Afternoon Tea at The Sheraton Grand

After a very busy week I was looking for a very chilled Sunday afternoon and what could have been better than a nice swim followed by high tea. AVM took little persuading and to be honest I think she likes her new found fame! I love ‘The Sheraton’s main bar area, The Exchange, it takes […]
