Given I’ve been coming here for seven winters now, and with Marc and I spending six months here each of the last two years, there is an inevitability of routine and habit. We can’t say that we really notice it ourselves but it’s always evident when other people come to spend time with us. Personally I like that the routine changes a bit and a new series of habits get developed. I’ve always been an eternal optimist, I love change and transition and having somebody new in the mix highlights those things.
That said, the tide has shifted a little with the arrival of James. He is so grateful and happy to be here and to have a break from the pace his own life has become, work and most importantly, Canadian winter.
We’ve determined that we need to have a few low-key days until his body clock adjusts to this new environment. Today he slept in and when he finally wandered out to the main part of the house, his smile nearly blinded us!! He is one contented person.
We decided to head into Fuzeta, wander a little, have lunch, wander a little more and then head back home. Only so much excitement each day!!!
Fuzeta was very quiet today. We parked and headed for lunch then we took a walk along the beach and around the harbour. Very few people out and about.
Lunch was corvina…..a delicious succulent white fish.
All three of us were feeling a bit tired today so, after wanderings and food we decided to stop at the grocery store, pick up a few things to go in Marc’s wonderful turkey soup, then headed home down as many backroads as we could find. The colours are in abundance in both homes and plants…..
Tomorrow James will be a bit closer to local time, my head cold will have hopefully abated and Marc will be feeling back to his old self. What a motley crew we are this evening!!!
