OMG, I hardly know where to start on my day 2 run down. We are having THE best time!! If you ever wondered if working hard for the trip was worth it, let me tell you it definitely is!
The day started with a leisurely Early Grey on the balcony, followed by breaky with some of the girls. Here's Sue doing it very hard as you can see.
Next we boarded a ferry (in PERFECT weather) for a short sail down the river to Ricky's Restaurant. The ferry had a top deck so lots of oohing and ahhing and waving to the people on the balconies on the shore.
Here's Kim Gavarra and her husband (at the back) with Yvonne and Martin.
When we got to the restaurant we were divided into teams (by ribbon tied on cutlery!) and assigned a chef who walked us through making our course of the meal. The food was UNBELIEVABLE. I don't think I have ever had such an exquisite meal and that was even without the amazing ambiance. I'll post later about what we ate as I need to be somewhere soon, so just wanted to get some pics up of us doing the cooking.
Like I said - MUCH more to come about the restaurant - it was so awesome. We were ferried back to the hotel (and I mean right on their own jetty!) where we had a leisurely afternoon. I spent most of it chatting in the hospitality room again - today I won a roll of Baja ribbon, and had some great conversation to boot! The girls also put out some delicious US candy for us to try. They think of everything I tell you.
The night was so much fun! We all descended on the surf club where they had a Karaoke night! It was so much fun. I was up there numerous times doing all sorts of hits, and at one stage we even had Keesh out of her wheelchair and bopping along singing on one foot. She is such a fun girl that one! Aaron showed his head banging side and sung a few hits and we even had Dave Baugh up there singing solo. The boys got together for a Midnight Oil song too:
Here's Keesh doing some seat dancing:

SUCH a fun day. I'm off to make and takes and swapping now so be back soon!
