Wednesday 11th March
We all ended up going into Brisbane using the shuttle bus from the ship. We wandered around the CBD and bought some cough and cold medications from a chemist shop. Stopped for a coffee and a sit down, wandered some more then got the shuttle bus back to the ship in time for a late lunch.
We’ll have an afternoon nap now and then wander up to the Sky Lounge later for our regular afternoon drinks.
We have a sea day tomorrow so we’ll probably do the bulk of our packing during the course of the day. We’re in Newcastle on Friday and we disembark in Sydney on Saturday. A train ride home on the XPT and then, sadly, it’s all over 🙁
There is a sad postscript to this. Less than nine months after this photograph was taken our friend David was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. David passed away early in 2016.
I’ll keep this post on our blog because this is how I want to remember my friend and cruising companion … the good times!
