Saturday at Salou

A delightful outing today to the seaside. My son-in-law is an excellent driver. His get-on-down-the-road style of motoring keeps getting my attention. For example, a complex stretch of street, a twisty interchange involving circles, invites attack rather than sedate traversal — a kind of throw-down that challenges the sacred bond between tire tread and asphalt. An experience to be had. We did a bit of trolling for fish so I could see his technique, but the season is over except for squid, he said. He uses artificial lures. There was a brisk southerly breeze and a light chop under a dazzling blue Mediterranean sky. A break from days of storm and rain.

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day. I like to read and memorize poetry.
