It was 8.30 before the streets cooled down enough to take Bonnie for a walk.
For a Birthday walk as she was 10 years old today. The clock on the pharmacy still said it was 30C but a cool breeze was blowing down the main street and it felt pleasant.
I decided to stop for an orxata – the delicious drink made from tiger nuts, water and sugar.
But I didn’t stop at that, I ordered a cubano which is a glass of orxata with a large dollop of ice cream inside. Usually I have vanilla ice cream but tonight I wanted coconut
It came with a straw which had a little spoon attached at the bottom, so you can alternate between drinking and eating
I’m afraid I then ordered another – exactly the same. Well it is Summer Solstice.
