and another day on the water
But before we dive in to our latest weekend adventures, we need to introduce you to the third JIT who has joined us from Zimbabwe. Her name is Patience and she was supposed to be with us from the start but due to work permit issues she landed up coming 2 months later.
This past week was quite an exciting one as we had Graeme come and visit from South Africa. Graeme is the one who organises the whole JIT programme. He then gets the awesome job of going around to the JIT locations and checking how things are running. On his first night here we went out for dinner at Cruzin and then could not resist a stop in at Bomba to introduce him to Bomba punch.
The next night he came over to see our place and Ash made delicious chicken pie. Thursday night we had dinner with the three of us JIT girls, Graeme, Sasha (HR at Deloitte) and Mark (our managing partner). We went to Bananakeet which is this restaurant with the most awesome view.
It is a great place for sunset cocktails so of course we got there early to try some out. The view is really spectacular and they give you a free sunset shot!
Whats not to love about a place like that??
Friday was Tash's birthday and although we are far from home it was still a really special day (especially thanks to Ash and her sneaky ways).
We all went to sky bar (a sushi place near our house, also with gorgeous views). Unfortunately we arrived too late to see the views (we were the last people to arrive, oops!!). Apart from a really annoying manager at Sky bar dinner was really great and it was nice to have everyone all together.
After Sky we headed off to the Grand and thanks to Guyp and the french canadians, far too much Jager was consumed! But besides that it was loads of fun!
The next day we took a while to get going but ended up on James' boat sometime round 1.
He took us to these caves which you can swim through, they are so beautiful to snorkel in, the light in the caves is so different from outside - all the rocks are different colours and there are lots of fish hidden in the corners.
We also saw a turtle on our way to the caves - Murphey's law really - we go all the way to St Thomas the weekend before to see turtles and Graeme turns up for one snorkel and he sees one!
After the caves we went to try wakeboard. After James had shown us how it was done Graeme tried. He got up on his first time but unfortunately something was wrong with the boat so Tashley didn't get to try (not that we minded, wakeboarding does not look easy). So we went to Peter island and chilled on the beach untill it was time to go home.
Sunday was not very eventful as we spent most of it on the couch! Was nice to have a relaxing day for a change!
