Dolce far niente

When you're in the middle of a long, hot summer, it doesn't inspire you to do a lot! Up to last Friday it was even too hot to just move - temperatures around 34° Celsius at the coast, Somnever experienced it!

So now I understand why the Spanish (and any other people living in the south of Europe) like to have a siesta and are considered to be 'lazy'. We're just the same right now!

We do our errands, stroll a bit along the promenade when it's not too hot, but mostly just relax on our terrace under the big parasol. Something cool to drink near at hand, e-reader in the neighborhood. It doesn't have to be more. My sister is relaxing now, work seems to be forgotten.

And yesterday evening we went dining in a fine restaurant. Pure bliss! We had tapa's of oysters, king crab and Thai mussels as a starter, and then ate lobster. For dessert a rice pudding and coffee afterwards. And of course a good bottle of wine to accompany the food. Btw, the restaurant is named La Guera. I can recommend it!
