(Those are Steph's feet, and that's the only photo of her she would let me post from yesterday...).
Me on the beach as well:
Near where we're staying:
Not sure I'd want to live down here permanently; in fact, I know I wouldn't. There are too many cars and too few nice cafes and bookstores, in summer it would be unbearable, and I just don't like living somewhere where there are so many obscenely rich people. But it's a fantastic break from the long British winter.
We found a new cafe today, which is where I'm posting this from. It's much nicer than the last one (note to previous cafe: if you use styrofoam cups for tea, it is undrinkable: tea should not taste of styrofoam), and they have some decent tea. I'm much happier here.
And, finally, because I can't live without good tea for even a few hours (addiction is a sad, sad thing), I broke down and bought some, along with a nice new cup, with a beautiful china strainer. The strainer, sadly, does a good job of letting the tea leaves through and a less good job of letting water through (how is this even possible?). It's worth it for decent tea, though.
