I've been on holiday.
Well, not really, but it feels like I have.
We've been having glorious weather, mid 20s C and just simply sunny each day.
Which is good because we have family visiting for the weekend. Our visitors are staying at the hotel down the road from us, to allow The Photographer plenty resting periods throughout their stay and it's worked out brilliantly, as we decided we would act as if we were on holiday too.
On their beach-side balcony. Isn't TP looking well!
We've gone from snow in March and cold temps throughout most of April, to a week of summer weather and temps in the 20s. Straight from winter to summer. No spring in between, or though it seems.
It's happened with such lightening speed that I was taken unawares and when it got to going out for a meal on Friday, I looked at my wardrobe and thought "What the heck did I wear last summer?"!!
So I went for a tried and tested "nautical" look. Striped linen blend top from Magasin in Copenhagen (bought 3 years ago), white jeans from M&S (bought in the January sale £8, bargain!).
I topped it off with an East jacket as I knew it would be getting chilly when we ate al fresco on the terrace later, with the sun started to go down over the yardarm. My Windsmoor cardi also tagged along, and was a handy drape for one of our visitors later in the evening
OK I'd better sneak in a sea-selfie, gotta be done.
The terrace restaurant served up some delicious meals, not all mine I hastened to add.
And for me, the humble crab sandwich. My first of the season, methinks
My patient began to flag so we didn't stay to watch the sun sink over the horizon, but our visitors viewed it from their balcony after we left.
A beautiful ending to lovely day.
And the eating fest continued into Saturday. A birthday lunch for one of TP's daughters at La Reunion.
Yes, another day, another beach restaurant.
I did my two starter trick. I chose a gorgeous three cheese soufflé to start the meal. If you're in Guernsey and fancy eating the alltime best cheese soufflé then book a table at La Reunion now!!!
A prawn starter for mains.
Some of the other diners' dishes.
Yummy petits fours ... and they're complementary, so double yummy!
And this strawberry cheesecake was declared The Best Cheesecake EVER by all who tasted it!
I leave you with some of the photographic memories of Friday and Saturday, courtesy of TP's other daughter.
Somebody braved the cold spring water!
And so on to Sunday. We're going to see a film today. Now I wonder which film that could be ...
A la perchoine.
