Fun in the sun

How to entertain teenagers - all you need is a jet ski, a biscuit and a warm sunny tropical afternoon.

My daughter and her two friends have a turn.

While they were churning up the water a number of dolphins joined in the fun. I was lucky to catch one as it surfaced. (The photo has not been doctored even though the dolphin looks like I have darkened it - weird??)

My second daughter and a friend on the biscuit. Notice the volcano erupting in the background just to add to the excitement.

On my Vietnam blog there are some of my favourite photos of the girls, having fun in the waters of Halong Bay.

I can see now why you seem to be always in a good mood... nice weather, fun all day round, lovely family... lucky Jules... but I think you deserve it.

By the way, I'm so sorry that only know I saw your question about the boat of my friend on UNITED. Do you still remember? About who's boat would b bigger? His was 25 metres long.

Jules said...

Gosh Quinto i had forgotten but i do think my friend's is bigger - maybe we need to get them together and measure them??? I'll bring the gin.

Heck, - life is so difficult on desert islands !

Never enough water, no fun, damn friends visiting, dolphins interrupting life's pleasures. Flamin' volcanoes erupting all over the joint.
We could send food parcels and boxes of matches.

I will be there in five minutes and I ain't bringing nothin', 'cept a case of gin and a beach towel.

Wow! Dolphins and an erupting volcano!
Jules, you certainly know how to throw a party!

Life doesn't get much better than this. I am sure Ernest Hemingway would approve.

I also enjoyed a look at the Vietnam blog.

That does look like fun.

Today, take a ride on Santa's Railroad car sleigh.

Donna said...

Geez, wouldn't it be fun to zip in and out of the water like those dolphins? The Girls are in their element!! Hugs to you!

Jilly said...

What a privilege to have those dolphins. What memories for your daughter and her friends. Fabulous photos. Such fun too.

Have just caught up with your blog. The portraits are just wonderful, Jules. Great photos. And the musician the day before. Superb.

Thanks all - we have just got back from Pigeon is diving and snorkeling - another post!!! Life is tough in the tropics!!!

Squirrel said...

I like the colors in the first shot--the railing against the water. In the second shot the girls are just radiating the excitement of moving through the water--

great shots as usual, Jules.

roentarre said...

So much fun watching them play there!

quintarantino said...

Jules, my friend, if you put the gin, I'll bring Oporto wine and some portuguese sweet yummies... oh, by the way, where do we meet?

Jules said...

quinto - somewhere exotic??? What's exotic and half way between Portugal and PNG??? I have always wanted to go to Madagascar would that suit???

Old Wom Tigley said...

Madagascar would suit me too Jules... What a great set of pictures to welcome me back to PNG and you.
I'm feeling much better.. I posted on my blog today a thank you to all my blogging friends.
But for you and others I have called by today to say it personally.. Thank you for your messages of concern. And thank you for being you.

quintarantino said...

Jules said...
