A sassy spring picnic
The first day of spring sees a Middle Eastern breakfast on the beach.
Under dappled light…
a bevvy of bamboo brollies…
gently shade a feast…
…of strawberries warmed by the sun
…haloumi grilled on an open flame
…pitta bread ready for filling
…and lovingly home-made Koftas.
Chilled lemon, lime and soda quenches the thirst…
As we celebrate the beautiful Sas.
Three cheers for spring!
