Whoever said ‘to travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive’? Nosing this one neat we had gladly arrived – sea salt, seaweed, sweet shrimp scampi cooked in melted butter with garlic and sliced bell pepper over a driftwood/peat barbeque. To taste we added a glass of Manzanilla Sherry and some lemon juice to the Angel hair pasta. Water brought out the hors d’oeuvres, creamy potted lobster mousse as well as crispy seaweed thin crackers. And for that final splash we added smoked mussels to the pan and enjoyed a delightful barbeque on the beach watching the sunset. Are you there yet?
