Last Sunday we met Bruce who is the father of our next door neighbour in Havelock North – see the It’s a Small World After All post. Anyway Bruce invited us to a BBQ at his place on Friday night. It was one of his friend’s birthdays.
We had a little bit of trouble finding the place but when we did we were given the same warm welcome we had received the Sunday before. There were a few people there that we had met at Lennon Bar the previous Sunday.
Most of the crew are either from the UK or Ireland. There was also a Dutch couple there. They have all been living in the Algarve for a number of years, hence the term foreign locals.
It was a great night and nice to have some BBQed meat and salads. Steve got a couple of bottles of Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc from the local supermarket and announced to the crew that he had bought it all the way from NZ. I piped up and said yes, all the way from Apolonia, NZ – Apolonia is the local supermarket! That was the start of the grief that Steve preceded to get all night – I tell you he brings it all on himself!
