is suddenly a sparkling turquoise. El Capitano is out on the balcony now trying to capture the colour in his camera lens. For a few moments there we could have been in the Maldive Islands looking out across the Indian Ocean. Its a bit colder though - them sitting on the Equator as they do, and it being October here.
Its so wonderful to live right by the sea. Which is now the palest of blues.
I must get back down to the beach and to Maurice the mussel. I have a plotline for him, so I had better get on with it.
We swam this morning - remembering too late we should have rung Jacks and see if she wanted to come!
We will apologise tonight as she is cooking for us. We haven't had much of a routine though, and have tended to swim separately this week.
