Frequent rain and thunder storms overnight broke the monotony of the grey overcast that has been the norm. Woke this morning to scattered clouds and some squalls on the horizon. Easily adopted the Sea Day routine. Breakfast together, Jenny off to the Knitters and some lectures for me.
09:30 Destination Benoa, Bali with Lyndon Jolly
10:30 The Planet Saturn with Peter Anderson
11:45 Lunch with Jenny
13:00 The First ANZAC Convoy with Evon Anderson
14:15 Commence sorting this morning's captures and think of things to write in this journal.
The excitement of the Melbourne Cup passed me without notice. In the absence of all the lead-up hype and having no knowledge of what horses are running it was of even less interest to me than normal. The ship arranged the live coverage shown on the Big Screen, in Club Fusion and on the stateroom TV.
There was an unusual announcement during dinner. The Medical Centre had a critical patient in need of a blood transfusion. Potential donors needed to have a current donor's card and be a specific blood group. Not more than 10 minutes later there was another announcement thanking the responders and there were now more volunteers than required.
Tonight's entertainment was provided by a little blond by the name of Chantelle Delaney, what a powerful voice !! Nice pair of legs too.
Clocks go forward an hour overnight and another sea day tomorrow and we cross the equator.
I was impressed by the texture of the clouds this morning and forms the feature image for today you can view my photo by following this link to the image.
Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony.
