Day off

It was a bank holiday today in Pontedeume. (where Vic and I work) so we enjoyed of a sunny day in autumn and now I am exhausted. We spent all day long in A Coruña and did so many things and so happy about it. 

In the morning we visited the exhibition “Origins: 5 mayor milestones in human evolution”. We arrived a bit late so we had to rush to visit it and we were so impressed that we will return and dedicate more time to visit it. After that we walked to the port to see and old wooden ship called “La Pepa” which is more like a museum to honor the first Spanish constitution. 

We enjoyed our day-off by having some beers and lunch with our friends Sabela & Javi in one of our favorite tapas-bars in A Coruña: La Mantelería. Afterwards we had a coffee in one of the terraces in the Mendez Núñez gardens. Before we knew it, it was seven o´clock. 

We still had time left to pass by the library to buy a tourguide of Barcelona. (We have a weakness for travel guides) for our next “escapade” to Barcelona. And after we needed to return quickly to home because we need to work tomorrow but…it´s almost Friday!

Splendid walks

While this warm autumn allows us to enjoy splendid walks, like the one we made to “Seixo Branco”. An coast area in Oleiros with lots of high cliffs with incredible views to the Atlantic Ocean.  We love to walk hand in hand, roll in the grass, close our eyes, breathe the air of sea and just listen to sound of the waves that impact on the rocks and cliffs. Can´t think of a better plan than this, perfect Sunday morning: the sea, a blue sky and my love…it´s all I want, I can´t ask for more.

Walking in the morning

When I woke up this morning and I saw very early the blue sky from my bed, almost melting with the sea I couldn’t avoid wanting to get out of bed and take a good morning walk. At first we wanted to take a walk to a beach nearby but finally we decided to walk to the port while enjoying the morning son.

Autumn is already here and I am so happy about it. But while we will wait for rainy and cold days we will enjoy the last days of sun and warmth by walking in the morning with the love of my life.

Wine from Souto

Yesterday we celebrated “La Vendimia”, the anual-grape-picking-happening at the vineyards of my uncles to start the season of wine-making. It was Vic´s first participation and therefore very special to us. Since early in the morning my love together with my uncles, my father and my grandfather went to get the grapes from the grape vines to make the wine from Souto.  

It´s a tough job, bad for your back, but bearable if your entertained, talking and enjoying the moment like it´s a party or festive happening more than “just a labour”

And also they knew after the hard work, they all would be well compensated with a large family eating to charge up strengths. Later that day in the afternoon we had to transfer all the grapes to large wooden barrels to press the fruit and make sweet grape-juice, the very beginning of a complex wine-making-process.  We didn’t finish until late in the afternoon but we all very very satisfied about the good work done.  We enjoyed this day very much, full of (old-family) traditions, surrounded by folks from around friends and family. Today is tasting day! Bring on the grape-juice!
