Back onto trips after a day or two of lazing. In the morning off to Cadiz to have a quick look around the old town before special lunch appointment.
The old town is quaint with narrow streets and some fine architecture. The jewel is the cathedral - spacious, filled with light from the central dump and filled with astonishing side chapels. Each one separated out to mark a saint etc. Each with a semi circular recess belied by the straight exterior walls. It was impressive in scale and design.
A well spoken commentary on mobile device explains each area with good historical and social narrative.
It was a delight.
Then having momentarily disposed of children on the beach it was off to Aponiente a Michelin starred restaurant in Puerto de Santa Maria. Not in an obvious setting but when the gates open the 19th century flower mill is revealed in its glory. Astraddle a tidal canal the powers of the tide ground the flour. Now stunningly converted and spectacularly beautiful. The clever design and decoration add to the most fantastic cuisine - all fish based with interesting ideas on jellyfish, plankton and more exotic fishes - it
is a delight.
Three hours of nicely paced dishes testing the pallette as well as the eye. A fantastic way to eat and enjoy a sunny afternoon.
