... run into the Glaswegians Robert and Jackie sereval times and Laura has stayed up to the wee hours drinking with Sian and Simon, farmers from Leiceuster whom we dined with. It's fun making shipboard friends. I'll be sorry to get off the ship tomorrow; it's getting more comfortable as I learn its rhythms; I still can get sort of lost on the top decks. I'm sure Frank has had a good time, but I don't know how enthusiastic he would be about another cruise. It's not on the schedule right ...

There was a get out of jail card, as when I zoomed in on that area on the ...
... Nevertheless, we still thoroughly enjoyed the trip down the fjord, especially as we were able to sail gently in the 8-10 knot breeze. We were not alone in enjoying the scenery, there was a speedboat with two couples aboard behaving erratically in the far distance. The reason for this became apparent when they zoomed up to join us – they were utterly, completely inebriated! It transpired that they had been to see Elton John on Friday night and hadn’t ...
