Before the dinner time of April 17, the ship passed by a ranch. Then, it began to rain. Lambs were seen to gather in front of a fence, seen at the above right in the photo,
as if to avoid getting wet.
The dinner was Dutch cuisine. The photo shows the main dish.
Around time for dessert, birthday cakes were brought to two tables along with the singing of "Happy birthday to you." On the ship, they celebrate passengers' birthday in this way. It was the birthday of a man at one of other tables (who came from Nara Prefecture) and me. Cakes were shared among those who were present at the same tables. My 77th birthday became a truly happy one to be celebrated by so many people.
The above photo, taken after returning home, shows the birthday card and gifts.
Only one more person had the birthday during this tour
(it happened on the last day).
