Where I stayed
Rydges Hideaway Resort
After dropping him off it was off to the hairdressers with Lucy to get her plaits done.....................one and a half hours later we emerged. It was well worth it though as she was over the moon with the finished results. We were finished just in time to collect Dan, and a little while later Jeff returned from two dives, having had a good time and seen plenty of life.
After lunch we collected two wetsuits that Alex from the diveshop had kindly lent us and headed for the reef again
Once we got out of the water the children were so excited, talking about what they had seen - the snorkel gear was a definate great buy :-)
Jeff and the children then spent the rest of the afternoon playing in the pool and on the slide while I had a massage :-) :-) Jeff had booked it in the morning - I was a little nervous as apart from an aqua massage I had some years ago I had never had a massage, never mind a full body massage! I really didn't know what to expect. Anyway it was absolutely great - laid on a table with the sound of real waves crashing on real rocks and she did a great job. She found all the trouble areas in my back and really gave them a good workout. It was brill.
Once back with Jeff and the kids all I wanted to do was go to sleep! Very relaxed and chilled - I wonder how long that will last!
The children really wanted to watch the fire ceremony again and Dan and his buddies ran round the resort with the chap lighting the flames. Lucy and Dan then enjoyed playing on the drums!
We had a lovely last meal in the hotel with our favourite waitress and then Lucy and Dan convinced us that they would be able to stay awake to watch the hotel show (the entertainement that we had missed every night due to us all being so tired!) They managed the first song/dance and then both crashed. Jeff and I enjoyed it and then carried two very tired children off to bed.
