Day 213 – Torre Del Mar (2) …

Our hotel in Ibiza. It’s been a great, albeit very short break, and we just have tomorrow left, and then our flight home on Saturday. Over 30 years since we were last here, and probably not somewhere I would rush back to, but a super holiday anyway.

Day 172 – Would You Like…

… to speak to the man in charge, or the woman that knows what’s happening? Sign in a cafe in Nenagh, but certainly appropriate in our house!

Day 166 – Duck or Grouse…

I love great food, and tonight’s dinner at The Hinds Head was no exception. A small family run pub/restaurant where everything is cooked to order – no pre-prepared catering here! And a bonus – there’s been a Gin Festival on in the village, and the pub has a better than usual range available, with special prices for doubles. What’s not to like!

Day 149 – Another Day…

… another meal out. Well, it would be rude not to meet with friends for lunch when asked. This is one of our current local favorites, and we weren’t disappointed. Trouble is, none of those chores are going to get done at home if we keep going out…

Day 143 – Eating Out Again…

After 2 weeks of fabulous food during our 2 weeks in Cornwall, it was back to normal today. However, with no food in the fridge, lunch out seemed a good idea, so it was off to our favourite local restaurant. Halloumi Fritters and salad was the dish of the day and tasted pretty good.

Day 139 – Oldie But Goodie…

Today was the last day of the 2019 Cape to Cape tour for classic cars, and the 40 cars involved passed right in front of the restaurant where we were eating lunch. Started in 2004, this is a charity fundraising event, with the cars and crews traveling from Cape Trafalgar in Spain to Cape Cornwall. The Triumph TR6 is a favorite of mine – I used to work on the fuel systems when I was an apprentice…

Day 37 – Play It Again Sam…

So tonight was a ‘date night’ spent at one of our local restaurants, where they were celebrating their first year of business with a special menu, and some live music. Thanks to Dan and Verity at The Town House, and to Luke Brown for his great accompaniment.
