Began developing after breakfast and continued till about 2 P.M. developing 4 of my rolls and 2 of David’s. Came out well except that one of my rolls was a blank for no accountable reason. Cooled developer by placing the bottle in a wet sock and exposing to the wind, the resulting temperature being 78 degrees, the same as I used in the Manila hotel.
Everyone on board was in a good humour and seemed to enjoy the day. Had tea in the main room and enjoyed it. Am feeling distinctly better.
On account of not running the engines we only made 50 miles reaching a harbor with a small town on the northern end of Masbate, quite a large island. Anchored for the night.
Played a game of Chinese checkers with Anne and Fenton. Later won.
