This morning we set the alarm for 6.30am so that we could go down and feed the dolphins at Barnacles. It was a little chilly this morning with the temperature at 3 degrees, but the wind was a pretty gusty so it seemed cooler. My family must love me that they got out of their warm beds at that time to go and paddle in the water.
We did think that there would not be so many people there due to it being a week day, but we were wrong.
We only saw one dolphin this morning, his name is Mystique. He was the alpha of the pod and is about 28 years old. He was very gentle and a little battered as you would expect from an animal of his age. Andrew, Rob and I all took a turn at giving him a little treat.
It did not seem too hard, and hopefully Robbie will remember how to put it up next time we need it. They were thankful for Andrew's height to help when we had to move one of the posts. I had the best job, sitting inside and watching until they were finished.
It was lovely this morning to get a message from the Monday Ladies. I must admit that I knew it was a weekday, but forgot it was Monday. How quickly I have moved into the world of no calendar. The cards they are making today look wonderful. I hope you all had a good time.
Lunch was at the Tin Can Bay Country Club, and was delicious. Fabulous food, fantastic service, and lovely company.
After that we said farewell to Andrew who was returning to Toowoomba to work on Ruddigore which is showing this coming Thursday.
By then I needed my nap. Robbie want to try his hand at a spot of fishing, and we finished the day with dinner at the cabin with Nana and Gramps.
My feet faced east tonight while we had a glass of bubbles before dinner.
Another super busy day had by all :-).
Catch you soon.
