It's Salty Dog's fiftieth birthday and she's hired this place. Friends will arrive over the next couple of days but we had it to ourselves yesterday. Although we were swathed in blankets I think that what we did yesterday afternoon counts as sunbathing. I alternated between reading, sleeping and admiring the view. We then went for a stroll and a glass of vino tinto in the nearest whitewashed village to here.
Today we're planning a wintery walk at a higher elevation. There's snow in them there distant hills. I'm hoping that being able away from home away from the responsibilities associated with normal life will supercharge the batteries. It may be just what the doctor ordered!
