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!
