On Friday, 5th December team Circul8 held our annual Shark Island Christmas party. A forecast of thunderstorms and torrential rain didn’t put us off . We decided to just go with it. (Good thing we did, because by quite the stroke of luck, we were treated to a bright day with blue skies. Thank you Mother Nature!)
Our festive Friday started with a boat ride through the harbour where there may or may not have been a few “I’m on a boat” references… because, whatever… we WERE on a boat. Once at Shark Island our 12-course feast commenced, courtesy of culinary whizz Jamie. (We think we’re still full!)
What followed was a sunny afternoon filled with some very Instagram-worthy cuisine, a few too many glasses of bubbly and some casual busting of moves to Rihanna (nothing says Christmas party more, right?).
When the sunshine finally started to fade, and the rain clouds closed in we decided that rather than head home, we would prefer to sit tight and watch. Let us say, witnessing a storm gather over Sydney from a small island in the harbour is pretty damn beautiful. And it makes for some awesome photography.
…But the piece de le resistance of the entire afternoon would have to have been it’s final hour. There was some pretty impressive jumping from the Shark Island wharf with the pink shades of a harbour sunset as our backdrop. Poetry!
From all of us at Circul8, we’d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas. Here’s hoping your holiday season is a safe and happy one!
