Lima Dreaming……..another day in paradise………

The wifi has been a bit of a problem this trip but not so much that I am worried. I have more time to do absolutely nothing. The week days at the beach are perfect it really is a case of get up have breakfast (use the wifi) go to the beach and then sleep. I must admit the tan is coming along just nicely!.

Yesterday we ventured to Lurin market about 15 minutes drive away just for a look, we certainly didn’t buy anything useful but the photos are good.

The end of the day is surfing time for the King of Peru apparently it is his office.

Peppers in the market

Yummy Nuts

Everything is colourfully packaged you want to buy it even if you don’t need it

Soap powder

Bags of Rice

Shopping Bags hanging

The flowers are always wonderful

A Lima dreaming sunset that I have to share………

It is not often that I manage to take a decent photo so yesterday as the King of Peru and I sat on the balcony looking at a spectacular sunset I decided to dust off the Nikon. I haven’t used the camera in a very long time so I was more than a little surprised when I managed to produce this little number. Thank you Nikon

Sunset at Caballeros beach in Punta Hermosa

Lima Dreaming with a breakfast Bellini and an oceanview………

Finally I am in Lima and it is wonderful (despite the usual wifi problems) and I will be sharing all of my adventures with you. Every year we have a bellini for breakfast which we drink on the balcony whilst looking at the ocean (blessed)

Lima Dreaming Countdown 11 Days To Beachlife…………

The excitement is building with only eleven days to go!! When we are in Peru we always split out time, its weekends in Lima and weekdays at the beach. I know my clothes will be in the wardrobe waiting for me, the beach, the food, the walks the view it is all amazing. It is time just spent chilling on the beach whilst the King of Peru surfs (I may give it go again) or walking along the coast for Piccarones (a bit like donuts but way better) or doing nothing at all.

These are some of the things I am l looking forward to at the beach.

My Charo Ruiz Ibiza skirt (love the colour)

Sergio Rossi sandals (tanned legs and orange sandals)

Hats (I do love my sun hats)

Not very long to our annual trip to Lima now and I am so excited!  Peru is full of colour where ever you look from the blue skies to amazing flowers but the local markets are also full of treasures.

My Lima Dreaming countdown has begun with a view………….

It is grey outside today so I thought I would share a little sunshine and ocean with everyone. I always say I won’t countdown the days until Lima every year but once I get to mid November I just can’t help myself. (it is 43 days to go) It isn’t wishing my life away it is just pure excitement to see family, walk on the sand, enjoy the sun and enjoy a Bellini to two!

This view always brings tears to my eyes (happy not sad) on the first morning and it is usually accompanied by a breakfast Mimosa or a Bellini.
