Charles even found a Mother Hubbard dress that was made for Kim by friends when they were in Vanuatu.
We put citronella flares and lanterns all about in case the mozzies gatecrashed the party.
There were welcoming jelly shots as people arrived.And we killed the fatted pig - two in fact, generously provided by Peter from Simon's Water, and competently carved by Jamie.
There were loads of other dishes too...
John's Tahitian fish was popular - every last morsel was eaten! But apart from that, there was enough food left over for every single guest to take home a big doggy bag. But everyone was so full, they could not be persuaded to do that!
The guys always like to congregate around the fish fry, just as they do for a barbecue.
It really was a feast - and that was before we started on the sweets and the cake!
Then it was time to bring on the dancing girls!
Darls was a great DJ,.
The kids all took to the "dance floor" and had an amazing time.
Miriam enjoyed catching up with rellies and friends...
Tina took lots of photos for us, and I am looking forward to seeing hers!
The next day it was just a lovely memory - and leftovers!!!
