  12. Am very late to post today. Thanks for all the daily information, photos and humour. @aliaschief pleased that you are having such a good cruise, thanks for the photos. @kazu did you achieve everything on your list? I always make lists, today my list had to be abandoned. The electricity was off from 0910 to 1725, usually we are notified when outages are planned, but not this time. It has been a cold wet day, felt sorry for the men working on the replacement power pole, in the next street. Had lunch at a neighbourhood cafe....... delicious pumpkin and kumara soup. Stay safe, take care everyone.
  13. After my previous post, planted out some Sweet Pea seedlings, 10 minutes later the forecasted rain began, looks as though it will continue for tomorrow.

  19. Perhaps that is Khay who was our marvellous wine steward on the Volendam Australian Circumnavigation cruise in 2014, after the first 2 weeks she was moved to the lower dining room. If it is the same Khay, her birthday will be soon, we remember Captain Baijens locating her during dinner service to shake hands and wish her Happy Birthday. ( She was then working in the lower dining room, when we saw the Captain shake her hand, and asked our waiter why this was happening, he replied that the Captain always wished happy birthday to crew members).
  20. We have done the Australian Circumnavigation cruise twice, a really good cruise,hopefully we will have the opportunity to do another.
  21. That is very very sad, so much mis-information around, we are hearing strange reasons why people are reluctant to be vaccinated.
