Yesterday we had an amazing service which included some wonderful music from the last 90 years! We even had trumpets, violins and drums to go with the organ, guitars and piano. The choir sang beautifully too. After the service this photo was taken to replicate one taken on the same day in 1929. There weren't many suits or hats in this one!

I did get some stitching done on the cruise and since I came home. I did end up with a terrible flu for quite a few days! It was so very tiring and the coughing was awful! Thankfully I am fully recovered now. Here are a few pictures of the ship.
I kept up with my Stitch Therapy 365 blocks. I warn you there are a lot of them! I did number 50 today. This is a fun project.

Our next port was Akaroa. This is a lovely place and we chose to wander around first and then did a local bus tour on amazing windy roads and steep drops into the countryside. There is quite a french influence here due to early settlers to the area.
We then headed to Dunedin. We had booked a train trip here. It was the Seaside train to Waitati. It was just there and back and the scenery was lovely. The train station is just beautiful in Dunedin.
We then headed back and had lunch at Emersons Brewery which was recommended but our tour guide on the train. Very delicious.
We then went into town for a spot of shopping and then went back to the ship. The next day was scenic cruising in the fjords. What a gorgeous place this is and the day was perfect.
