Summoned to The Governor’s!

We received important post last week from the one island resident who is officially here:

and so is able to send post with that stamped on!

Enclosed was an invite that would allow us to tick off a Falkland Islands bucket list item, a visit to Government House!

And so yesterday evening we got dressed up and attended the event. Marmite scones, local lamb meat balls and smoked seatrout canapes were served along with a selection of drinks. It was a beautiful clear and sunny evening and a very enjoyable occasion meeting other ‘newcomers’ and conversing (mainly) with those we have already made connections with.

We are already looking forward to the opportunity of another invite.

In the beautiful conservatory – the vines in here do grow grapes which are occasionally auctioned off, fetching between £60-80
