Tuesday 17th April
Journal entry brought to you by (a very well fed) Tami.
We woke up this morning at Caves Cove and had yet another delicious meal. Breakfast was cereal, toast, fresh fruit salad, tea, coffee and squash. Sophie and I have honestly not eaten so well since leaving England. After breakfast we were given the opportunity to do some more snorkeling over the reef, Sophie went in. I however had woken up in the night with intensely bad leg cramp and decided it would be wiser not to go in the water, just in case it reappeared and I drowned.
After a couple of hours, when everyone had returned to the boat, I was allowed to start up the boat for our sail home, which required turning a key. Technical. When we were on our way, me Dennis and Kieran passed the time and depression of our imminent separation by having a water fight. We eventually got back to the marina, and it was actually really sad saying goodbye to everyone, particularly the 6 Irish guys, the 3 Scottish guys, and Natalie. We had a couple of group photos, and all arranged to meet up later that night in Magnums for a big night out.
Sophie and I had a couple of hours to relax in, I think I had a nap. Had showers. Then at 7.30pm we met everyone at the table, everyone looked really refreshed and clean compared to on the boat! We were given a jug of sangria or beer for every four people at the table, and everyone proceeded to get very merry for the next two hours or so. Eventually we decided to move onto Beaches which was a couple of doors away. When we got there, we got the most surreal feeling of being at a wedding, the music was of such cheesy and aincient quality. We did, however, have a freaking BLAST, the Irish guys are such a mega bunch of laughs, as are the Scottish, and Soph, Natalie and myself just all went a bit crazy! After the lights had come on to symbolise the end of the night there at Beaches, the Irish lads began to sing their own version of 'We're singing in the rain' which was very loud and raucous, and aÂ lot of fun! We were all singing at the top of our lungs, and people from all around the bar joined in! It also reminded me of the hokeycokey because there were inserted lines such as 'Your right foot's in" etc and we were all jumping around like mad things! The security guards never the less found it very amusing until the point when the line became 'Your top is off' and all these massive beefy Irish lads began to take off their clothes! We then got thrown out, in a very friendly manner. It was great fun! We got a massive cheer as we were 'escorted' from Beaches. The bouncers were in general laughing their heads off, trying to maintain a disapproving exterior so that we would feel bad. Ahhh it was SOOO funny! We then moved on to a nightclub called Mass which was a bit odd, they were running a wet t-shirt competition and it was a bit lame so we only stayed there for about an hour and then I went to get pie with Rich. We all then moved onto Paddy Shennanagins, which of course all the Irish lads loved. Although Sophie and I went a little barmy when Mr. Brightside (The Killers) came on, but aside from that, there was nothing majorly eventful from that bar (that I am permitted to put online anyway, ha ha.)
I then went back to the hostel at about 3ish....Sophie went to Mama Africa's with the Irish lads and it sounds like she, too had an amaaaazing. night. We are having such a blast up the coast! Loving it SO much!! Hope you're all great back home. We miss you loads, although there's plenty to keep us distracted here!
