After many cold, wet winter days the warm March sunshine drew us out for a coffee on the waterfront.
Capuccino and a greek coffee
Can you read our future?
I see many more coffees on the waterfront only very soon they'll be iced coffee, not hot. I can see the waiter with his tray.....don't ask where!
Your fortune can be told when the cup is turned upside down and those coffee grounds are left to drip down the sides only I didn't dare do that in public. It's a common practise, at home, and just for a laugh (as far as I'm concerned). One of my daughters has a great imagination, interprets the dark and light shadows and spins a fascinating yarn.
Not the clearest of photos. The tables on the left are all out in the sun and no-one is sitting there, not even us. The coffee drinkers are all inside the protective nylon wearing their heavy jackets. No-one dares sit in that dangerous sunshine and woe betide if they are in a deadly draught. Could be the last time they drink coffee in this cafeteria in this lifetime!
Our first meal out on the balcony, in the March sun for me, in the shade under the umbrella for K. Fish of the day, lettuce from the garden, beetroot and garlic sauce and Vaso's wine
Vaso and the family were busy burning the olive prunings today but her son-in-law sat down for a drink and some beetroot. He is fasting for the full 49 days and is not eating meat or fish (or cheese, eggs or dairy), but a glass of wine is good for the health and the soul.
And a Sunday ouzo in the sun. Clocks go onto summertime next weekend. We will have three months of beautiful warm weather before the scorching heat of summer.
