Overnight the ship has changed course slightly and is now sailing NorthEast. This places the sunrise off the starboard bow. The swell continues to rock the ship but the sick bags have been removed. The sunrise started quite ordinary and then developed briefly into a spectacular showing. Breakfast with Jenny is likely to be the feature event of the day. There isn't much in the Patter that appeals.
Some paperwork needs our attention, we have an appointment to meet with the authorities in Mauritius when we arrive there on Monday. Looks like another full passport check complete with Arrival and Departure documents. Tomorrow is Reunion Island, amazing to find this outpost of France in the middle of just about nowhere.
Attended the talk by Lyn Hurry in the Theatre and after a quick lunch returned there to listen to David Knight. His seminar dealt with Hypnotism for Health and the power of the mind to address all manner of ailments. I didn't receive all the instructions for self hypnosis, I think I nodded off. David is also billed for tonight's Entertainment as the Comedy Showtime in the Vista Lounge.
We've seen the movie showing in the Theatre and decided to watch a movie on the TV in the cabin. The Draft features Kevin Costner and was a clever portrayal of the wheeling and dealing that goes on behind the scenes in the annual NFL drafts. It would have been more meaningful if we'd had a better understanding of American Football. It was interesting enough to keep me awake and that's an endorsement.
Enjoyable dinner tonight finally received some laundry back, just as well as I was almost out of undies. Went to the Vista Lounge to see what David Knight's comedy show was all about. I don't know what made me think his show would be any better than others we've seen. His wasn't. Perhaps I'm sceptical but all I see is some pathetic individuals making a fool of themselves.
We have an afternoon tour on Reunion Island tomorrow. Be interesting to see how this differs from other tropical islands in remote places. I hope this is not becoming totally boring but I've selected another sunrise image, if you have time you can view it by following this link to the image for Today
Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony
