Today's theme picked by Chloe, we all raided our bags for pirate attire and the face paints came out for scars, beards and tattoos - we didn't account for the fact that the face paint had a sun block quality, rendering Mark's anchor tattoo with MUM written underneath permanently on his biceps after a particularly sunny day - classic!!! Luckily I had already put sun block on, so my tache and beard came off with no major mishap! Treasure maps, code busting and papier mache treasure chests were the school work for the day and the dolphins came out in force (with their babies - really cute) for a full hour. The wind died down at lunchtime, so we put the engines on but we've just found some wind so spinnekar is flying again. We also decided to put the clocks back by an hour today, randomly. Because we are pirates and we make the rules. Aaaaarrrrrgh. 770nms down.
