Our timing was perfect. Tony pulled into a parking spot, I ran in to our meeting point at the airport and there they were, two weary travellers with big smiles on their faces. We are glad to see them. We, Tony and I, were nervous that The Rattler wouldn't hold all of us and luggage, but piece of cake, the Provan's have packed light! Off we went to Penedo with a stop to pick up fresh out of the oven, Brioche. Yummy!
We just had that last climb up the winding hill before we could put on the kettle for tea
The day passed quickly. Catching up on: their flight - was pleasant but they were delayed one hour due to a fuel leak, a bit disconcerting when everyone had to deplane; all things at home - everyone is great, snow still falling though in Bracebridge; what we had been doing here and what with showing them around the villa and absorbing the surroundings and the sun, the day flew by. With jet lag looming we went from tea to a nap, lunch and Sangria on the deck overlooking the villages and surf below, a nap by the pool and then sitting and watching Tony BBQ our dinner with Mikes assistance. Remember those chickens? They were delicious along with roasted veggies, fresh bread and melt in your mouth velvety new baby potatoes.
To get to dinner though, Tony had to do three cycles of charcoal, first grilling all of the veggies, then each chicken. He loved it. As you can see it is not a large area. He had spent a lot of time yesterday getting things set up and his hard work paid off. We all are wearing "Eau de Charcoal", highly recommended.
It is getting late in the evening, Euchre was won by the boys, by a point or two, a glass of Port, strawberries and chocolate - time for bed. Tomorrow will come soon.
What? It is only 9:30!
