South Pacific Survey, 19 June 1951, Apia

Had a day at home today due to the fact that they modified the "Kon Tiki" by themselves.

Went around the shops after writing a couple of letters to see if there were any bargains but there were none, everything very dear, lots of American foodstuffs, ie canned goods at a high price.

Saw the NAC crew and got what news I could from them. Morrie Pirie could not understand whey they should operate a Solent through here, as the traffic was in his opinion not warranted though it is of interest that they run almost full.

An exceedingly low tide here today and the American ship ThorII seems surrounded by reefs. Not a great deal of interest in this day's proceedings, so will close down.
