Passing to the West of Borneo

Sunday, 30 March 2014

Another day at sea, another beautiful sunrise as we sailed West-NorthWest with Borneo to our starboard. At the behest of one of the head-waiters we decided to try the dinning room for breakfast. Times are 07:00 to 08:30 and we were there promptly at 07:00 so that Jenny could get to her Tai Chi. The breakfast was elegantly served and very nicely presented. We may do it again from time ti time.

I attended Lesa Moore's lecture who spoke about the great minds of science and astronomy. Jenny stayed for the church service and I went off to photograph various parts of the ship. Will have to do that again using the flash next time. Whilst out on the open deck I was surprised to hear an announcement warning of a rain squall in five or ten minutes and suggesting we seek cover. How nice !!

Tried the lunch in the dining room. An extensive menu with lots of great options. Jenny ordered a bacon burger and declared it the best she's had. The meals were certainly well prepared and presented. After lunch we sat through another Peter Headley presentation primarily to reserve seats for the afternoon movie. Today's offering was "12 Years a Slave", a powerful story which certainly deserved the three Academy Awards.

Dinner in the dining room was excellent as always and beautifully topped off with a delicious Black Forest Cake. It took some effort to climb up the stairs back to the cabin. A three course dinner is certainly more than either of us need.

I attended the show this evening, Jenny's still a bit drained after today's movie. The entertainment featured Paul Cincotta an Australian multi-award wining pianist. He played popular and classical number on the grand piano and a portable instrument that looked like a keyboard with the neck of a guitar. Well worth going to see.

Two more sea days to Ho Chi Minh City. Sorry for posting this only on alternate days but it is the best compromise with the state of the Wifi/Internet connection. Meanwhile if you want to see a photo of today's sunrise you can always follow this link which should take you to today's image on my 365 Project http://365project.org/tonydebont/365/2014-03-30
Cheers .. Tony
