Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links


Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 27.06.16
about ten minutes by car from the city, past the greenhouses filled with tomatoes, past the rice fields and pathways leading to quiet beaches, that is said to be the largest freshwater lagoon in Spain. It was a warm Saturday afternoon and here where we chartered a boat. There were clouds in the hazy sky, a little unusual for these summer days of startlingly clear blue skies, and there was a breeze coming off the glassy green lake, rippling only slightly as our boat glided along. Every so often, a duck would swim past or a fish would hurl itself out of the shallow waters. It was a perfect way to spend the afternoon. The weekend may have had a bit of a bumpy start, but a couple of days off for thinking and dreaming and for boat rides on Spanish lagoons helps to put things in perspective. It’s a new week and we’ll work hard, we’ll lose ourselves in the beauty to be found all around us and share a little of ourselves and our lives in the process. And we’ll know that we are the lucky ones.

Hope your week is off to a perfect start,
