Tiffanie rattled off a total of 28 Repositioning Cruises between April 2017 and April 2018. They all require flights to the start and from the finish but these are the trips with the unusual Ports of Call. Rather keen on a Singapore to Vancouver for 36 days in April 2018. Will see about availability and prices over the next few days
Had a picnic lunch in the cabin with Jenny, the balcony was already way too hot. Then I got caught up with a movie on the TV and before I knew it time to get ready for the formal Monkey Suite. Lovely dinner, Jenny braved the lamb again and this time was not disappointed. Both of us indulged in the special Chocolate Journey to round off the meal.
The entertainment in the Theatre tonight was the tribute singer David Kidd. His tribute was to the legionary Tom Jones. He had it all, the looks, the manners and the VOICE. He held nothing back and belted out one after another of the songs made famous by Sir Tom. Great night, great finish.

Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
