All the Pitcairn style Bounty hats are brought out and worn with pride by young and old.
After lunch some of the littlies thought they would shake it all down on the Jumping Castle.
All sorts of equipment came out - bats, balls, skipping ropes, and these things in the picture, which are evidently less menacing than they look!
At one stage, a ball became wedged right at the top of a very tall palm tree. Someone found some blades, which were attached to Joel's shoes with lengths of string.
Joel's job was to first remove the tin rat-guard so someone could climb above it.
Then Darren attempted to reach the top. He was unsuccessful, but it was a good try!
And it was great entertainment for everyone.
Then Ernie - shown at the left of the picture above - did what is second nature for someone from Fiji, and shinned up the tree quite effortlessly to retrieve the ball - but I missed getting a picture.
Now the kids decided to use the rope for skipping, and even some grown-ups joined in.
Meanwhile, in the dining room, Rob entertained lots of us with his skillful playing on our piano. Rob and Renee are on their third visit from Townsville, and are both fine musicians. Rob has been delighting us by playing our beautiful church organ for us.
It was well after fivethat the last people left. By then it was getting dark and rather cool. We were so appreciative of all the people who helped wash-up and clean-up.
In the evening was our famous "Bounty Ball".
Schoolchildren open the Ball with the singing of traditional Norfolk/Pitcairn songs.
The children have been practising their dancing for weeks. There are competitions in age groups, and then they join the adults in the Barn Dance.
But it had been a long day for William, and he was already asleep!
And what a beautiful day it was!
