Fantastic! Wish I were there! Everything is out of this world! The architecture is stunning and you have totally captured it.

The table is so simple and elegant, but the food, especially that dessert is anything but simple. Wow, I love gorgeous desserts. Thanks for taking us along.

What a gloriously beautiful place! The sunlight alone makes my heart happy, let alone the water and gorgeous views. :-)
