A complimentary dish of little mussels came as we chatted to a friendly German couple sat on the next table. They'd recognised us from a few days earlier at Aponiente.
Mrs Bacon had set her heart on some local Oysters (€1.65 each) and they were wonderfully fresh as you'd expect.
We also had some Gambas al Ajillo (€12) and Tuna Tartare, (€14), all simple and fine quality.
This time we went for a different rice dish; Arroz con Carabineros (Risotto with scarlet shrimps, €19.50 per person). God this was good, a big black pot of golden liquid velvet stock, so rich in the flavours of the sea but not over salted.
It's easy to look back on life events and say I was happy then, at that exact moment as we were for that hour or two sat on a beach eating fine food in front of the sun going down. The trick is to properly appreciate it there and then, as you're living it, and we did just that.
