Pirates Ahoy!!

Pirates, chocolate cake, people (ok person) on stilts, giant bubbles…yesterday was a good day.

My good friend Milly was entertaining at a children’s birthday party that had a pirate theme and she invited me along to take a few fun photos.  Despite feeling distinctly unwell the irrepressible Emma was also there tottering around on her stilts.  (I did see her hug a tree-top at one point to take a breather, looking wan and fragile but as they say “the show must go on” and it did.  She was a trooper).

Then to make the day even better, after the birthday party (full of chocolate cake, chocolate coated strawberries and beer) I went up Coronet Peak with some friends and we rode the Enduro track on our mountain bikes.  So all in all yesterday was a great day.

Here are some photos from the birthday party I thought you might get a giggle out of…
