We spent today cruising through the Coral Sea between the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. We had lovely weather, and it was a welcome restful day as we continue to adjust from travel.

Ian Toll, our special guest speaker, gave a wonderful presentation on the World War II History that happened where we were yesterday, where we are today, and where we will be heading for the rest of the voyage. It was a great way to set the stage for the amazing history we will see with our own eyes tomorrow when National Geographic Orion arrives in Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu.
