Rockin' and Rollin'
The weather was good yesterday but there was a fair swell so we bounced about a bit. It's better today though and the foxtrot lesson we have just finished was not bad at all. It's a good dance also because it's one we have never learned in the past, so all good stuff.
Mum was ill last night and oddly enough, it was probably because she came up here (deck 13 - highest point on the ship) to do the blog whilst the ship was being chucked about. She just got a bit queasy so she and Len missed dinner. I skipped the main menu last night for the first time and had a sirloin steak. Previous night was a mixed grill of rabbit, ostrich and an exotic sausage of some sort. We stayed out later last night dancing and practising all the new footwork from the ballroom lessons.
The sea here is 3500m deep - yesterday was even deeper at 5000m - That's deep!!
This morning after breakfast we played shuffleboard - not very well! Later in the morning we had a guest speaker - Tracy Edwards. She was the skipper (and "creator") of the first all female round the world yacht race crew and you may remember the name of the boat was 'Maiden'. She was a great speaker and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to her life experiences. Played my banjo today for about an hour - it's slowly improving! Tonight is another formal night, so it's the bronze dress for Loraine and the white tux for me.
So that's it for today.
