Día Cuarenta Uno

Spicy Prawns - from lunch yesterday.

Seafood Soup - from lunch yesterday.

This morning the sky filled with blue. The sun poured down golden rays. And the weather warmed up enough to take a long walk along the beach. And what a glorious walk it was. It was perhaps the most beautiful walk we've ever taken. I'll provide photographic accompaniment later on.

We called down for room service this morning and found out that there was none - due to the holiday. But, we were told that there was a brunch available. So, we gave it a try. And, I'm glad we did. The selection of LC foods available at the brunch was much broader than what the regular menu provided. I'll also post a picture of my plate later in the day.

I hope you're all having a fantastic New Years!

Thanks, Bayoubabe!

Happy New Year to you and yours!

Most of the food has been delish! This whole LC lifestyle ain't half-bad!:-)

Sounds great! You should eat at the bar more often I think :)

Harry said...

I love good bar food! Most of the restaurants up here seem to have both "bar food" and more refined dishes (for the sit-down section). I like 'em both! :-)

Happy New Year, Erika!

Harry, you have some of the best looking menus out there.

I notice you eat real food in real meals. Good for you.

Keep it up because this way of eating should be delicious.

Thanks, Miriam.

I do strive to eat real (whole) foods. There's plenty of room for improvement but I think I'm making some progress. :)

Happy New Year to you!

Thank you so much, Sadekat! What a kind thing to say. :-)

I'm really trying hard to keep doing right. Having such support helps a lot.

Happy New Year to you and yours!
