14.10.2016 - 14.10.2016
Another restless night behind me and I struggled to be on the outside deck for the sunrise. The fog was there again and made any decent photographs impossible. My battle with the manual focus settings continue. Reluctantly faced up to some fruit for breakfast but could find no enthusiasm for it.
Back in the cabin succumbed to a severe bout of wracking coughs. That set the agenda for this morning. Forget about booking a cruise, get down to the Doctor.
The Doctor listened to my tale of woe and concluded that I'm suffering from the aftermath of the influenza. Not infectious therefore no isolation but another two sets of medication. Felt less than invigorated and decided to close the curtains and sleep away the day. Finally got up about 16:00 to catch up on the housekeeping. Feeling better but not great.
All through the day the ship has been thundering along at about 21 knots as we make our way through this troubled part of the world. Smaller merchant vessels sail in informal convoys to minimise their vulnerability we use our size and speed. I noticed yesterday that there were more security staff out and about and fire hoses are deployed in strategic locations on Deck 7. Subtle precautions for an unlikely event.
Ordered a Room Service meal as I still felt lethargic and couldn't be bothered getting dressed. Watched the BBC World News Service and caught up with the latest Trump scandal and the death of the Thai King.
As a last resort for today's image I've selected one of this morning's sunrise, you can view my photo by following this link to the image of the Foggy Sunrise
Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony.
