Here are some photos of our trip to our first and so far our only wine tasting. True that is a crime so we promise to do it again! Although we DO taste plenty of wine, just not at their vineyards.
The dinner party turned into 9 and we learned that 8 is a better number but hard to exclude anyone here as there are so few of us on boats in the winter. When we can sit outside we can have more guests. And we need to put a no smoking sign on the boat. There were ashes all over the deck in the AM. YUK! The food was delicious and it was fun going to the fish market with Claude, who we have nicknamed the Catalan ambassador. He was the evening chef and had many of us a sous chefs. To buy the food he took us to Port Vendres, which has many fishing boats. The name was originally Greek and meant Venus, the Goddess of love. The market was super cool but the lobster? They charge 99 euros/Kg! Why would anyone eat it? I guess it’s like caviar. No comprendo. And speaking of Spanish, I’ve found that if someone doesn’t speak or understand English. there is a good chance they do speak Spanish. Whew!
