Trying to take a photo to remember Jen Mearns’ 27th birthday (pictured far right) proved difficult in the windy weather for Sheridan Alexandria, Katie Lawson, Adam Brown, Hannah Fisk, Scott Morris, Millie Long, Alex Donnison, Hayley Wilcox, Ella Potterton. The UK backpackers were lucky to start their weekend – and Jen’s birthday celebrations – early at The Sandbar after the wild weather forced them to leave work for the day.Picture: Louise Barker
