There was a cloudy sunrise with a strong south wind.

We knew that our time at the wonderful Villas San Miguel was coming to an end and so I kept taking pictures of it, to permanently remember how great our time had been.

We made cucumber, cheese, mayo and cilantro on tortas for breakfast. We use fresh tortas from the super market, lime mayo, manchego cheese and lots of salt and pepper on the cucumbers. It is one of my favourite things to eat on the island. When I walked out our second floor door, the wind caught the cilantro and it landed in the swimming pool!

We had a visit with new neighbours from Alberta before they left. They loved Fredy’s pork chop and special shrimp. Then we read for a while around the pool

and then off to my little spot for sea glass. D joined me and we walked home for Tino’s ribs for lunch.

Afterward we researched a place for 2017 and ended up at the beach for a visit with the gang.

We rarely make it to Playa Norte without first stopping in on our dear friend Hortenzia. Sometimes we just wave “hola” but typically we have a play with whichever grandkids she is watching over. She does so and runs her successful business at the same time-all with grace and patience.

Then it was home to Villas San Miguel for a shower and drinks out by the seawall.

We went shopping for supper ingredients and saw a partial sunset by the old Brisa Grill docks. We cooked fish, eggplant and rice at home and then went out to Pita Amore for flan.

Kath’s quote: “…vicinity to the sea is desirable, because it is easier to do nothing by the sea than anywhere else, and because bathing and basking on the shore cannot be considered an employment but only an apotheosis of loafing”. ― E.F. Benso
