Vernon with friends Brian and Steven
arrived at the center just on 11:00am in
time for the Holy Mass to end and greet
the children before lunch at noon. Our
Dutch friends Johan and Gerard had
arrived earlier in order to attend Mass
at the center with the children. Where
Brian is concerned games are always near
at hand with football commencing almost
immediately on his arrival.
the celebration at lunch was the
Birthday of Gerard with pictures
carefully prepared by our children and a
very nice cake.
lunch over it was off to the beach with
a few spots of rain on the way not
making the beach look too good. However
in the six years I have been at the
center it has only ever rained seriously
on one of the children’s days out so I
was confident that this day would be no
exception to the vast majority.
remain overcast for a while but it was
not too long before the blue sky and sun
broke through the cloud. The children
enjoyed swimming football and even
feeding the local monkeys.
end of all the beach fun there was a
sumptuous feast at the beach restaurant
at the end of which there where songs
and a Thank You to Norman for providing
yet another wonderful day at the beach.
