My last blog entry was so boat-geeky, that I wanted to quickly publish another entry to show that we are indeed having fun.
Last night was a special night. It wasn’t any kind of an anniversary or anything. We were just in the mood to fancy-up. We went to dinner without the dogs (a rare event) and Roberta put on a dress. I even shaved and put on a shirt with buttons in the front! We picked the nicest restaurant we could find and had an excellent dinner.
Mahon has one of the world’s largest natural harbors. 3 miles long! (I borrowed this picture from Steven Argosy’s blog – www.seabirdlrc.com ).
The shore is lined with restaurants on one side of the street and boats on the other. I like restaurants, and I like boats. Yay!
Roberta and I at dinner. A lovely evening! The restaurant was a little off the beaten path, and we were the only non-locals in the place. It felt good to be in a place that wasn’t touristy and gave Roberta a chance to use her Spanish.
The shore here is lined… with boats backed up to the quai on one side of the street, and a seemingly endless supply of restaurants on the other side of the street. Life don’t get much better than moseying along the quai reading the menus, people-watching and admiring all the boats.
I do have a tendency to whine about the weather that has us pinned down (including the squall that hit us today: http://www.kensblog.com/aspx/vimeoplayer.aspx?vimeo=135866565 ) but… have no doubt… we’re having fun on Sans Souci! And barring some change in the forecast, we’ll be sitting at anchor tomorrow.
