Church on Palmerston
30 August 2017
Sunday came along and Edward picked us all up in time for church. Ladies had to wear a frock (I hadn’t heard that word in a long time) and a hat. Most of us only have sun hats but Sheila, Edwards’s wife, had a few spare and made sure we were suitably dressed for church. It was a very traditional church where the ladies sat on one side and the men on the other. Given that there were 18 cruisers at church, we seemed to fill at least half of this small church. But the vicar certainly made us feel welcome. The singing was incredibly melodic for such a small group of people and a pleasure to listen to. After church, we all participated in a potluck where Edward’s family supplied local pork, chicken and bosun bird and we supplied side dishes and desert. It was a delight to share Sunday lunch with Edward and his family. And once again in the afternoon back on the boat we go whale watching without having to move. Made cocktail hour a real delight.
