Our first full day under sail – or diesel. However, we’re well used to amusing ourselves under such conditions – split the day up, with dice, cards, some reading, some writing, mealtimes – the time passes fast. My knee is causing concern – where the marshmallow burned it has not healed up properly, + we understand it costs $20 to visit the doctor in Papeete. Most of our fellow passengers seem listless – there is some sickness going around, especially an eye-disease, so we must be careful.
A very thin entry, reflecting the lack of anything much to write about, such being life on board. But concerns about our health, and money, where $20 seems an enormous outlay.
