03.10.2013 - 03.10.2013
Managed to capture the assent of the sun through the clouds over a 45 minute period. The little camera is doing a reasonable job but I really long for the replacement of its big brother. Normal breakfast at the Horizon Court and a short stint in the Crooners bar to read the Kindles. I went off to secure a seat for the Captain's Q&A session in the Theatre. There were no new revelations and the usual inane questions from the audience.
After this session a good number of us stayed for the Marine Biology lecture entitled "Tenacious Turtles and Slithering Sea Snakes". As always, very informative and entertaining illustrated by video footage taken by Dr Gloeta Nassie recently. Up to Deck 14 for lunch with today's theme being King Neptune and while there was an emphasis on fish in the buffet there wasn't the elaborate displays that have marked other themes.
Back to the stateroom to sort out today's images and to start this blog. Joined a fair crowd in the Theatre to listen to the Chief Engineer a jolly Irishman who was still talking 90 minutes later when I had to leave to get ready for dinner.
Dinner was an Italian themed menu and featured many interesting dishes. The ice-cream was particularly good tonight. I'm down from four scoops to two scoops to try and restrict the growth of the girth. Tonight's entertainment doesn't appeal to either of us so I will upload this now.
