Marina Bar bids farewell with Marmalade Sandwiches

Clients of the Marina Bar in Torreta 2 had been invited to observe the televised protection of Her Majesty the Queen´s remaining journey and luxuriate in a day tea with a glass of Cava to toast Queen Elizabeth the Second.

The house owners, Dave & Rita, had determined to shut the bar on Monday, the day of the funeral, as a mark of respect.  The workers had different concepts. They urged it could be much better to host a day tea for all who wished to come back alongside and watch the occasion collectively on their huge display TV.  I´m certain all those that attended would agree that it was a very good choice.

Some individuals arrived as early as 11am to observe all of the pomp and ceremony happening in London.   David and Lorraine, regulars on the bar, kindly volunteered to embellish the premises with bunting, flags and a beautiful desk show.  We arrived a bit later with our Columbian pals who felt honoured to be invited.

The temper was very sombre.  Rita and the workers, Debbie, Daybreak and Linda had been all wearing black and searching way more severe than regular however, as all the time, very skilled. There was a combination of everlasting residents and vacation makers largely from the UK, but in addition a pair from Denmark.

At simply after 3pm when the coffin was being transferred to the official hearse on its technique to Windsor Fortress, the sound of the bagpipes could possibly be heard exterior on the terrace.  Donnie, the piper, was delighted to attend his native bar to play a number of tunes to mark this historic occasion.  After an emotional rendition of Going House, he completed with the Nationwide Anthem.

Most individuals had, up till then, managed to include their grief however now many had been in tears, together with the piper, himself!

Afternoon Tea was then served.   Scrumptious sandwiches, truffles and even a platinum trifle superbly ready by Steph.  An extra plate was delivered to every desk.  It contained 2 rounds of white bread minimize into 4 triangles with a marmalade submitting and a observe from Paddington Bear saying, “Thanks Ma´am”.

I wish to personally thank Rita (Dave is away within the UK) and particularly the workers who persuaded her to go forward and host the occasion.  It gave all of us who attended the possibility to really feel a part of the historic occasion happening in our homeland regardless that we had been lots of of miles away.
