For very good friends we can manage to get up in the middle of the night (5am). Admittedly I do need about two cups of coffee before I can open my eyes wide enough to see anything.
Not that there is much to see its like the picture to the left. Yes, here in Mer we do have some street lights but if you leave within meters it is just pitch black. Cloud cover allowing you see plenty of stars and if there is a full moon you can actually walk without problems. But yesterday it was just black with some twinkling stars.
Going into Monforte was fun as the streets where deserted except for some leftover disco goers and the first street cleaners.
Returning to Mer the sky lightened and a bit later the sun peaked through. Its an incredible peaceful view. Even the cows are still half asleep and silently munching.
By the way I’m trying including a new script. So when you click on this image you should see a full screen one. Some of the images just loose too much if I reduce the size so every now and than I’ll sprinkle in a full sized one(Just scroll and click outside the picture to return). Do not forget there are lots of photos on the slide show.
If you think this works well please let me know.
Now to living in a vine row.
My neighbour Pepe does look longingly at my vines this year. “You have quite a lot….” is a comment that makes me proud. I’ve only been here for a bit more that two years and in the first year he gave me a crash course in how to cut vines. I think I learned the lesson well.
When I was tending the grapes and vines, taking out shoots and letting in more light and air I also found the clear sigh of other creatures who think its a good idea to be near the future wine.
If one looks closely the incredible architecture of this nest becomes apparent. Its not just something cobbled together.
This is another one that should open a full size view when clicked.
