This week at Macquarie Island: 24 May 2013

On Monday 20 May we celebrated young Craig’s birthday! Out came the balloons and streamers of blue and yellow to represent his favourite Rugby League team, the Parramatta Eels.

We celebrate this young lad and keen sports fanatic - the kind of guy that enters an 82 kilometre trail run from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair limited to 50 runners just for fun, an unstoppable darts fiend who carves up the mess dance floor on late nights and is known to sing, hitting the high notes while he sleeps.

For his birthday he received a toy telephone, a fishing and golf magazine and a handcrafted bottle opener made by Dave.

The night included a few beverages at the bar and a game of darts followed by a delicious variety of pasta dishes and a scrumptious rainbow flavoured Parramatta Eels cake made by our chef Tony and decorated by Patty.

As he blew the candles out on his birthday cake, we saw Craig transform before our very eyes from young lad into a chest beating man of men.

Happy birthday Craig - you’re a little ripper!
