After breakfast Grant and I decided to head out and find a snorkel spot. Our scooter's fuel gauge wasn't working so we took a trip to Oleander at the dockyard where they swapped our bike for a different one.
We then headed down to the old 9 Beaches resort/Daniel's Head resort and found a calm desserted spot. We found plenty of pretty coral and our highlights were a porcupine fish and a green moray eel. The secluded spot was ideal for a spot of sunbathing to dry off after our snorkel. When we got back to our apartment, we suspected that Dad hadn't moved very far as he was addicted to his book!
We prepared some veggie burgers on the grill for lunch and then Grant and I headed out on the scooter to the supermarket in search of some goodies for the evening.
So along with the surprise trip to Bermuda for Dad's birthday, we have also been hiding another massive surprise from him.....our close friends from South Carolina (Sharon and Neil) were arriving at 3pm this afternoon and have booked an apartment just below us! Oh how to tell Dad.......
Well at 6pm we tell Dad that we are going to order a take away pizza for dinner. At 6:30pm someone knocks at the front door of our apartment, who can it be? Not in Dad's wildest dreams would he expect to see our friends standing at the door so he tries to give Neil the cash for the non-existent pizza! When he finally realises who it is standing in front of him for once, Dad is truly speachless.
A lovely evening of food, drink and chat....not bad considering Sharon and Neil have been up half the night catching a flight to Bermuda via New York.
