8th June is a very important day of celebration on Norfolk Island. There are all sorts of activities in the morning down at Kingston, but I do not have pictures of those.
However at lunchtime we picnic - in a big way.
Nowadays we have our picnic here at Devon, and more than 55 lovely family and friends came to join us.
And they all brought food - lots of it! It covered 4 large tables and two smaller ones.
It is always great to have Jamie doing the honours in carving the ham, which was delicious. And I must point out the large silver platter standing behind the food. That was won this year by the Christian family for being the best dressed family. Actually, we al;l agreed they probably got it for being the best breeders!Kim and Tina always enjoy catching up!
The kids enjoy the food as much as anyone, with plenty to choose from.
Fun in the sandpit...And the usual ball games on the lawn...
It is always good to have Jenni and Peter along to special occasions, and there will be more opportunities now they are able to live on the island for an extended time.
There was fun on the bikes for young and old.
Everyone agreed that it was a most wonderful day, and the weather was just perfect for us.
