organic beef by the sea (or is that surf & turf?)

4 long months have passed since my last did that happen? nothing to say, not enough time, spinning my wheels ??? probably all of the above. So I am back - refreshed, inspired and ready to blog 'n roll.
We've just spent 2 weeks in beautiful Vanuatu. Gorgeous country and gorgeous people and amazing Santo beef. I confess, I had never heard of Santo beef until we booked this trip. Espiritu Santo is Vanuatu's biggest island lying to the north of Port Vila. and it has an amazing beef industry. Free range, organic, pesticide-free - the way farming should be. It was the tastiest beef we have ever had. Cattle drinking the sea water. It was the craziest thing I have ever seen and here's the proof.

The island is full of fresh water streams that seep out through the sand and into the ocean. We watched this cow for a few minutes while she stood and scoped, waiting for the fresh water to appear and then started to drink. Holy cow.
