Warning...this post is a biggie, so you might want to grab a cuppa!
I'm back home now (great to be back, but I miss everyone too!), and I thought you all might like to hear all about the last couple of days of the trip. I hope you've enjoyed reading the updates. I know I used to when I wasn't on the trip myself.
On Friday night we wandered down the road and spent our dinner voucher on some cocktails at Ricky's Restaurant. Here we are sipping on some yummy concoctions. Jayne, Linda, Teresa, me, Dave, Georgina, Gareth and Tanya:
In our rooms waiting for us was a lovely wooden salad bowl filled with kitchen-y stuff (I think the dishwashing liquid is a present for our hubbies LOL)
We had our last spin of the wheel. Here I am, with Janiel and Angie (note the jars of 'candy'!). It was bonus day on the wheel, and I won paper snips, build-a-brad and Fresh Cut notes. Woo Hoo!
Here's our jet skiing party Sean and Emma, Neil and Steph, me and Dave, Nicki and Dave, Vicki and Steve, Jayne and Gareth, Ngaire and Jane:
We had a blast. We were out for 1 1/2 hours and that was plenty for me! We went out in pairs and it was really choppy and windy. By the end I had a rash on my chin from holding on so tightly to Dave that my chin was rubbing on his life jacket, and I ripped the belt loops on the front of his jacket with the death grip I had on him!! I managed to stay on though (probably because I wouldn't let him go very fast...speed demon I am not!) Steph has photographic evidence on her camera that I actually did it.
Don't ask me the name of the car we were in, but it was 1950's-looking! Here is me, Ngaire and Jane in the back seat, feeling pretty special!
We were driven to The Plantation, a gorgeous Function venue. It was all done up beautifully (SU! Really know how to make us feel special!)
At each of our place settings was a soft white pashmina scarf Here's our table - Kerri, Yvonne, me and Makeesha
And this is the gorgeous view that we got to gaze at...aren't those flowers divine?? (OK the guys are pretty cute too!) This is our jet ski crew looking a bit more glamorous!
...As if we hadn't had enough presents, when we returned to our room, this was on our beds:
A gorgeous (huge!) Chocolate brown bag with leather handles. There was also some milk and cookies in the third red hat box for us to enjoy.
