Morning rituals. Vacation routines or weekend getaways. Pick a locale and subscribe to its unique subset of pleasures. Café culture in Paris. Morning espresso and brioche in Italy. Dim sum weekends in Hong Kong, waving your hands in a packed restaurant, desperately trying to catch the attention of your server.
These are shared cultural and societal rituals. Rites of passage if you will, the induction into a particular city or country. Other, more universal rituals exist. That cup of coffee or tea we make before starting our work day. Maybe our morning routine is anchored around our favourite media outlet. Whether it be listening to a podcast on our morning commute, or skimming through the day’s newsletters in our inbox, routine builds a narrative of our daily pleasures. It provides a snapshot of the places we live, work, play and call home.
In our eyes, the Carleva Bay Centre is such a unique and special project for us … because it has been our home for more than a decade. We have unique rituals that we have built among our family and friends. And yet, Carleva Bay is so much bigger than us alone, it is about bringing this sense of community and love of the island to everyone that stops by our doors. Below is a photo essay of one of our favorite rituals, taking a two mile-long run along the nearby Yallahs Salt Ponds, and then a quick cool-down dip in the ocean. Come join us!
