All day at sea today and it's pretty rough! Been feeling a bit wonky all day with the rolling sea ! The sun came out this morning so enjoyed a bit of heat for a couple of hours up by the pool. They were having a Germany day with giant blow up beer mugs and pretzels. Entertainment team were running quizzes and activities similar to a school fair.

Harold passed away this morning so day has been saddened with that news, but a blessing he is no longer suffering. Rung Bex and her and Grant have swung into organisation mode to give him a good send off! So proud of my kids :) This mornings tour was the villages of Crete.

I got some pictures as well.
