We had containers of spiders, a snake, and food all piled on top of each other in the back of the jeep. Not your average load to carry.

    We went to see how the girls were doing because in all honestly we are not really used to leaving them with new people, and yes they were fine and having a whale of a time when we arrived but they did decide that it was defiantly time for a swim - and that's what we did for the rest of the day swim, tan, play on the beach and enjoy the lovely ...
