This morning we woke quite lat ehaving only got to sleep at around half 5am. When in bed after the game, which we beat Chelsea 2-0, Whitey decided he didnt want to go to sleep and just messed about....'Just close your eyes and think of L.A,' but no so he went for a swim....at 5am!
After waking up we ate yet more Frosties and did some research on the Internet about the week ahead. As we were getting too fed up of the boredom, Whitey and i decided to get in the pool in the pouring rain. We devised some fun little games like throwing the tennis ball against a rock and having to react. Sounds simple but it amused us. We then posed we quite a while for pictures in the waterfall.
When we got dry we decided it was time to pack our things but even then it was nowhere near our 6pm check out time so we all had a sleep. At 6pm we collected our bags at reception where we had planned to book some activities for the coming week to kill some time. Whitey obviously had other ideas as without thinking he booked the taxi for exactly check out time!! We arrived at the airport to discover that check in wasnt even until midnight so we had a 5 hour wait with nothing to do!! This prospect was even more boring than waiting in our hotel room! We sat in the stiffling heat for about half an hour before realiseing that there was an air conditioned cafe upstairs where MIkay and i bought some chips and a great cheeseburger. We chatted and played mind numbing games just to pass the time, which took forever!
Eventually it was time to check in and then we realised that even through security checks there was not much to do so i bought a couple of Jack and cokes to pass the time and help me sleep, which i never can do, on the flight. Fortunately, as hoped, we met 3 of the girls, Caroline, Emma and Kristen from The Cook Islands and so talked to them. What a looooooooooooooooooong night!
