Birthday Breakfast, Fabulous Food and Thieb Bu Djen

1. We are in Barcelona to help celebrate our daughter-in-law’s birthday and brought with us presents and cards from family in England. We bought some beautiful French tarts from a cake shop yesterday and had those for breakfast after our croissants! We cooked a birthday dinner last night as D and A have to go to Madrid tonight re A’s visa to visit us at Christmas.

2 This week we have eaten Spanish food, D&A’s Moroccan neighbour has brought in beautiful breads and cakes for us each day (see the photos below), last night’s dinner had one English course, (Prawns in a Marie Rose sauce), one French (Confit duck with saute potatoes and peas)and one Italian ( Tiramisu) and this evening we are having a Senegalese dish,Thieb bu djen( chebugen) which I have had a hand in preparing! For D&A’s arrival back tomorrow evening, the lovely neighbour is cooking us a Moroccan couscous dish.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Sea

I love the sea in all its moods, tide in, tide out, early morning and evening. When I lived away from the sea I felt a visceral need to be at the coast and had a poster of John Masefield’s poem, ‘I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky….. ‘ on the wall in my office.

I am away from home at the moment and have only a few sea photos available to share, taken from the same spot, a daytime tide out shot and some evening at sunset, tide right in shots where the sunset appeared to be setting the sea on fire.
