Today has been the first time all trip that we have seen the sun and been able to watch the sunset as it has been so cloudy up til now. We are still on track for tomorrow sunset at Admiralty Bay in Isla Santa Cruz, Galapagos. It's always the same with all my athletic feats (ha ha!) The Great North run, it's the last couple of miles that kill, the Itex round Jersey walk, the last walk across St Aubin's bay that's the killer. And so today has been exhausting. The end is in sight and we just want to be there and we're tired. However, a happy tired. To be fair on Mark, I've done pretty much nothing today except sleep and he's held the fort. It was also he who asked whether it was Father's day today. Oops! He heard us planning a secret and thought it was a father's day surprise, but actually, we were planning his King Neptune costume for our crossing of the equator tomorrow, having completely forgotten all about fathers day. Well, it's all a load of commercial bull isn't it? Father's day, valentines day. In fact all those days are just a chance for the shops to be quids in. Except Mother's Day of course. Now that one is important and shouldn't be neglected!
