Wild wind and wild food.

Summer is here in full swing. And by full swing, I mean its full on windy. We have had a howling south-easter blowing for days. Causing havoc in the gardens, drying out the soil, whipping up our summer skirts, blowing sand in our faces and flattening out the surf. For days.

But the elements did not stopped us from having two more amazing Coastal Forages.

Coastal Foraging

Gathering food along a windswept beach only made us even more hungry for the feast we prepared…

It was an even more blustery day for the second group…

A taste so fresh you have to eat it to believe it.

There was a satisfied silence as we tucked in around the table. Only punctuated every now and then by grunts and sighs of appreciation from the hungry hunters.

We will be repeating this Coastal forage course next year and would love you to come and join us.

Happy Summer living!
