A pleasant dinner last night at Oran Mor, with an ’05 Turley Zinfandel at a surprisingly good price. I had octopus followed by duck! Then, back at the ranch, an 1870 Madeira with a cigar on the terrace.
We’ll lounge on the lawn today, have lunch, then head back for the ferry and the mainland. We only spend a long week here every August, but it’s somehow like we’ve never left. It’s interesting to be able to visit the same places each year while also trying a variety of new destinations.
The photos below are a typical scene as I walked from Cold Noses, where I bought the dogs some treats, over to the restaurant where I had already parked and was meeting Maria.
