Though it proved impossible to capture in a picture,
the ship "works" quite dramatically. From
the bridge you can see the ship bending with the forward
crane moving out of alignment with the other two as
waves pass under the bow.

It was overcast with strong winds and occasional squally
showers all day today. I battled on with the fiendishly
difficult jigsaw puzzle we brought with us - it depicts
a plan of the night sky and the constellations for both
hemispheres and consequently is mostly black with a
lot of little white dots of various sizes for stars.
Arthur, George and I did venture out along the main
deck to the bow. I had my Kate Winslett moment leaning
against the pulpit into to the force 7 wind but we retreated
back inside pretty rapidly.
At 1.15pm (mid-Atlantic time) today we had been travelling
for exactly a week!
Mum is getting worked up about this jigsaw, I
feel like stealing a piece but that might upset her
too much to get me roflmao, but seriously its all of
stars and constellations. That's not fun, that's tedious!
The Polish crew harder to get to know than most people.
By how much time I have spent talking to them I should
know them like mates but they have this weird way of
after you break the ice the ice comes back over night.
I think they see me as a very forward person because
of this, for example I talked to Darius (1st officer)
last night for at least 2 hours and when I gave him
a confident "Hello" the next morning he looked
rather taken aback.

The sea picture looks more scary that it was really.
