La Clementine sits high on the cliff, way over there in the middle of the cliff, behind the trees.
Driving Les Cotes road takes skill. It is seems longer than 2:14 minutes! No sound track to protect innocent ears! It was a rocky ride as you can see from the iPad video (even after Youtube stablized it). This was one of the few times I got to ride up front. Most of the three weeks I was the filling of a twin sandwich.
A week ago Sunday we hosted a friend from Indonesia who was back for a visit. Enjoyable conversation all around as our friend Jim Kutz is the
curriculum developer of the model curriculum PK - 12th grade for a model
school in Dhaka, Bangladesh. He is also involved with the Geology World Park to be located in Bogor, Indonesia.
I still have my living and dining rooms switched around, good for a table of eleven.
Simple red tulips on the table.
Stock and carnations in the other room.
Food waiting to be put out.
Lemonade and wine in the kitchen.
Roasted asparagus with balsamic vinegar, mixed cherry tomatoes on the side.
My sister's excellent pound cake and fresh strawberries for dessert. A really easy party to prepare since poached chicken breasts take less than 30 minutes to cook. I used red grapes, dried cranberries, celery and walnuts with a minimal amount of mayo/yogurt/mustard/curry dressing.
