Anne wanted me to read poetry to her and she was so pleased with “The Ancient Mariner” that she made me read the whole thing over again on the upper deck. Anne does not get at all seasick, but Hugo, Fenton, Marian and David were all seasick. I seem to be immune on this cruise.
Kilkenney became particularly aggravated by Anne today and told me how disgusted he was with the whole situation. Most of the time, however, he has seemed pretty cheerful and as though he was enjoying the trip. He told me that he had only gone into shell collecting to divert his mind.
According to our dead reckoning we were within about 25 miles of the islands at 10 P.M. so we altered our course to due north so as to follow the shore of the large island which was 35 miles long. I stayed up till about 11 P.M. but turned in fully dressed on deck. Ted stayed up all night.
