Jeff was up bright and early as he was going diving at 8am, so he went down to breakfast on his own.  I used the time to catch up with my emails and had a chat with Nikki through Face Book.  Me and the children then followed later but ended up having to rush as Dan wanted to be at Kids Club by 9.30am.  He had enjoyed the day before so much that he wanted to go again with Naomi and make things out of coconut leaves! 

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.  This time we walked further down the beach and out of the resort so that the current could take us back.  The wetsuits meant that the children were not as cold so they got to see lots of fish.  We were so pleased for Dan as he had missed so much last time.  Just like Lucy he squealed down his snorkel when he saw things.  Jeff found the most beautiful shell - just wish we had had our camera with us to take a photo of it.  It was so shiny and covered in spots and was the size of Lucy's hand.  (I must look up the name of this at a later date....)

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.
