Four of my favorite things
...And all in the same place! Today I took advantage of the two hour break between my morning and afternoon sports classes and enjoyed my favorite lunch time activity: eating fresh grilled shrimp and fish at an ocean-side table with a view of the mountains! Yes, this activity for sure goes on the list of "things I will miss." I usually arrive at restaurants before the noon rush and enjoy listening to the waves lapping against the shore and the sea gulls squawking at each other. The affordable price will also be missed and that alone motivates me to schedule more of these before I leave! After enduring many years of gulping down school cafeteria food in the allotted 15-20 minutes, these occasional relaxing long lunch breaks are a great blessing. So now you know four of my favorite things that I will miss when I return to the states: fresh grilled fish, jumbo fresh grilled shrimp, the sounds of the ocean and the views of the mountains. I am so grateful for the beauty of Brazil I have been privileged to enjoy here in Florianopolis over the past years. I can honestly say however, that I am also starting to look forward to discovering new places as I travel in the US participating in Mission conferences and I anticipate traveling to new picturesque places internationally in the years to come.
