We made it onto the island, parked up and walked round to the Manor House where everyone was outside having their hangover breakfasts. We found a housemate called Kam (leader/orga
It was nearing evening time so we returned back to base to get glammed up for the dinner banquet which was located at the ‘bomb factory’. When we arrived we were greeted with a welcome punch as we waited for the latecomers to turn up. We were then directed to an outdoor seating area which had been laid out and it was just so pretty. It looked as though it was part of a wedding!
The food then began to be brought out and I was more than ready for 5 courses of heaven. The courses included; Mussels, Lobster and pea soup (INSANE – I keep dreaming about it), various barbecued meats and an Eton Mess (Sadly, I didn’t manage to get any photos of the food as my phone had a hissy fit just as we were arriving). They were also very accommodating to our group’s dietary requirements which was great and allowed us to feel that we were in safe hands and could just enjoy the evening without having to worry. It was such a lovely evening and an awesome experience, I want it to happen all over again.
The party then continued into the not-so-early hours of Sunday morning before everyone blurrily retired to their beds.
Sunday morning wasn’t great. An extremely sore head and covered in (approximately 37) bites all over my body! We staggered to breakfast – a glorious salmon and Tzatziki bap, it was just what I needed and so so good that words can’t even suffice. I ate overlooking the beach and it felt as though I was in a movie.It was time to leave. We had to make sure to be completely over the causeway by around 12:30 or we’d be stuck til evening, not that i’d have really minded.
I really would urge anyone who is given the chance to attend an event on Osea Island to do it! It’s so refreshing to be out of London and in such a remote place. It’s a chance create some unforgettable memories and to some new great people that you wouldn’t necessarily cross paths with in daily life. I’d love to spend more time on Osea Island in the future, I absolutely loved it. Well done Little Yellow Weekender, it was a great success… I just wish I’d remembered to bring insect repellent.For more information regarding Osea Island Click HERE
