Happiness is Alfresco dining !   Long warm summer nights, lazy lunches under shading vines, picnics by the sea, friends, and family gathered near, it's my favourite time of year. Holidaymakers, intrepid travelers, 'Hens' reveling, renewing of vows, wedding wonders,...

How the years have flown.

How the years have flown.
