Plenty going on this last week with a lovely lunch, a wedding and a very special birthday – my mum Mary will be turning 93 on the day that you read this !
Fortunately we are both feeling a little better – so it has been nice to be out and about a little more. We went to a lovely lunch on Saturday as the guests of Shelby White – you remember we had Thanksgiving dinner with her last November. This time we ate lunch outside in the fresh air down by the pool under an open air pavilion. It was a delicious spread – pasta and parmesan cheese , chicken salad, green salad, bean salad and beautiful crusty bread followed by fresh fruit and chocolate cake …..
Fellow guests were a mix of people we already know and a couple on their first visit to Eleuthera. Betsy and Ed Cohen were only there for a couple of nights – but as we all know – that’s all it takes for Eleuthera to get under your skin and we hope to see them both back here soon. We had a very enjoyable time chatting with Betsy and Ed – a very interesting couple with a mine of good stories from a life well lived I suspect !
After the lunch – a quick change and then off to the wedding in Rock Sound of Rob Atwood – one of our project managers – and his beautiful bride Mary Culmer. She is from Rock Sound originally but has been working in Nassau until recently – great to have her back on island as she is a very talented masseuse and is looking to open a beauty salon here – bring it on !!
And now the birthday of my Mum Mary. 93 on Thursday and fighting fit …… Eating well and sensibly and believing in her own health and fitness means that she is in tip top shape. Staying engaged with the world through her iPad and of course her daily swimming schedule all play a part in keeping her young at heart ……. Happy Birthday Mum – hope you have a lovely day !
