Today was my birthday. Shaun had planned an evening celebration at the porthole with our fellow cruising friends. We provided the wine, beer and snacks and our friends provided the party.
I am happy to report we had a great turn out. Nick and Nikki of s/v Celtic Cream arrived and gave me the admiral hat and the festivities began. We had cake (with a not so appealing photo of me blowing out the candles) and party games. They included balloon passing with body parts, drop the lira into a basket by holding them in our nether regions, and bend around a stick to name a few...... It was great fun with loads of laughter.
Spending my birthday amongst these lovely people that I have the pleasure to call my friends made for a lovely evening.
