Sebastian and his boat.

Sebastian and his boat.

Sebastian loves the water and given the opportunity would spend the entire day playing in his new wet wonderland. However, to keep him from frying himself, we have to drag him out of the pool from about 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM!

Sebastian prepares to jump

Sebastian prepares to jump

Sebastian studies the water and Maureen, as he prepares to jump (for the 100th time) into the pool. Tess encourages as she stands behind Sebastian. Sebastian is now learning to dive. His diving angle is a wee bit shallow, so he has done a number of belly flops that he insists do not hurt. "Let's doo dat one more time!" he says.

After dragging the toy laden boat across the pool deck, Sebastian looks for his next fixation. Ah but, Seb, these are not YOUR toys... they are the RESORT's toys... don't forget to share. "Aw-wite..." he'd say, (most of the time, anyway!)

The Feb 2005 Yacht

No holiday with Charles would be complete without building a sailboat. Contest rules: sail straight across the pool. Judges awarded top marks and Seb's Dad walked away with the Kamala Beach Cup!


Pre Flight

Pre Flight

We had several hours to wait before boarding our flight to Hong Kong in the Bangkok airport. Fortunately a very kind airport attendant permitted Sebastian to spend almost two hours playing on these airport golf carts. That was a "hole in 1" as it burned off what little energy he had remaining.


Seb Sleeps

Seb Sleeps

On the plane from Bangkok to Hong Kong, Sebastian was halfway through a piece of chicken when he swallowed and said, "Daaaddeee..." Just a few seconds later, after travelling Mach 5 for the entire week with three adults taking turns as his wingman, Seb collapsed into his seat and pretty much spent the next 36 hours sleeping.
