Well here we are in The heart of bandit country and not a pirate in Sight. There was a sighting of a US Frigate this Morning but it was 5 miles away so you couldn't see much, the captain also told us that there was a sub in our area but we sure didn't see it! Still no complaints as we are all safe and well. Today I was feeling that I should not take this all for granted. I spent the day cruising along the gulf of Aden in blazing sunlight. There was a man carving a hugh block
Of ice into a fish and also a poolside BBQ with a live band playing all sorts of tropical songs live also by the pool. Even cheesy songs like oh we're going to Barbados seems OK when your in
Today I done a brief photographic survey of the ship so I have a record of all the main rooms that we used on the holiday, that took a couple of hours. A bit dull but the sort of thing you have to do as sure as eggs is eggs someone will ask to see the restaurant etc. etc. as soon as we get home.
Tonight we went to see a magician in
The theatre. He was fine but the best bit was he invited Wendy up on the stage. It was great fun she was his helper as he tied himself up and then got out of the knots. Afterwards loads of people were coming up to her asking her if it was real and if she knew him etc. she was like a real celeb. Not quite up
To your standard Karen !!!
We finished the evening up on top deck looking at the stars and looking out for pirates, about as rare as teenagers on
This ship. The stars however were in their full glory tonight. It helps when we are running the pirate security as most of the ships external lights are out therefore it is much darker and so better to look at the stars. They should have an expert to do talks on the stars at night this would I'm sure be over subscribed as we can see loads of stars but not too sure what half of them are. I'm ok with the plough and Venus but after that I'm a bit lost.
So in summary another fine day at sea - which by the way is as calm as a mill pond. Only a couple of days to sharm and a bit of snorkelling looking forward to that. We need to enjoy this rest because once we get to sharm it's a bit full on For a few days with trips etc.
Take care all...
