We wanted to make a fun event and a memorable day so we planned to make mortar boards with the graduates, and never mind about the gown! After all, in this heat they'd be too hot to wear anyway! We decided against the traditional black, and keeping to an "island style" theme we delved into my huge box of old Lotty B silks...
With the initial rush over of trying to get people on or off the island, life has settled into a peaceful pace reminiscent of the early days here in the "low season" which used to stretch from May to December.
Just 6 days to go until the big Mustique 50th celebration party. 'A Splash of Gold' is the dress code, and we have yet to finish making our costumes!
Arriving back on-island is always an excitement but I wasn't expecting such a hive of activity after just 2 1/2 weeks away! What industry there is in every direction. This isn't any ordinary build-up to the summer high season, there is good reason for such hustle and bustle, Mustique is celebrating 50 years of the formation of the Mustique Company! - quite a mouthful!
