26.03.2014 - 26.03.2014
Since we left Darwin the sea has been mirror-smooth with barely a ripple to disturb the surface. There were enough clouds to the East to provide for a spectacular sunrise. After a show like that it is difficult to see how there can be anything wrong. Spent some time at the destinations lecture featuring our next port of call - Komodo Island. The 'dragons' are reputed to be the largest lizards on the planet.
Visited the buffet for lunch and spent some time reviewing my images before the next lecture at 13:45 in the Cabaret Lounge. Sat through Peter Headley's talk on the Ancient Seafarers, he's not the most interesting person to listen to. Shortly after his talk we were entertained by Lesa Moore who covered the topic of tides and other aspects of the earth's relationship with the moon,
At 17:15 we assembled in the Cabaret Lounge for the Captain's Circle party, an impressive 82% of all passengers are repeat cruisers. Almost half of these are at the 'Elite level' - the little guy in the laundry will have been very busy this cruise.
Formal night tonight and that means lobster tails on the menu. It was exquisite and Jenny's steak melted like butter in the mouth. Tonight's entertainment is one of the 'production' shows and we just aren't keen on them. I'll try to upload this lot tonight but there have been reported problems with the satellite link. Will try again tomorrow if it fails.
I'll try for something more interesting tomorrow, meanwhile you can always follow this link which should take you to today's image on my 365 Project http://365project.org/tonydebont/365/2014-03-26
