A morning of painful jogging and a bunch of proper sausages was my pleasure. The latter, especially. There are so few butchers now which sell sausages that aren't close to the same size as one another. It's something we will miss when the EU bans them. After my chores were completed I headed off to a creek where the local water authority has left a pipe leaking everywhere creating a beautiful waterfall. It provided me with an ideal opportunity to try out various functions on my camera. The main one was the shutter speed. From what I have read, water is notoriously difficult to photograph due to its speed (if flowing) and the danger of over-exposure.
Some of the 160 odd photos I took were pretty rubbish but I'd say half actually made it to the laptop. I was extremely pleased with some of them, though a little disappointed how out of focus the macro pictures were. This was largely due to the howling gale.
On the way back the weather took a turn for the worst, but due to the fact I was in a wood land I stayed relatively dry. Even walking along the road I was sheltered. Then as soon as I entered the farm boundary I got soaked in 30 seconds flat. I'm destined to die of TB now.
In the evening Tony was our host once more. For starters I had roasted red pepper with anchovies and tomato. This was deliciously light and the crusty Italian bread gratefully soaked up the juices. For my main course I'd selected a huge piece of place with mussels. Once again it was accompanied with the deep fried cauliflowers and fantastically fresh vegetables. The white wine was a Verdicchio (sounds like a salad leaf, and would be nice to accompany such) and the red was a "Friuli". A strong thick red which deserved savouring, perhaps without a delicious meal attached!
