    ... group of English guys and a couple of the guys from the crew started playing this ninja game and it caught on quite quickly. They played it for a while with all us watching as various of them fell in the water. Again, nice to have people my own age. Lunch was then back on the boat, sandwiches and snack things. The sea urchins that they were feeding the fish, they had caught some during the day and we had no idea but you can actually eat them. First Tara, one of the crew, opened one ...

    ... and one girl, can you believe it, who lives in Worthing! Her name is Sophie and she lives ten minutes away from me, small world.
