Rock, toes, sand, salt

I ‘reduced sail’ today, light duties, I’ve not much energy.

Plage d'Or
Plage d’Or 17.07.21
A lethargic day 30 C (86F) here so started thinking about sand and salt water between my toes.
This in part because of my second vaccination yesterday at the pharmacy on quai Surcoff, Redon.
🏴‍☠️Surcoff 🏴‍☠️being a much celebrated French 🇫🇷 (Brittany) ‘privateer’ during the good old bad days !

Chinese Nosh

My Dad would have called this ‘Chinese Nosh’ so maybe it’s Chinese with Jewish undertones?

Chinese nosh
My ‘artist’s impression’ of Chinese nosh, a Chinese dinner.
Seemed to me like a good idea for a relatively chilly evening outside.
Not brill, not bad, quite quick to make (40 minutes?) edible if washed down well.
Shutters closed, house snugged down, I chose a favourite of mine, a wine that is cool, pale amber, a luminous white with a delicate scent.
This is a wine with aromas of citrus and white flowers.
Subtle and delicious in the mouth, Chevalier de Fauvert, Comté Tolosan.
A good companion for my attempt at Chinese nosh.
