4th of July

I think there's something weird with our time zone out here. Being so close to the international date line is really messing with our calendar. Last Saturday we celebrated Father's Day and today we celebrated the 4th of July. We did all the traditional things for the fourth such as a BBQ, volleyball, lit sparklers (no real fireworks on the island), and coconut bowling. It was a pretty good time. The volleyball gets interupted all the time since the albatross like to wander across the court about 5 or 6 times a game. Today we saw a shark while we were swimming but it was only about 2 1/2 feet long so were weren't too worried. At least I'm getting enough of a tan now to not get sunburned all the time.

Here's the coconut bowling. We just took some pins from the real bowling lane.

Did you start celebrating the 4th on the 1st just to be sure that you don't miss it? Four day celebration? I suggest that you extend the celebrations until at least the 8th so that you're sure you didn't miss it with date line confusions.
