The visitors today were a fantastic group of people. Most were German, Swiss or Austrian. It never ceases to amaze me that nearly everyone speaks English to some degree. Everyone I spoke to were either fluent or spoke enough to have a reasonable conversation with. It was a pleasure to have them on our islands.
In the house it was pretty manic for just over an hour. We managed to keep up with our teas and coffees pretty well and our cakes appeared to go down well. The last zodiac back to Bremen from George Island was 6:30pm. It is now 8:10 pm and the kitchen is hoovered, the lino washed, all the cups are washed and packed away ready for the next visit. Everything is back as it was and you would never know that today we had 101 visitors.
Tonight we have to pack up ready to move up to Speedwell tomorrow morning. The next big job is lamb marking Speedwell Island next weekend.
The day still isn't finished for Christopher and he is now away to Barren to get some pieces of an old tractor to take up to Speedwell for the tractor there.
