July Lunch was a success with 25 people turning up and sitting at 2 tables to conform with regulations. The 15€ menu seemed to be appreciated although Hazel had to wait 25 minutes for her chicken as the Chair took her order. The waiter should have done a head count, but aside from that he was very hard working. Next lunch is scheduled for Wednesday, 12 August and will be at La Restaurante La Barraca, , Calle Torre, 13 in Puerto.
Humanists of Murcia Summer Solstice
The Summer Solstice took place on Monday with 27 people showing up including Birthday Girl, Sheila. The Petanca was won by Pat & John beating Rick & Liz in the final and Giant Jemga, much to their delight, by Jim & Bernice edging out Carole & Eileen . The chicken was popular which is just as well as Joan & Jon had a hunt for a shop open on a Monday (the one by the bus stop in Mazarrón).
Social distancing & hand wash were in evidence and the odd mask.
An easterly wind kept the temperature down.
