it's a wonderful life!

lunch by the sea

in an old beach shack that has been converted into a Thai paradise... green tea, lemon-grass, chilli and garlic..

a world away from Woodford, so it seems, but in reality only 90mins by car. undiscovered. a jewel near the ocean....

we sat dining alfresco with friends..

good wine, food and company.

chatter & laughter, spilling over the wine glasses ~ wishing the day didn't have to come to a close..

then on for coffee at the Grand old Dame ~ Como Hotel. majestic. and afterwards, "let's do it again"..... yes, promising to do it again. and soon

my life is good. And for this, I say thank You

Simple pleasures of good company , food and wine so make the world go round. And the added bonus of the sea. Sounds blissful!

What we focus on expands. The fact that you are focusing on the sacred should bring you more. It is a wonderful life.
