Time just flies here and it is with embarrassment that I see there has been no entry to this blog since the beginning of December for goodness sake!
What have we been doing?
Well just getting on with it is the short answer!
The restaurant has been running to high capacity and to great reviews on Tripadvisor.
It is with sadness and regret that the time is creeping towards 2onmain closing its doors.
The buildings we are occupying are going to be made into a 30 bedroom hotel. Work is likely to start in June so we are probably going to be our of here sometime in May.
That's the bad news, the good news is that we will be moving to a great new location (yet to be confirmed) which will be a permanent home to all Hospitality Up-skilling on St Helena. Some of my time has been taken up with some of the planning on this project and looking at how to maximise on the space we will have in our new premises. All exciting stuff and more on that in future blogs.
Christmas came and went (my third on St Helena) . We enjoyed super weather so I took a few trips round the island with my camera. Down on the waterfront the Saints took to the water in a variety of craft as depicted in the photo below.
One of the annual phenomena that is eagerly awaited is the arrival of the Whale Sharks. These enormous creatures congregate in Jamestown bay from the beginning of January until the end of February. Boat trips are offered in a variety of craft. I took advantage of two trips, one we saw nothing but dolphins (not complaining) and the other we saw just one and the photo I took really doesn't do justice to these giants of the sea.
