With just two full days to go we've cleared the decks and are in the final stages of preparation. We've had our flue injections, topped up our prescription medication and made arrangement to hold our mail until we return. We've not tried that previously and we're keen to see how it works out. Not that there's been a problem in the past but we wanted to reduce the burden on our old mate.
I've made a start at selecting my clothes and subjecting my choices to the scrutiny of the 'style queen', I must be getting better or she's given up but most things were approved!!
Next task is to sort out the cables and chargers for the host of electronic devices. I counted them up and was surprised -
- 2 x Kindles (hers and mine)
- 2 x Camera Battery Chargers (hers and mine)
- 1 x iPad (hers)
- 1 x iPhone (hers)
- 1 x Android Smart Phone (mine), and
- 1 x Toshiba Laptop (mine).
All looks very evenly shared.
Printed off some extra luggage tags and brought the cases in from the shed. I plan to pack tomorrow and then check again on Sunday, after that anything I've forgotten I'll have to buy en route.
The cyclone activity around Northern Queensland appears to be diminishing but there's every possibility that new storms will develop. The storms don't worry me as I have complete trust in the seaworthiness of the ship and the competence of the Captain and crew. Smooth seas make for a more pleasant if less exciting cruise.
Will add more once we're aboard.
