We sighted the junk ahead at about 10 AM passing her very closely so I could take some pictures. It occurred to me this might be the only opportunity I would have to take her with all sails set and under way.
We arrived at the anchorage off the north coast of Marinduque island at 11 AM. David, Anne and I went fishing in the launch with one of Quezon’s guests. David caught one and I caught one, which we had for lunch. Wt. about 5 lbs.
We are now definitely started on the cruise. The junk is anchored nearby and we will board her for good tomorrow when the Casiana starts for Manila.
There is a small notice in my cabin – “Breakfast is served at your pleasure. Your cabin boy’s name is ‘Jesus’” Mr Garcia, Chief Steward.
Quezon and three others, Rogers, Peters, and ? played bridge constantly and Peters said he was “fed up with it.”
David caught 3 fish in the afternoon but I rested and did not go. Later we all went over to the junk.
At dinner on the Casiana I heard it hinted that Quezon was starting tonight for Manila and sure enough after dinner we said good bye and went to the junk. The Casiana left at 9 PM. Being aboard her with the President was an interesting experience but I was glad to get to the junk and away from luxurious discomforts of air conditioning.
We decided to leave at midnight. I slept on deck as my state room was stuffy and impossible and with no port hole and inadequate ventilation. El Templo Island, then San Pascual, on island of Burias.
