Sunday/ breakfast at the Sheraton

Shumai is a traditional Chinese dumpling  served in dim sum*; it’s essentially a pork and mushroom dumpling. It’s steamed in a wooden basket like the one on my plate.
*Dim sum is the collective name for a southern Chinese cuisine which involves a wide range of light dishes served alongside Chinese tea.

A few of us treated ourselves to a buffet breakfast at the Sheraton Hotel close by – expensive by Dameisha meal standards – but still very affordable at $20.

I just had some scrambled egg, toast and some shumai. (Gobbled up the first one of the two little dumplings in my bowl before I took the picture).

We went to the Dameisha beach afterwards. Some people were out on the beach, but it’s only slowly warming up.  Highs today reached only 60 ºF (15 ºC), with the sun is struggling to come out.    We may go to a resort close by where we live this afternoon with a cable car that runs up the mountains with a panoramic view.

Angels and a sparse crowd on the main beach in Dameisha. It’s hard to see where the sea meets the sky in the hazy distance. The Sheraton hotel is close by and has its own stretch of sand just for its guests.
