First Sunrise at sea.
Queen Mary Day 2
The sun rose over the ocean to start the day. What a sight to behold.
While Phillip walked around the deck 4 times, Jennifer made her start to the day. Breakfast was held in the Britannia Restaurant. Jennifer had scrambled eggs and Phillip had a personalised omelette with English bacon. We returned to our room and after a while we both fell asleep for half an hour! Apparently many on board did the same.
Had a little wander around the ship finding shops and the library – all of a sudden it was lunchtime! So back to the Brittania Restaurant and instead of sitting by ourselves, we joined a table with a couple from Perth, two sisters, one from Melbourne and the other from Merimbula in NSW. Also at the table were a mother and daughter from Owen near Balaclava, Dorothy and Derrilee, who both knew the Kennetts of Kadina, probably Max’s and Keith’s father.
Once again the meal was delicious. After lunch Phillip spent time in the Library preparing a study for Bible Class while Jennifer did some shopping and had a wander around
Looking out the cabin at the deep blue sea.
The Captain advised that we passed Smokey Cape around noon and expected to pass Cape Byron about 8.00 p.m.
After some relaxation in the cabin we readied ourselves for the formal dinner! Dinner this evening was beautifully prepared barramundi for mains, with shrimp and broccoli soup for entrees. Fortunately the food sizing is just right which enabled us to have a dessert of steamed treacle pudding with custard!!!
After dinner we enjoyed some entertainment from a trio of young women dressed in beautiful 1950’s style dresses with hats. They sang 1950s and 1960s songs.
Off for another cup of tea before retiring to our cabin (or should we say Stateroom as they are called)! The ship is rocking a bit more tonight as there is a moderate swell of 7.5ft (2 ½ metres).
Goodnight to 15 March 2014.
