Lockdown Day 80 / Encierro Día 80

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

EVERYTHING I HAVE TO SAY today has been said (and better) by so many others in recent days. Whatever I write simply sounds trite. So, I hope you’ll look at my photos and maybe smile. The photo at top is Sunday’s sunrise from my vantage point on the beach. The photos below are our terrace — always a work in progress. I look forward to speaking with The Kid Brother again tonight and, tomorrow, to sharing at least one photo of today’s café con leche and (second) breakfast at Mesón Salvador. Wishing us all better days ahead.

TODO LO QUE TENGO QUE decir hoy ha sido dicho (y mejor) por muchos otros en los últimos días. Lo que escribo simplemente suena trillado. Entonces, espero que vean mis fotos y tal vez sonrían. La foto de arriba es el amanecer del domingo desde mi punto de vista en la playa. Las fotos a continuación son nuestra terraza, siempre un trabajo en progreso. Espero volver a hablar con El Hermanito esta noche y, mañana, compartir al menos una foto del café con leche y el (segundo) desayuno de hoy en Mesón Salvador. Les deseo a todos mejores días por delante.

    1. Jim,
      So difficult to hold on to hope these days. But then there are parts of the world that have been struggling a lot longer.

    1. Mistress Maddie,
      Sadly, we don’t breakfast outside. We always talk about it, but we have breakfast at our computers (desktops). Maybe this year, we’ll make some changes. It is SO wonderful out there. The colors, the sound of the sea, the light.

    1. Cheapchick,
      I finally got used to the quiet and emptiness (not happily) and now have to share the space and give up the quiet. I’ll gladly adjust… mostly.

  1. I feel the same way whenever I try to write about current events. I think the world needs people who can help us all see a bit of beauty. Not that we should turn away from the ugliness, but we all need balance, right?

    1. Steve,
      Right! No heads in the sand but sometimes we have to look away for a few seconds… if we can.

    1. Larrymuffin,
      I wonder if Zsa Zsa could ever even be bothered with the view… except into a mirror. But thanks. It can certainly be uplifting on these sad days.

    1. Wilma,
      I keep saying we need to thin things out so we can walk around in that 330 square feet of terrace. But then… we’ll, you know how it goes.

    1. Urspo,
      That’s because I don’t take pictures when it’s not clean and neat. But only to make you smile. Thinking of you and your family.

  2. Your red hibiscus plants are magnificent! So many beautiful blooms — and look at the vast number of buds!

    1. Debra,
      The one smothered in blooms here is actually the orange one. The colors are so vivid. You should seem them today. We’ve rearranged more so we see more color before leaving the living room. Yellow and orange are covered this morning.

Share your thoughts and experiences. It's always nice to know I'm not alone.
