Hello lovely ladies,
here we are again on Tuesday. Are we all ready for the T-Party? Then join us at Elizabeth and Bleubeard's with a blog post with something drink related in it.
Let me show you some postcards i received recently. This one came from Russia. In French it says: Nikitski Imperial Garden. In the corner is a little colur photo of what i assume is a modern view of the same garden. I went online and found that the gardens still exist. They are in Yalta in the Krimea.
The interesting bit is the stamp on the front, and looking closely i can see that the stamp features the same spot in the day time.
Now for my drink reference: Friday hubby and I went out with our friends to eat pizza at a restaurant called La Gondola. This is the pizza Hawaii divided up, ready to eat. And my drink is... red wine (Ribeira del Duero for those who want to know)
I have no idea what hubby is laughing about.
And this was my dessert: panna cotta with a raspberry sauce.
We went to the south coast last week for a little break. On the way back we stopped at the Rules reservoir.It is in a beautiful area called the Alpujarras. They are the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. (We live on the other side of the mountains)
The Guadalfeo river and its network of tributaries drain in the territorial unity of La Alpujarra, located in the southeast of the Granada province.
Purpose of the dam:
– Protection against flooding from the Guadalfeo lower valley and his rich delta
– Supply the coast population (approx. 250.000 inhabitants)
– Irrigation of 5.000 hectares
The Rules Reservoir basin has an area of 1.070 km 2, has an average annual rainfall of 600 mm and an average annual contribution of 150 hm3.
The type of the dam is Gravity Arch, arc of 500 m of radius and has a coronation length of 531 m.
The reservoir has a surface area of 345 hectares and a capacity of 117 Hm3.
That is all from me today.
Elizabeth mentioned Georgia o'Keefe and when I saw this little cartoon, I had to think of her. So Elizabeth, this is for you:
