A nice day at sea – a nice change after several ports.
I resorted to taking an antihistamine for my PND so I am feeling out of focus. Fortunately, this is a non-thinking day.
At 11:00 AM, we went to hear Sir Ivan Lawrence – again no new information but he is entertaining.
Today’s lunch was the Pub Lunch in the Golden Lion – I ordered a double serving of the Fish and Chips – great lunch (the best of the cruise) along with a half liter of ale. Bad combination – antihistamine and ale.
The lectures continued after lunch.
At 12:15 PM, we caught a little bit of Gary McKechnie in Illuminations. The lectures was about Elvis Presley – expected that this topic would draw a large audience but attendance is still pretty small. Maybe not a super lecture oriented group of passengers.
After some time on the deck (cool and breezy), we attended part of the 3:30 PM lecture by Robert Neal Marshall. This one, also sparsely attended, was the “History of the Newsreels”
At dinner tonight, only one of two pre-ordered mushroom soups arrived. For some reason, dinner took a long time but the risotto and pistachio crusted salmon were OK.
We attended Showtime featuring British Comedian Roy Walker – he was a hoot.
