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.

23rd March 2014

We missed you again!!! Glad you are having a wonderful time, enjoying your blogs. Home news. Working bee Saturday at the hall and it looks so nice, it was really nice today to come to a shiny hall. We had the lovely news that today Jonathan and Vanessa have officially joined Kersbrook too. The Lunn's are leaving for Perth Thursday for the baptism of Abigail Hunter (grand daughter) Auntie Tina home sick today. She has a sore hip and couldn't walk too good. Meg had carpel tunnel op last week and has her hand all bandaged up. Bonnie is back now after her stressful trip to Perth to sort out her Mum into a nursing home. Pitts - well they are just the same. (They are a bit boring actually!!) Dad and Mum have gone to Robs for a couple of days. So it is quiet here. I thought it was us that was noisy!! It is low twenties and a shower or two of rain here or there. So that will be good for your garden while you are away. Look after yourselves. It sounds like you are having fun. We are enjoying all the photos. They look pretty professional to me! Lv Pitts xx
