It has been a quiet day with the book and chatting with Mulder and Scully. The day was perfect. 30C and cloudless for much of the time. Even those few clouds that did venture out, stayed well clear of our beach.

At lunchtime we repaired to the beach bar and while there we managed to catch a video call with Ellie and Urban-cub. It was lovely to see them, even if Ellie does get completely tongue-tied when we do these calls.

During the afternoon the Silver Vixen and Gorse Fox spent some time swimming, relaxing in the over-water hammocks, and floating in the tethered rings. It was hoot as we tried to climb onto and off of these rings with some degree of decorum or elegance. We failed miserably!

Back on the beach, the Gorse Fox and Mulder decided that it would be fun to go sailing. David, the instructor, loaded us onto one of the Hobie-cats and we set off. Out of the sheltered bay, out past the reef and into the open water. There was a stiff breeze and the cat fairly flew across the waves. We weren't out for too long but certainly covered quite some distance. We were soaked to the skin by the time we got back. It was incredibly exhilarating, but the Gorse Fox did manage to consume several gallons of sea water. He suspects that a glass of wine may help clear the taste.

Plans for tonight are a little fluid. We were hoping to go across to Kelly's Dock, but they are fully booked. The butlers are working on it, so we'll see what they manage to arrange.
