Started the morning with a walk to the beach with dad and Fynn, whilst mum went for a run. The water was a pretty blue colour and the sun was nice and warm on our backs. 

The late morning was spent wandering around the shops on the main street.  I Bought this black Bikini top that I had been looking for.  Dad left early to cook some sausages on th BBQ down by the beach.  When we got there dad had already cooked the saugases so we went on the beach and ate them along with grapes, yogurt and choc chip cookies.   After lunch we went to the look outs, the view was amazing!
When we got back to the resort Fynn and I went in the pool,  we went in out in out all afternoon. After we had enough of the pool we went to go see the feeding of the Groper at a bar on the harbour- its a MASSIVE fish.   Then we went to have dinner at a nice restaraunt,  I had dinosaur nuggets and chips with salad.   We walked along main street and got an ice-cream for sweets.

Then the funniest part of the day was  CANE TOAD RACES....... We got a ticket as we walked in and it had a number on it.  The man that was running the show (OO)  picked out 6 tickets, my number was 29,  I said to dad before he called the numbers out that if he pulls my number out you can go up and be the jockey.  Sure enough my number was called,  dad made me go up.  My toad was named Sir Lancelot.  We were made to pick our toad out of the bucket, give it a kiss for good luck then place it into the racing bucket... It was soft and sticky,  I lightly kissed it (hopefully I dont get warts).. eeeeww!
The race soon started and we had to get the frog onto our hand when it came to the edge of the table, the only thing we could use was a cane toad whip (party blower).  I was a couple lengths out in front but when the toad got on my hand he decided to jump again onto the floor and then again. I just came second.
OO then auctioned off the toads for the second race, mum  bought Liberatchie for Fynn to race. Fynn had to also go through the pre race procedure,  he ended up coming fourth in his race.
We hung around after to listen to a couple of songs by Dan England, he was on idol. On the way home we relived the cane toad races.  It was a very funny nite!!!
