Our last Summer

We're finally leaving. On Summer holidays that is. We're heading to the south of Spain as every year, but this time it really is our last Summer in Rancho Chico, as the highway will be built this Fall. As a result, we'll be getting lots of visits during our stay, as Günter and Monika will be coming with M's nephew, little M, as well as my Mother, Father, and sister. I regret not to be able to spend these three weeks relaxing alone with M, although I'm also glad to be able to share our oasis before it's completely gone.

Happy Summer! And see you in 3 weeks!

This week

What a week. It's hard to imagine such things happening in this time and age. Human kind hasn't learned anything from its past. The Beirut urban warfare touches me in a special way, as I was very nearby and almost visited it not so long ago.

I need

Too hot.
Too many things to search for.
Too many question marks.
Too little time.
I need a break.
I need a bowl of fresh air.

"Get ready, we're leaving in one hour" M tells me Friday morning. "And pack an overnight bag 'cause we're not coming back till tomorrow. Don't ask any questions, it's a surprise." So began my Friday.

M had been planning everything for a long time, and hadn't said a word about it to me. Well yeah, that's what a surprise is all about you're probably thinking. But the fact is M has been very bad at keeping it to himself in the past. He would usually say something like "Darling, I have a surprise for you. Guess what it is", thus ruining the surprise effect. But he apparently learned his lesson.

My Friday ended at the Robbie Williams concert in Hamburg, surrounded by 80'000 people. Considering Robbie was our very first concert together in Madrid and "Feel" is our special song, it was a wonderful surprise. Although not the only one of the day. But that's another story and another post . . .

Holiday feeling

Every time I go to the sky beach, I get that wonderful holiday feeling. The sandy lounge bar with beds and transats is the perfect place to relax and lay in the sun during the day, especially since nobody is there during the week. But it is also the perfect place to have a fresh beer watching the sunset and cooling down before going back to our sauna under the roof! Hopefully the word of mouth is slow and I can enjoy it until the end of the Summer...

Helping paws

It's taking me much longer than expected. I knew from the start it was an ambitious time-consuming project, but did not realise to what extent. Especially since I've decided to finish my photo albums first. And that is not an easy task, when you have hundreds of pics to select, names and details to remember and write down, and a cat who wants to help constant attention.
