Tuesday night the club had a “grill night”. Now I know that approx 350 people is a lot to cook for but this is what they served!
If you think it looks bad … You have no idea how bad it tasted. Add the fact that I had a huge reaction to either the red wine or the trees we were sitting under … Streaming eyes, and it was a bit of a disaster for me. Scotty and I left, quickly followed by John and Lars. Scotty and Lars went and had a pizza and John and I got a gelati.
Then last night was the gala night in a beautiful old building … Sit down dinner and it was fabulous. We had a bit of a dilemma because I hadn’t bought a ticket, then we found out that there were none left for sale. I just hadn’t got around to doing it. We knew that there were some sailors that weren’t attending so decided it was worthwhile me turning up. We had a few strategies in place to get me in, but as we arrived the girls at the front desk were occupied, so the three of us just very quickly scaled the stairs and we were in … Easy peasy! A well worn mcLean trick. As it turned out and as we had guessed there were actually spare seats.
John, Lars and roger out on the balcony … Lars thought that maybe at the end of the night we should jump over and swim home! Instead we walked and he took us to this church that from the outside looked like a strip joint … But this is what was inside … Amazing!
