Fancy a treat?

One reason why I love to visit the coast is for delicious seafood, fresh fish and…


What a wonderful treat!

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Exactly! Though I have been disappointed with the sauce sometimes, not usually the ones from the coast and definitely not this one. So good I went back again!

  1. I came looking for benches, which I much prefer to mussels. Perhaps not to eat, though 🙂 I don’t really like any shell fish, not even the prawns everyone drools about. But I do love fish! And your header pic is sensational 🙂 (that’s what you were up to instead of trick or treating 🙂 ) I thought it was a beach shot that you’d played about with, Jude, but I love it, whatever! Back later to check out the bench. See ya! 🙂

    1. That New Zealand beach (black sand) was incredible. I really hope son moves there whilst I am still able to fly that distance. I’d love to spend a few months travelling around that country. And I’ll have your prawns 🙂

  2. Mmmmm fresh seafood. Delicious. We had fresh whiting and scallops, caught the same day, for lunch the other day. Then in the supermarket we saw scallops imported from Peru. What a disgrace. And I couldn’t help wondering how old they were.

    1. If only we could get back to eating local produce then I think we’d all be better off (except those making money out of it) and eat fresh when in season, instead of stuff kept for months in refrigeration 😦
      (Sorry, I seem to be in a rant mood lately)

  3. I adore mussels and what an amazing shot, but your header photo is absolutely beautiful. Are those the actual colour of those shells, or enhanced by the sun? They’re stunning…

        1. It is beautiful Sherri. I only saw a very small part, but fell in love. I could live there, but too late now unless I divorce OH and find myself a Kiwi 😉

        2. I remember your wonderful NZ posts from last year Jude…where does the time go? Not so sure OH would be keen on that idea 😛
