30.01.2014 - 30.01.2014
A relatively calm sea, wind about 30 knots and almost total cloud cover this morning. No joy with regard to the sunrise leaving me with a dilemma as to what to capture aboard.
Our routine for sea days is pretty well established, breakfast, read, attend talks, read, lunch, read, watch a movie, get ready for dinner. Each day the same and yet slightly varied. Interesting people met, crew members who are especially attentive. Individuals who ask "Which way is the Theatre ??" A little old lady having trouble getting her cabin door open. The vacuum system that flushes the toilet bowl fails, ring the front desk, someone presses a button, problem solved. Each event quite insignificant but memorable.
After lunch we decided to watch the Afternoon Movie - "Blue Jasmine" staring Cate Blanchett, we walked out 40 minutes into it. Jenny had been nudging me because I was nodding off, so decided to snooze properly -in bed.
Enjoyable dinner and great conversation with the couple on the other half of the table. Originally there had been a privacy screen between us- their request not ours. After a few evenings they asked if we'd mind if it was removed. We agreed and it was whisked away. There was a belated change to the itinerary due to some massive rain storm and flooding at Port Denarau, we are now making for Suva.
Jenny attended the show and I stayed back in the cabin to read and snooze. Quickly fell asleep to the vigorous rocking of the ship, we both find it soothing.
