Another Perfect Day in Paradise
Woke up at 6:00 am to a beautiful pink sky.
Went back to bed (after a little drinkie)
Got up again at 8:30 and had a coffee while admiring the view (see above)
Had breakfast of freshly picked melon, proscuttio and a nectarine.
Went for a 5 mile gentle cycle, and returned to have a glass of a local chardonnay.
Went to a local vineyard for lunch; gazpacho, tasting platter of meats and olives, accompanied by an absolutely fabulous Semillon (Clearview Estate, 2010 Reserve).
On the way home, picked up a basket of nectarines right off the tree. Juice dripping off of my beard. A bit unsanitary, but delicious.
Ah well, time for my nap.
Did I mention the weather?
Cloudless, fluorescent blue sky. Gentle cooling breeze coming in off of the sea.
The hammock calls.
