Summer’s Gone

A Day For Hot Chocolate.

Today I had my end of summer hot chocolate. Who drinks that in the summer? The cafe was empty, only us, one waiter, and a huge marmalade tomcat jumping from roof to roof. A few Korean tourists, probably from the cruise ship anchored in the waters of the Caldera, were wandering around. They looked a bit lost and strangely surprised that everything was shut. A golden light shimmered across the bay to the Volcano – what a day.

My lady at the kiosk told me that “Winter is Coming” on Friday. We always talk about the weather and her latest knitting creations. Only 3 more days and then time to wrap up ..

      Misha – hey and hello :) I wish I had a decent camera. The photos were taken with my antique mobile phone – everything turns out speckly & I can’t capture the colours
