Another Friday theme chosen by Annika in Virginia, and it’s “favourite places outdoors; balcony, garden, deck etc”… Well, we don’t have a garden in Puerto Rico, hardly even a balcony but the sea and the beach are so close by that you could consider them almost our backyard 😀
I try to go for a walk every morning (before it gets too hot) when I don’t have Spanish lessons. My walks start and finish by the sea, and also half-way at Punta Las Marias where I turn back, I get to look out on the blue / green Atlantic Ocean. It’s such a privilege to be able to live so near the sea for once (I did live on an [much smaller] island once before, the Lido in Venice, and had the Mediterranean Sea around the corner).
In Sweden my favourite outdoor place has to be at our [old] summerhouse. We have a special breakfast place in the garden – we never get up at the same time during summer but you prepare your breakfast (sandwich, porridge, tea) in the kitchen and trot out to the side of the house facing the sea – east of course as it is on the East coast… there is always someone there having breakfast and reading the newspaper. It’s funny, nobody really sits there at any other time of the day, except in the mornings!
I will dearly miss our old summerhouse this summer but I am sure that we will find a perfect breakfast place at the new summerhouse… I can’t actually wait to go back to Sweden – only two months and 1 week left now!!
