Day 12 Saturday 24/12/2022 Portland, warm 21
A walk into town for more bread is a lovely amble around the now busy shops. Christmas carols are playing and street stall sausages are sizzling.
I love the hush on Christmas Eve, when businesses close and nothing more can be bought. The quiet expectation that Christmas is coming. Our Christmas eve dinner is a cold platter of salmon gravlax and Spanish ham washed down with a bottle of sparkling Durif and some Portuguese tarts. I think that baker has hijacked our Christmas!
