It just so happens that I wore my bright red Vans while visiting the Bahia Palace, with its brightly colored mosaics.
The first picture I took against the green squiggly lines.. and the following picture shows where that path leads. Then the bottom picture.. I looked down and was just amazed by the colors.
My following posts will (hopefully) show how beautiful this palace was. Though, the story of this palace is that it was supposed to be so grand and beautiful that they wanted it to be the greatest palace of its time. But it was so rushed in the making that it didn’t end up living to its reputation. Even so, I thought it was still beautiful.
A few of us gathered here on July 20th in remembrance of my mother-in-law’s death anniversary. It’s her two year anniversary this year.. it’s hard to believe that it’s been two years already. We miss her and love her dearly.. but she taught us to celebrate every day.
She also taught us to spoil ourselves - that includes food! =)
We started off with a tray of Blue Point Oysters and Spicy Tuna Tartare. I got a cup of sangria because I’m trying to build my tolerance (my boyfriend had to finish the second half of my cup for me) and for an entree I got the Pappardelle with a sunny side up egg.
Chocolate con 12 churros (we ate two prior to this picture.. we couldn’t wait!)! Then a cup of cafe latte.
Last time I went to Spain a few months ago and I ate these for a snack.. I didn’t realize this meal was considered a breakfast! I’m not sure if it was just the place we chose, but the churros and chocolate we ate in Barcelona were better than these. These weren’t bad.. the others were just better.
