Possibly the best vacation known to man.
So, you have all heard me boasting about going to Lord Howe Island for a big family get together. I am pleased to report (and once again, a big thank you to my parents) that is was possibly the best holiday spot ever and we had a GREAT time. Photos really are the best way to show you how damn good it was, so I would direct you to this set on flickr. In summary, we had:
- Matching shirts courtesy of Kris and Janet
- Beautiful views
Unbelievable snorkelling (including off the beach snorkelling, off the boat lagoon snorkelling and cave snorkelling) where we saw hard coral, soft coral, fishes (lion, puffer, parrot, lots of other stuff we could never work out), sharks, rays, turtles, sea hares, sea cucumber etc etc
- A few drinks (and a really interesting story about what happened to the red wine)
- Amazing bird life
- Beach combing, adventuring and bush walking
- Wild gesticulation
- A Comet
So, we had a great time, and now we all need to start a fund to allow us to come again as soon as possible!
