28.09.2013 - 28.09.2013
The early dawn gave way to a better than expected sunrise. There was a good mixture of light, cloud and the ocean. Routine breakfast and back to the stateroom. I had to call the customer service desk to have a member of the security staff unscramble the combination lock of our in-room safe. You are required to enter the code each time you lock it, last time I had obviously miss-keyed a digit.
Time to dig out the Kindles to fill in some time before Jenny's craft and my marine biology sessions. Lunch in the dinning room was not as pleasant as yesterday's with a rather obnoxious couple making up the table of six. The "Rum'n'Raisin" ice-cream was pretty good though.
Some more R&R before preparing for dinner.
We were an almost complete party for dinner tonight. Barbara is still in hospital and Barry joined us to bring us up to date. Tomorrow, Barbara will leave the ship to be admitted to the local hospital and be treated by a specialist. Barry has asked me to take care of their access baggage which he can't manage ashore. I've agreed to store it aboard and hand it over to a courier in Sydney when we arrive. Poor old bugger is doing it tough.
Just picked up the cases from Barry and found room under the bed to store them. He keeps on saying he doesn't know how he's going to cope with all the arrangements without Barbara there to direct him. Feel a bit inadequate that we can't do more to help.
