We started out bright an early... with a beach front walk all the way from Puerto Banus to Marbella. Usually ten minutes by car.. but the walk took us 2 hours.
It's a great walk to do on a crisp morning... (in comfy clothes and shoes).... And little pit stops along the way to have ice cream ( There's Hello Kitty Ice cream here!).
Checked out the Neptune sand sculpture again along the way, and it now has colour... And then when we finally got to Marbella, we had lunch. Tapas again of course. Yum! And Paella... double yum! Think that's the next thing I'm going to try to cook. (Though I think it needs a special rice, because I tried to make it many years ago, with our normal rice, and it turned out mushy).Chorizo (sausages)Pipping hot Gambas Al Pil Pil ... Best one I tasted so far (aside from my own of course!)
We made dinner reservations at Finca Besaya for 9pm. So damn late. Poor me... so hungry. Yet the Spanish don't have dinner until 10plus, so we were damn early by Spanish standards.Finca Besaya is a beautiful little restaurant up in the hills, it's part of a vineyard. The Birthday Boy. When it ccomes to menus, I'm so predictable. Mark practically picked out what I wanted to have... spot on.Foie gras... and grilled lamb... (droolicious)
Their Creme Brulee was rubbish though.
Mark had some cheesy thing for starter and a chickeny main. (I can't help it... I don't pay much attention to his food when I'm greedily eating my own)His dessert was a superb apple crumble though. I shared his because mine was so shit.
To Mark when he reads this- Even though the Spanish days are super long, I think your special day went far too quickly, and I wish we could have done more. But there'll be many more birthdays to come, and even more experiences together on this wonderful journey called life. I Love you.
