What might have been

Weather remains good if a bit cloudy. As noted yesterday we did not get to Rabaul today. This was a disappointment. Lets move on though. This is why we did not go there. The volcano erupted about 3 weeks ago and threw up a whole lot of ash. Its covered everything apparently and the authorities have deemed it unsafe to enter Rabaul. So we did not going there. Instead we drifted around in the Solomon Sea for the day and tomorrow we will reach  Kiriwina Island in the morning.

The Rabaul volcano blowing its top  about 3 weeks ago. Ash everywhere the authorities say. Who is to doubt the authorities?

So we hit the food instead of the day trips! Breakfast, lunch and dinner have been devoured with gusto. There was also a couple of ice cream eaters amongst the team. As the day wore on the bar called and we prepared ourselves for the next round of ‘cruise along’ trivia. It seems we gained a point or two on the leaders , but still behind. It will continue tomorrow.

This was allthego the night before enjoying a 'Sail away Sangria'. It was tempting to have two of these!

Ship board life continued unabated through the afternoon and into the night. Ship board life is essentially eating, drinking and sleeping. After dinner Laree from LA dulled our senses again in the Orient bar with piano memories from the 50,60 and 70s. Others enjoyed the night show.

Tomorrow we will be back on song and will land at Kiriwina Island for more of the same!

Just can’t wait! It should be great!
