This morning's sunrise failed to deliver any notable images. The buffeting wind and the ship's motion created havoc with the camera's auto-focus mechanisms. The temperature has also dropped dramatically causing me to reconsider my sandals, shorts and shirt attire. Adequate indoors but will need to find long pants and even a jacket for tomorrow's visit to Fremantle.
Standard routine after a joint breakfast Jenny off to her knitters and me to the theatre for a trio of lectures. Lyndon Jolley espoused the attraction of Margaret River and the town of Busselton. Peter Anderson provided a detailed analysis of the NASA Moon Landings to debunk the many conspiracy theories that refute them. Shared a lunch with Jenny who had found time to shop for bargains on Deck 5. After lunch Evon Anderson provided a detailed description of the sinking of HMAS Sydney off the Western Australian coast during WW2.
With no useful images for my daily upload I prowled the public decks in search of subjects. I finally latched unto a group of people in Club Fusion being instructed in Line Dancing. I also discovered that the Crown Grill is utilised by card players and others reading books.
After dinner we went to the Theatre where the entertainment featured both Patrick McMahon and La Forza. Full house 15 minutes before show time, obviously the word has got out that they are both top class acts.
A day in Fremantle awaits us tomorrow and marks our official return to Australia. It will also mark a return to our mobile phone service which we haven't used since leaving home seven weeks ago. There are a number of people we'd like to make contact with.

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