My Mum's birthday

Hello my name is Kim, and this time I will tell you about my Mum's 50th birthday. Personally I loved it all, the breakfast, presents🎁, afternoon walk, pick nick, swim, the beach and all the People. But nothing could over come the evening, so now I will tell you what happened then... After the walk we all had aching bones, and obviously I had a fever 🤒. But I didn't feel too bad, so that was ok👌. Amazingly our friends Michael (Nina's friend) and Erin (my friend) turned up after a month or so of not seeing each other, just... [Lire la suite]

My whale adventure

As I sat at the bow watching Cocolo soaring through the Dominican water outside the 1000m contour, I felt myself moving up and down with the waves. Every time I went up I could feel as I had butterflies in my belly. Gradually I was giving up to see Sperm Whales. After a bit, I started thinking of completely irrelevant things, but I got interrupted by my Dad telling me to come back. As I was doing so, I heard my Mum shout "WHALES!" At first I thought she was just saying it so I would come back to the cockpit. So that's what I... [Lire la suite]
