On Board S. S. Mariposa, Day 3

August 8, 2nd day out, warmer and fair
Horse races again, then shuffle board with Virginia, Don (Weeder) and Mr. Matthews. Learned to play cribbage with Dan after lunch, then tea. Cocktails with them again and then a rotten movie after supper. Dancing afterwards. Still lots of fun.

Met Don at the Queen’s Hospital to see Virginia. She’s had a miscarriage. Don and I came out and had lunch at the Waikiki Tavern, came home and played cribbage and parted for good. Francis and Dick came by and we went for a long and beautiful ride. Went to Pally where the wind blows so, saw the upside down falls and the blow hole – really blowing. Drinks here, then dinner at Felix’s and more drinks at South Seas. To Club 13 whereupon Dick and I went sound asleep.
