Ahhh ... To be beside the sea...

Here I am down at the coast for a few days. There's nothing nicer than just being able to relax to the sound of the waves and the wind whistling high up through the leaves of the eucalyptus trees. From one window I can watch the swaying of the bamboo canes, and see the white frothy tips of the Mediterranean waves a couple of hundred metres away, and through another I see groups of the small green parrots that are indigenous to the southern part of Spain. They are a sight to be seen as the wing their way from branch to branch!

In two days I have finished reading two books. I love to read when we're down here, so much more so than when we're at home as I usually feel there is something else I should be doing. Here I just feel that the time was made for reading and for anything else that takes my fancy!

So I finished two books by Jennifer Worth, on whose books the BBC tv series Call The Midwives are based. And now I'm starting The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin. I read it years ago but thought I'd read it again. The problem with me is once I start a book that I enjoy, I just can't put it down!!! So I get through my books really quickly, which is why I'm so glad to have my Kindle. I am lucky enough to have more than 250 books on it just waiting to be read.....it's an avid bookworms dream!!

Have a lovely Sunday everyone! Now where was I in my book!!!

    1. Thanks Ronny! If it's any consolation, it poured down all day on Friday and we got soaked! And it's still quite cold during the night, I had to get up and put the duvet back on again last night...it was quite chilly! But having beautiful blue skies does lift the spirits.
      I hope it warms up for your there soon!
      Big hugs Sharon xx
