Domes on the Pier

  



I mentioned I am constantly planning, driven by FOMO I move from one event to the next, hatching plans. One thing I miss in Winter is those lazy afternoons, enjoying sunset over the harbour. So when I saw the igloos at Pier One, I knew I had to book one and celebrate.






We arrived at 5 for sunset, alas the clouds had moved in however only to destroy the view. The weather had been a summery 27 degrees, so the igloo was more of a sauna than a cosy cocoon. However, it only meant we didn't need the fire or the fur blankets. The champagne and cocktails were chilled and more importantly, the laughs were abundant.







If you swing by and they're not booked, you're able to take advantage of the igloos. However, to be certain, gather a posse and book one for a few hours. You have until mid August before they disappear. "Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face." Victor Hugo













(When we arrived there were hundreds of convicts running around as part of a scavenger hunt. It was hilarious!)














When you're drinking champagne with friends on the harbour, how can you not love life?

  2. Oh wow, that looks gorgeous. I'm a fan of fairy lights and all kinds of pretty lights, so the dome effect is stunning. We've got a couple of piers here that could benefit from some more beautiful lighting. Although once a year a dinner is hosted on one with lanterns etc and it's beautiful. #teamlovinlife

  6. I love those igloos! It sure would beat those outdoor heaters they use here in Europe.

  10. Great for cold winter days! Do they take them away in summer time? Or otherwise they can offer saunas at the harbour, haha! #TheWeeklyPostcard
