24.03.2014 - 24.03.2014
A warm, moist air caused the lens of the camera to mist up again. I should be used to it by now but every morning I'm confronted by the same problem. I might have to try going outside at least 30 minutes earlier to allow the camera to adjust to the prevailing conditions. Despite a fogged up lens I managed to catch a reasonable sunrise.
Today's routine followed our usual pattern, breakfast, Tai Chi for Jenny and lectures for me with a bit of a chat and some chapters of the current book. before you know it there it is Lunch Time !!
Managed to catch most Lesa Moore's lecture but due to the effect of lunch and an early morning, I think I missed quite a bit of what she had to say. Went back to the cabin and had a proper siesta !! Great dinner again and stuck my head out on deck to see the sky lit by the setting sun. I hurried back to the cabin for the camera and climbed up to Deck 9 where the lovely ladies of the Lotus Spa allowed me to access the only place on the ship that permits an unobstructed view of the bow. Shot off some spectacular sunset shots, slightly marred by condensation on the lens again.
Back downstairs to the Cabaret Lounge for Diane Cousins' final show. If anything, she was even better than her original show. What a voice and what a very funny lady. The members of the band were having a hard time holding it together.
Clocks go back 30 minutes tonight to adjust to Darwin time. I'll try to upload this lot tonight but it is getting late.
This link should take you to today's image on my 365 Project http://365project.org/tonydebont/365/2014-03-24
