Tasman Sea – Day 1

Today was the first of our two scheduled Days at Sea. It’s been cloudy, cool, and windy, but that didn’t stop us from going to the gym, doing many laps on the track, and getting in the hot tub. It also didn’t stop us from eating. :-)

We attended another terrific lecture from Celia Garland, this time on Seals and Sea Lions (among the things we learned was how to tell seals and sea lions apart: if the animal has visible ears, it’s a seal; if not, it’s a sea lion).

The ship brought some Australian Border Force officers on board to clear everyone through immigration today; I suspect that this is a prime assignment for the Border Force officers!
