drinks, snacks, dessert

Tonight we went down to have drinks and goodies with friends Helen and Linda at their lovely casa by the sea. The house is all open to the elements, except the bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen, dining area and sala are a big room with out walls, windows or doors. We sat watching the evening creep up on us. The light dimmed, the sky got cloudy, then pink. It was a beautiful view out to the ocean. This is one corner of their garden suggesting how they, like the rest of us, spend much of their time.

We nibbled on various tasty things, including some killer artichoke dish for which they have become justly famous. The Patient brought a bowl of Key Lime sorbet he had whipped up. We segued from cocktails and hors d'oeuvres directly into dessert, bypassing dinner altogether.
