Soon it will be summer solstice, the longest day of the year up here in the northern hemisphere. I’d guess for some of the summer you are in Cabanas, enjoying the beach. With Tiago I imagine. I hope it is wonderful, the water warm, the days long and lazy.
I leave here the URL and password for a film, Nas correntes de luz da Ria Formosa, shot down there, long ago. Your voice as a small child occasionally can be heard.
