Mon. Dec 1. [1 December 1902] Delicious warm day - running down
Crete [Kriti]. Mount Ida [Idhi Oros] snow capped above clouds. I
seem to be forever passing down the coast of Crete. Last time was in
June! In the afternoon it blew hard and the sun rose. The decks were
wet forward but this boat is so steady that we felt no motion. Played
Patience with Miss Thornwill before dinner and Bridge after with Mrs
Gascoyne instead of Diana. Ports closed which was extremely
tiresome and woke with a headache in consequence.
