We found ourselves on board an old fashioned boat under full sail, wooden deck, slightly tarry ropes and the salty sea breeze in our nostrils as we were received a lesson on celestial navigation using a marine sextant. As the sea got calmer we relaxed in a hammock chair and got served a Hemingway Daiquiri, of white rum, fresh grapefruit and lime juice, Maraschino liqueur and syrup. With water the sun appeared from behind the clouds and after freshening up with some dusty rose and lavender perfume, we enjoyed the sunset with a bowl of Bombay mix and a lemon basil ginger Martini.
