The day that wasn’t
For us, there was no Sunday, 11 November 2007. The ship’s clock leaped forward twenty four hours at midnight to Monday, 12 November 2007. We did not pass Go. We did not collect $200.
By my reckoning, we didn’t cross the date line until after 7:00pm, but it’s easier to skip a whole day than to go from the middle of Sunday to the middle of Monday. Additionally, we should have gained an hour as we went from GMT minus 10 hours to GMT plus 13 hours. That adjustment wouldn’t occur for the ship’s clock until the next day.
