Tuesday December 6
In the morning instead of sleeping in my mother woke me up. She told me we were going to sail to one of the royals' castles and stay there for two days. Fortunately the King is the father of Prince Joseph, so at least I won't be alone with no one my age. We plan to set sail at nine in hopes that we'll be there by lunch. Father has prepared the boats, we'll be on the Rosing. We named it in honour of our town. I have to go, I have to help mom pack. I'll bring my diary to the royals' and will write as soon as we unpack.
