Our day was so relaxing, with not much to do so I decided to give you a glimpse of what “smooth sailing looks like.
You may notice on the screen above that our “apparent Wind is just a few knots higher that our “SOA” (speed of advance), so the wind crossing our bow was gentle and very warm.
I have dubbed this “Dueling Thunderheads” and it looks like we will split a channel between them. I would put my money on the one to starboard.
Nothing to see here folks, but a very calm sea.
Another painting by the ship using the water for a canvas.
Darwin and Australia are on the distant horizon, what nice scene with which to hail our final farewell.
Tomorrow we will arrive at the anchorage for Dili, around 8 AM, and according to the Captain the officials work on “South Sea Time”. (My interpretation)

Leaving tracks in the sea. Pictures would be great on the PC desktop. Maybe you could forward a couple of these to me after you get home. What a pleasant day.
Oh, Jack! That gorgeous, calm, sultry sea! Thank you for vicariously transporting me there for one heck of great daydream!
(With you permission, may I use the “dueling thunderheads” photo in my blog?)
All the best, Shipmate!
