It got close to lunch time, so I went up to the lounge and spent some time outside on the fore-deck taking photos of the scenery passing by.

We went into the lounge and then had lunch in the 'cafe' area at the bow just forward of the lounge. Mike and Lesley seemed to prefer to eat here, but there is more variety at the regular dining room
