February 27, 2019,  Sea Day   47/183

Roger gave a lecture on Gettysburg:  yes a Scottish Professor cruising along the East cost of New Zealand gave an excellent accounting of the greatest battle of the American civil war.  I will not attempt to encapsulate any part of his presentation on this epic historical confrontation, as I  would do it no justice.  I have attached several photos which do convey a sense of the impact of this momentous event.

On the lighter side, Roger offered an explanation of the derivation of the word "Politics".

poli -  Greek or Latin for many....
tics  -  Blood sucking insects...

Our evening was capped off by classical pianist Krzysztof Malek!

Spent day cruising to Wellington along the East coast of the North Island
