At Sea I was pottering around the cabin this morning while Brian was at the gym and heard the announcement that the fire response team were to go to the Commodore Club pantry. I had visions of my beloved Commodore Club going up in smoke, so tuned the TV to the...

At Sea Yay! We are back in the tropics! It started off rainy this morning, and very humid. Then the sun came out, and we moved to the pool. It was lovely sitting outdoors again, and slipping in and out of the pool to cool off. There were too many people milling...

Akaroa I was awoken by the sounds of the tenders being lowered. I though this was a good sign – it could mean that we were preparing to abandon ship, but more likely it meant we had anchored in Akaroa, and they were getting things in place for us to go ashore. I...
