Six word Saturday

Random moments from an Algarve week

Fonte Pequena (little fountain) at Alte

It had just bounced with rain and the bottle brush plant was sodden.

The Folklore Festival and Wedding Ceremony at Alte

 Then there’s one that would fit well in my recent post on “fontes”.

The fountain in Praca da Republica, Tavira

And an item that I was much taken with.  More to come in a future post.

The Tavira vase, on display in the new Islamic Museum

Then my little side trip with Flat Ruthie.

The village of Sanlucar de Guadiana, on the Spanish side of the Spain/Portugal border

So now you know how I spent my week.  It was wonderful looking back and now it’s your turn.  To play Six word Saturday you need to visit Cate’s Show My Face so click on the link or the banner at the top of this page, and get started.  My Six word Saturday page will show you what I’ve been up to in the past.  Feel free to browse.  See you next week.


    1. I’m assured by my plant expert (know it all!) husband that it’s a calystemnon (though I’ve probably spelt it wrong), but I’ve always known them as bottle brush plants. I love them and we have a baby one outside our Tavira house.

  1. You are blessed to be a part of such a beautiful, vibrant and culturally rich place. The pictures are just amazing. I wish I get to see this place one day. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Such a beautiful place you spent your week at! Loved the pictures from the festival; interesting event to attend; I think I would like it!

    may you have a great rest of the weekend!


    1. Thanks Betty. I really didn’t think we were going to see the Folklore Festival as the skies opened just as we got there and we were marooned in the car for threequarters of an hour. We were very lucky and the skies cleared so the procession could go ahead in this lovely setting. I must add something to my “A is for Alte” post- it was beautifully done, with lavender strewn on the floor for the folk groups to walk over.
