I was up early yesterday, just as the sun was rising over the Tasman Sea and the ship was coming alive. People drifted slowly into the Lido Deck dining room and the hum level in the room rose steadily. It was our first full day at sea and the ship was rolling more than either of us expected. So far, I’m not having any ill effects other than the inability to walk a straight line. At least there are no DUI checks onboard.
The travel journal is going to look a little different as we try to conserve bandwidth. We’re on a strict 300 mb limit each day and we have no idea how far that will go. So, at least for now, I’m switching things up a bit.
Today was a tough day for Kathy because she suffered from a bit of motion sickness. This has never happened before so we’re not sure what caused it, but a day lost at sea (so to speak). Here are a few photos, including some from last night’s departure from Sydney.
