on to a little seafood restaurant that is famous for its fabulous traditional food. We started with fresh cheese, rustic bread instead of the white pan served in
We got home in time for Montana, Barto and Patricia to come and pick us up. These are such very very special people in our lives, more family then anything else. First they drove us to their farm. It is just 20 minutes away from their house in town, so they can keep chickens and grow a lovely little vegetable garden, and have a home away from home. They are working on finishing the house they have built there. They have built a smaller building with a kitchen in it that is currently used as a hideaway when they sneak away for the weekend, and a storage shed for their kubota tractor. It is a lovely place and they have over 150 olive trees that are producing olives they pick for oil, as well as fig and orange trees. They have a well on their house property and there is an old well with a donkey pole that they will eventually fix to irrigate the olive grove.
After our tour, then we drove into town and had dinner at the house there. Isabelle and Roman came over and we had a wonderful time. Barto cooked salt water coquinas in olive oil, garlic and parsley, then he cooked giant shrimp on an electric grill outside. He laid a metal sheet on top and covered it with rock salt and then cooked the marinated shrimp. Finally Swordfish steaks. There was also two tortillas, one traditional potato, the other mushroom. For dessert there was a choice between flan and strawberry cheese cake. We got home before 2:00 am after a most wonderful time with such dear wonderful beloveds. It has been wonderful seeing so many friends this trip, but today was particularly sweet to get to have breakfast with Paco y Teresa and then the rest of the day spent with some of our most favorite people in the whole world. The whole trip was worth this day, and we still have one more day with our friends. I am so tired, but this is so worth it.
So worth it
