A More Relaxed Weekend in the BVI and a Beach Picnic

On Friday, we went out to celebrate the big 3-0 with Noku.

Her celebrations started off at one of our favourite joints, the South African bar, the Watering Hole. We enjoyed some refreshing Savannas here but were disappointed when trying to order Sprinboks (peppermint liquor and Baileys for those non-Saffa readers) as the barlady did not know what we were talking about – evidently not completely South Africanised.

After some delicious birthday cake, the party moved to the Dove but the previous weekends and continuous busy activity had caught up to us and we opted for an early night and headed home.

On Saturday we went to Peter Island, another BVI Island. See the map below for ease of reference of all our travels.

A quick ferry ride and no customs was bliss!

Peter Island has a big resort on it which looks ultra fancy. We carried on walking past the couch-type beach loungers to the pleb area of the beach but it was just as beautiful. The day was spent relaxing in the sun, playing Frisbee and enjoying the beautiful sun and gorgeous seas that we have become accustomed to. We also enjoyed some cocktails and lunch at the resort before heading home. Great way to start the weekend.

On Sunday there was another BVi triathlon, this time slightly longer then the 1st one. Tash swam for a Deloitte team consisting of Aurelie (Bike) and George (Run). The swim went really well although it was definately a lot tougher to beat the boys this time as the course was longer and fitness was hampered a bit by the last 3 party weeks! But still they were beaten and not happy about it! We landed up coming 3rd overall and again the event proved that some things are worth getting out of bed before 7am for (barely worth it though!).

After the triathlon we spent a perfect day on the beach - this time the one closest to us, Cane Garden Bay. Guyp and Dave brought their dogs Jager and Blackie along and we spent quite some time trying to coax them into the water - which both of them hate. It ended off with one of the most spectacular sunsets we've experienced since we got here. A big call - but check out this photo as proof!

On Monday night Ash prepared the most amazing picnic as Tash's birthday present (not much to buy on island in the way of presents). We had delicious food and a custom made cake while sitting on the beach watching the sunset and then the stars.

Definitely a great way to spend an evening after work.
