Sorry. I've been meaning to let you all know how James got on.
Well as everyone said he had an incredibly, wonderful time. They stayed in the Marlborough Sounds for 7 days. He said it was awesome. They had beautiful, calm weather. They did so much - tramping, swimming, sailing from bay to bay, went to an awesome waterfall, games, sailed little boats, heaps of stuff. Then on Day 7 there was a window where the wind and swell dropped a bit and they headed down to Kaikoura - very rough, lots of people sick. They saw heaps of dolphins and whales up really close. Stayed there a night then down to Lyttleton where they stayed 2 nights before coming home. Yes he was absolutely fine and he had a fantastic time. Made heaps of friends. He had heaps to tell us. He was totally buzzing when he came home. Good to have him home and know he had a great time.

I'm working on another Mulberry layout - has anyone taken the challenge yet? I might try this challenge on BB. I like to doodle, LOL and I like paint - sounds like fun to me.
Or this challenge on Effers.
HEY how freaky is that - I just realised both challenges were set by Emily Falconbridge.
Plesae post here if you do any of the challenges.

The trip sounds fine. It's supposed to be a real adventure. Lucky to see dolphins & whales up close. That's my dream.
I've checked my stash & no mulberry! Strange with a daughter in the house - it was either pink or purple & nothing in between!!

thanks for the challenge links - will see how I get on!

I remember a 'gap' in the weather when I went on the Spirit - one of our team ended up being flown to hospital from puking so much!
