Today there was a great gathering of locals at the Norfolk Island Airport. They were there to farewell a large contingent of Norfolkers who were setting off for Samoa for the South Pacific Games. Among them was Peter, who is off to play squash, the culmination of many months of training.

Today is Peter's birthday. Because he is crossing the dateline, when he wakes up tomorrow, it will still be his birthday, so he will have two days of celebrations!

There are teams from Norfolk Island in Squash, Tennis, Golf, Bowls, Netball and Clay Target shooting. One of the youngest competitors is Phoebe Evans, who, at 15, is representing Norfolk in Bowls!!

They are all going to have a great time competing and enjoying meeting up with their Pacific neighbours in a lovely tropical environment.

Peter caught unawares actually smiling for the camera! (Pity about the black spot on his nose - that is some dust in my camera!)

Meanwhile, arriving on the same plane were Kim, Charles and William. Kim and William have been enjoying family time with Kim's parents in Wellington for 6 weeks, so you can imagine how excited we were to see our grandson again.

Charles has spent a few days in Wellington with kim and William before they all came home today.
