Dawn Princess World Cruise 2010 - Monday May 24, 2010

Day 4 Townsville to Lizard Island
Today we passed Cairns and Port Douglas where we could see the long beaches, and many smaller islands, so we were in sight of land for quite a good part of the day. Bill and I learnt to do the Samba today, and we went to a lecture by Richard Detrich on Navigating the World. The main focus of the talk was Magellan. The talk was well prepared and well delivered, and revised much of my semi forgotten grade five history. Tonight we listened to the ship’s big band for a while, and then watched the movie, Old Dogs, with John Travolta and a rather rapidly aging Robin Williams. It had some funny parts to it. Sadly, we heard from John today that Joan is not at all good. We now have two messages on the phone but are unable to access them because we are out of range. (Barbara) Currently, I am writing this with a monocle on my left eye. My glasses fell out of my pocket and a waiter stepped on them while serving dinner at our table. Hopefully all will be fixed in Darwin. Dropped into the Karaoke Bar tonight for a beer and listened to some truly awful renditions for some old favourites. (Bill)
