Frank, Rex, Katherine and I enjoyed our morning coffee along the riverside. What a kick for us to just walk there in minutes, and meet up with these two.
Later Ria escorted us on a walk to Tavira, over an hour away walking along goat trails, past salt ponds, and here, past Carob trees. Ria, the garden club aficionado, gives Frank the story of carob beans being all equal sizes, and hence the standard for a karat of gold, with the word karat derived from the word carob. And so the day went. You get two Dutch people and you learn everything!
Ria and I enjoying Tavira. Later all of us went to a lecture at the library and a dinner in town. Frank and I will miss these energized friends when they soon depart.
