PNG Reflections

Some readers may have wondered where I’ve been, well just reflecting. All have been at home now for a few days after the cruise. We have lamented the Cowboys’ close loss and also coming a close third in ‘cruise along’ trivia.  Is there any moral in this? In both cases it seems being behind the pace in the early and middle stages makes it hard to come back at the end. Even if there are a couple of crook calls and missed answers.

The final two days on-board were ‘at sea’, cruising through the Coral Sea and then down the Queensland coast to Brisbane. Much happens on board the ship during ‘at sea’ days. Sitting around reading a book, enjoying a puzzle, keeping the ice cream parlour busy, lolling around in a good outfit, eating and having a good old chat. Quite tiring. I will let some pictures tell the story of the last days.

Well this is the last post for this cruise. All it seems had a good time visiting our near neighbour and relaxing on                                                  board. Just can’t wait to do it all again sometime soon!
