We really slept in this morning. The lack of darkness must have caught up with us, since we were in bed relatively early last night. After a late breakfast we did some walking then went to a lecture on the Fjords which was quite interesting. We had lunch where there were carved Viking heads and ships from watermelons - the heads in particular were very well done. Afterwards Christine returned to the cabin to read and I went to a lecture on Verdi's Operas.
As I was returning there were people outside obviously intent on something in the water. It turned out to be a whale. I got back to the cabin in time for Christine to see it spout. This is the first whale we have seen on this trip, though we are told there are many around here.
We spent the afternoon sorting our photos, updating the web site as we now seem to have reliable Internet again, and reading.
We got ready and went to the show. While parts of it were quite good, it was the poorest of the dancers and singers that we have seen. We had missed this one on the Baltic cruise. We then went to dinner and found we were alone with the Greek couple with the limited English as the other two couple had been invited to have dinner with the Chief Engineer. However, we found that, left to ourselves, we were able to communicate quite well and only a few times were we unable to understand each other.
We had our customary walk round the ship and then retired for the night.
