Port Vila - Vanuatu

The sea is calm, the wind mere zephyrs and clouds stretch from horizon to horizon. There is no visible sunrise and even difficult to locate where the Eastern horizon is located. After breakfast we read our Kindles for a while and waited for the ship to dock at Port Vila. Shortly after the scheduled arrival time of 10:00 we were alongside and lines set.

We walked off with no intention to go all the way into the town. We spent about an hour walking past all the stalls that line the road. There wasn't much variation in the produce on offer. Jenny managed to spend $20 on a cute doll, a small purse and a cap for me.

By the time we returned to the ship my shirt was soaked through. The ships windows looked as if rain was falling on them but it was just the condensation from the humidity. It was a similar sight on deck 14 where we had a quick lunch. Spent some time back in the cabin and examined today's Princess Patter for things that may interest us. Looks like the movie 'Wolverine' is the best chose.

Two hours of unimaginable action and violence with a barely plausible story line. There were lots of amazing stunts and spectacular images of Japan, it was interesting to recognise the scenes from the Tokyo Railway Station however brief.

Dinner was excellent as always and we were all done by 19:00. Jenny has decided to attend the Trevor Knight Concert in the Theatre while I elected to stay and read the Kindle. The cabin creaks and groans as we are underway again with a gentle rocking motion. Should be no trouble going to sleep tonight.

Clocks go forward an hour tonight, bringing us into the Fiji Time Zone.

We loved Vanuatu but remember the humidity as the worst we've ever experienced.

We just drove past the stalls with Captain Jack.
