Today, mountains of snow, fallen before Christmas, are melting. The sky is grey, the air is almost warm, but the streets are dirty and the remaining snow is granular and sticky ….
Days like this are so predictable here; they usually arrive with ironic precision around Winterlude time, but this year, they are thwarting any possible January opening for our record-long skating rink along the canal.
So this kind of dreary day demands a serious interlude. I present you with beach, ocean, cloudy blue sky (hey? you gonna be picky?), warmth and a marguerita, for good measure. Enjoy.
