Herself: Cranky till I saw the sea flowing by, till I stood at the rail and felt amazed.
The travel writer, Peter Knego, often wanders around the ships he’s on photographing them in the best light. Here and there you will find moments where he says….”Random Carpet Photograph.” These amuse me no end. Today, laughing at myself, laughing at G, and laughing at Peter, I took random carpet photographs among the more traditional ship views.
And it is a traditional ship. We were warmly greeted, delighted by the Indonesian lunch, and wandered the ship until stuffed into our lifejackets….men at the back wall for women and children first. That was a new one to me.
Dinner with a delightful table filled with a greyer haired generation, skipping desert to catch the early show….why not just smile and have fun. We found under the bed space for the suitcases, the internet café, and even a room for computer lessons. We didn’t look hard this first day for Friends of Bill….AA meetings on board, but we did find chocolate.
