An island in the Thursday Island group (I think)
Queen Mary Day 7
Running up the north coast of Queensland with islands scattered on both sides of the vessel. Breakfast as normal and a lecture by a former Ambassador, Ric Smith, representing Australia in India, China, Indonesia and other parts. There was a slight hint of muggy misty rain at times but it was hardly worth noting. The humidity is getting closer to 100%.
Lunch with a twist. Eating Spring Bok, now that would have to be a must have again sometime. Not a lot of other activity as we relaxed on board heading towards Thursday Island and running south under PNG across Gulf of Carpentaria. Near one of the islands a chap in a rusting tinnie came out to meet the boat and was standing up while his flimsy craft bobbed up and down on the ocean waves.
There were problems loading photos with this blog - we are somewhere in Indonesian waters north west of PNG.
Goodnight to 20 March 2014.
