Millions of stars, a stunning sunrise and a clear blue sky ushered us through the day today. The sun is hot, the breeze cool and the occasional wave soaking has become something to look forward to once again. To top all of that off, in the last few minutes of the 6am-12pm watch the sudden calls of ‘Fish on the line!’ were met with a stampede of feet and hoots of laughter as dinner was reeled in. The sound of such delight coming from grown adults is certainly music to the ears.
