Two weekends ago we got our first major dose of sunshine. My pleasure at this was infinitely heightened by some fresh tropical fruit that I’d found at a new supermarket. As my tastebuds got reacquainted with the wonderful flavour of fresh guava, and I finally got my first taste of dragon fruit, the day took on an island feel. An ocean mirage appeared outside my window. It’s amazing how wonderful simple, beautiful fruit can make you feel. High on life I joined the rest of the city, which had seen to come alive, soaking up the heat by the waterfront and at the local farmer’s market. A tropical experience in a northern city that took on the name and feel of its Jamaican counterpart for me that day.
Wishing you the best of everything,
