The last Saturday of term signalled party time for the 70 or so children of the Mount Airy Readers group and a good time was had by all!
They sang carols about snow and then almost had the real thing, courtesy of one cruiser who had found artificial snow, activated by water. The kids went crazy, throwing snowballs!
A huge feast was supplied, with rum for the adult volunteers and we played musical chairs until presents were handed out. The children appreciated the small gifts and it was wonderful to see their faces. The gold tinsel we had on our tree in the Cotswolds was now cut into lots of pieces to adorn the girls, again with great enthusiasm.
On Sunday we dinghied round a couple of bays to attend the dinghy concert at Le Phare Bleu. About 40 dinghies turned up, rafted up to the floating barge, stage and bar and enjoyed great music and a brilliant atmosphere.
We have a Christmas market this weekend and the following I am meeting one of my cousins for the first time, as she sails in on a P&O ship, brilliant timing. We have been corresponding for years but have never met. How weird it should be in Grenada!
