Day 28 - More Sea

Not much to tell today.  Last night we went to the show to hear a baritone singer.  Although he supposedly has sung with the Australian symphony, we were not impressed.  I got the feeling that he either had a cold or just hadn't warmed up.  The first few songs he sang were a bit flat.  He did do a nice job of singing Leonard Cohen's Halleluiah and a medley from the Phantom of the Opera.  Unfortunately, I am one of the few people who do not like the music from Phantom of the Opera. 

No photos today.  There has been nothing but open sea out our window all day.  We did attend a good lecture this afternoon on "Captain Bligh - Life After the Bounty".  Our reef pilot, Captain Wallace Cray gave this talk as a follow up to his lecture on Captain Bligh's life leading up to the mutiny on the Bounty.  It was really a great talk.  Capt. Cray is an excellent speaker and really knows this topic.

There was another lecture this morning, "An Introduction to South East Asia", but our timing was off so we missed it.  Luckily we will be able to see it on TV.  They record all the lectures and replay them for a few days. 

Don't get me wrong, there are lots of other things to do on the ship.  We just happen to enjoy the opportunity to sit on our balcony or in the room, read or play games, and watch the ocean go by.

Tomorrow afternoon we will land in Darwin, so I hope to be able to write more tomorrow night.
