There is nothing like sitting at the beach in the sunlight – even though it is still slightly chilly by the water. The waves were gently flushing ashore with calm sighs as they rhythmically reached the sandy beach. I decided to make the most of the day since the weather forecast promised rain this afternoon. Therefore, after the meeting with my midwife (the obligatory one when you are in week 35), I decided to bicycle down to the beach and sat down on an old trunk, unpacking a simple lunch.
What is it about food – any food – that makes it taste so much better outside? The most boring dry bread with a slice of meat topping can suddenly seem extremely delicious. The veggies seem fresher and richer in taste and the tap water tastes much cleaner. I should spend more days eating outside, because it is truly a blessing.
