august outtakes



Hi!
Just got back from Almería. We stayed in a white stone house in the middle of a lemon grove. We cooked with vegetables from the garden, visited wild beaches, ate paellas in small mom and pop restaurants, and wore straw hats and flip flops. We talked and played cards till all hours of the night with cold gin and tonics. (When life gives you a lemon grove...;)) We also lost about ten kilos from the heat. For once I didn´t come back from vacation with those few extra kilos. ;)
Hope you are having a wonderful summer.
Big hugs!
Jane

Oh spain, I miss it so much. I have never been to Almeria. it's super hot here too so I can imagine what was like there...but heat in spain tastes differently, or at least it did for me.

Not so wonderful - it's too hot. It would be bearable it we didn't have to work. Glad you had a wonderful time.

Those white buildings and pink flowers sing to my soul.

Sounds like a vacation you could write a little book about. Charming. To wake up in a lemon grove??? Do you have any idea how exotic that sounds to a midwest American girl?

Sammi said...
