The Southern Pacific.............
Hello friends! Unable to do much posting here, very slow Internet connection, and the cost is prohibitive! Images take ages to load so you just get one for now, sorry!
This was my first glimpse of Orion as we rode the shuttle to the wharf in Auckland, NZ.
All I can say for now is that everything is amazing. I feel as if I'm living a wild dream - the people are great, the food delicious, life aboard a small ship like nothing else. 72 passengers and 70 crew!
Heading to the first islands, the Chatham, 500 miles out in the wild blue sea. Tomorrow we expect to land via Zodiac boat. Camera will be at the ready so all those wonderful seabirds, penguins, seals had better be ready to have their portraits taken.
Not sure when I will be able post again, but will try asap.
