One of my favourite things about being here for six months each year is the pleasure I get in the slow unfolding of the spring season and all that entails. There are many indicators of when that season starts but for me it officially commences when I find parts of the mountainside peppered with wild paperwhites. Well, it started today!

In any case, while he worked, Pat, Gary, James and I headed off to enjoy a slow hike up São Miguel. A perfect day for it. Overcast, not too hot, and no rain last night, which means a dry trail. It was sublime to be outside enjoying friends, fresh air, flora and fauna.
By the time we arrived home we were starving. Marc, James and I headed off for the square……a delicious new dish with frango.
A perfect day……………and given it’s 17h00 hours……guess what we are all doing?? Pop goes the cork.
