Dear James

This vacation is wonderful. The island is beautiful and the weather is hot and sunny every day. I arrived on Saturday morning and went to the beach immediately. I took a long swim and then sunbathed all afternoon, but I only put on sunscreen with protection factor 5 so I got a sunburn! After that I sat under my umbrella and listened to the CD you bought me for my birthday - thanks again! :-)

On Sunday I met some boys from Turkey and we played beach volleyball with some of the local people. They are all very friendly.

Yesterday I went shopping and I bought you a nice present. I hope you like it. See you when I get home.

Love Helen xx
