Poole - still

Absolutely nothing to do with any virus, Corona or otherwise. We are still in port because the ship has not yet passed some Coastguard inspection. Usually they give passengers staggered embarkation times so that the process is smooth and quick, but with inspectors still on the ship, we all queue up in a waiting room and the boarding process takes hours. Initially we are told that departure will be delayed from 3pm until llpm. Just recently a second announcement to say we'll leave 24 hours late. I reckon they'll skip Belfast to get us back on schedule.
I have been eating circumspectly, laying off wine and coffee to avoid seasickness, all for nothing.
