By now I expect Helen and Matt will have landed in Paradise. I hear a helicpoter fly over as I write this. I wonder if that is magic man Marcel who secured the toy for closer viewing of Sarah later? This resort does have a helipad…
Conditions have calmed down a bit. There are no more white caps on the ocean and the palm trees look straight again!
Did anyone actually sleep out there or is it just me? 🙂
More as it happens.
