Saturday. You would love to be on this voyage; to me it is most
enjoyable. The sunrise in a morning is a very pretty sight. The
other day we caught a glimpse of the coast , and it being a
mountainous part, some of the peaks were snow-capped and the early
morning sun shining on them presented a bonny sight.
