... out. Food and Fabric Good foodie day had by all. The market was beautiful, so fresh and clean and literally teaming with seafood......... some of which was totally unrecognisable, and some you could only dream about eating. Every size and variety of crab with prices ranging from $50 to $150 per crab !!!!

Exploring the region

The lack of rain has, happily, afforded me plenty of time to explore the mountains by bicycle...and what a treat it's been! There is so much beauty here. I am greatly
