We stumbled upon a meteor shower last night too. Not sure if it's visible from the UK, we hadn't read anything about it, but happened to be outside on our own around midnight (still very warm) and saw 5/6 shooting stars in the course of half an hour, pretty special. It gave us another idea for a class on star gazing. As some of you will know, we were really looking forward to the darkness of being in the middle of the ocean to allow us to see more stars, but it seems even the ships own lights are spoiling that a little, we need to find a better spot on a high deck.
We're very much looking forward to getting to Barbados tomorrow morning, 8 straight days at sea has seemed like a long time, and you can tell everyone is getting a little bit itchy! It is starting to feel like a holiday now, as the temperature was 27C today, and both pools are in use and the open decks looking like rocky outcrops on a wildlife programme!
Another hour back tonight, so we'll be GMT -4 by the time we reach Barbados. No adverse effects felt yet from the slow time changes, it's just innate laziness keeping us in bed until 10am!
