Just hanging around

Cool for cats

Landing at Selema was wonderful. A beautiful town frequented by many expats, exercising their dogs on the beach and lunching by the harbour. We stopped for a fish and prawn lunch – mmm meat, and were soon surrounded by the town cats, who fled when the cafe owner produced a water pistol. The cats are fearless and the most well fed feral cats I have ever seen, they are everywhere around the town particularly when when fishing boats come in.

We went off for a couple of days to Espiche to catch up with some friends who were running the local flea market. We made a list of important items:

  • Fishing rod
  • Funnel
  • Bikini
  • Vegetables

We came back with:

  • Measuring jug
  • Socks
  • An elephant throw
  • Vegetables

So all in all a successful mission!

We quickly got into the routine of walking 2/3 time a day along the beach, up / down the steps, until the tide ate up the steps and we were left wave-watching. One of my new favourite pastimes alongside: breathing, smelling, smiling and farting. Who knew vegetables could be so lively and the extra impetus helps get one up the hills.
