Cruise Day 22 At sea

We got up at 6:45 to find that we had passed Brisbane in the night, and were off the coast from Mt Warning, which was clearly visible. It was also possible to see the tower blocks of the Gold Coast. We saw a couple more whales, then I had some Jackfruit & Mangosteen at the morning tea, before attending a lecture on memory by Dr Christian Heim, followed by “Navigation at Sea” presented by the Second Officer Richard Boydon, and “Technical @ Sea”, by the Third Engineer Richard Lloyd. I saw part of the Sandman show by Marcus Winter. It became much harder to spot whales in the afternoon as there white-tips everywhere. 
We didn't go to the restaurant at night, but went up to the Horizons buffet to have dinner, and I had lobster and caviar, and we opened our bottle of champagne. We caught up with Peter and Sue and went to the show, “Born to be Wild”, which was excellent. Darryl had a fairly ordinary day with his sporting events, and unfortunately it was the finals of most things.
