Alan hosted family and close friends in a celebration for his 70th Birthday.
Earlier in the afternoon of the big day, storm clouds gathered; the sky grew grey and steely; thunder clapped and lightning struck; and rain bucketed down. Providentially, by late afternoon the skies cleared and the sea calmed in time for us to board the Macleay Cruiser at Double Bay for a sail on the beautiful Sydney Harbour, and a glass of Taittinger, on our way to a mystery designation for the Birthday Dinner.
Docking at the wharf at Balmoral Beach, on what had developed into a beautiful balmy evening, the group walked casually along the waterfront to the wonderful Bather’s Pavilion for an evening of good food, and great entertainment – by none other than the host himself!
“I love the video, but can’t you do something about the red face”, says Alan. “I wasn’t as red as that you know!”
