Six word Saturday

Home is where the heart is?

I seem to keep leaving mine behind.  It’s a bad habit!

Who wouldn't love a place that looked like this?

Who wouldn’t love a place that looked like this?

With Nativity scenes like this

With Nativity scenes like this

And this

And this

And a pontoon bridge like this

And a pontoon bridge like this

Countryside like this

Countryside like this

Washing on a line like this

Washing on a line like this

Even with moody skies like this

Even with moody skies like this.

Or how about happy dogs on a sunset beach like this

Or how about happy dogs on a sunset beach like this

Beside the ferry, abandoned for the winter

Beside the ferry, abandoned for the Winter,

Or maybe a view like this would charm

Or maybe a view like this would charm

Views like this

Or even, like this?

I expect you can see why I keep leaving my heart behind?  Each time, I say “Goodbye little house”, with a lump in my throat.

It’s Saturday again, and six words time. Cate at Show My Face is our hostess. Would you like to play?

  1. It’s so beautiful there Jo. I love the countryside and the beach and no people would be fine too..heheheh
    Great post hon! *hugs*

      1. Now that is great news Jo. I will come and travel with you then..hahahaha.

        Having a good one for sure hon and hope to hear the same. 😀 *hugs*

    1. A couple of years back there were some severe forest fires in the countryside quite near Tavira, Laurie. Such is the resilience that it bounces back looking like this. I loved the charred looking branches against the orange groves. We did! Lots of long walks 🙂

  2. Just wonderful …. every time you have been down there and return home with your photos I wish I was there too – have checked flights to Newcastle – but forget it – cost two arms and a leg – I’m sure it’s much easier to catch up with you in Portugal.
    Beautiful post and I understand completely that you have left most of your heart behind.

    1. Hi Vivi 🙂 Just come back from my first English walk since I got home. Freezing fog isn’t the best of weathers- reality check! But wouldn’t you know it- now we’re home, the sun is shining and the world looks a different place. Think I’ll go and visit Michael’s 97 year old auntie this afternoon. Hate being in when the sun’s shining, and an hour in the nursing home will make me grateful for what I’ve got.
      Thank you for your kind words. I’m sure we’ll manage to meet one of these days 🙂 Sending hugs till then!

      1. I hope you made to the nursing home, bet she was happy over seeing you. 97 years old – that is one grand old lady.
        Wonderful.
        It’s cold, windy and chilly here, but the temperature is still not under plus minus zero. And I need my freezer defrosted. Come on frost and sunshine.
        I really hope us – that we will meet up … drink some Mojitos together – let our cameras go wild. *laughing.
        I hope tomorrow is a more pleasant day for us both. Going to the day clinic and get my power port rinsed. Yes, it’s the real name. So I want sunshine.
        Hug before bedtime and nighttime. *smile

    2. Beautiful sunrise this morning, Vivi. I’m watching too much tennis this week, and it’s from Australia so my clock is distorted 🙂 Cold, cold weather is coming your way I think, so wrap up warm. Going to Dads to do some cleaning later. Big hug!

      1. Sunshine and tennis sounds okay for me too. We had 15 min of sunshine yesterday. *smile
        You’re so right .. we have cold weather and the wind makes it icing – but only -3C, not much for this time of year, but maybe a chance for me to defrost my freezer tomorrow night. *smile

  3. Aww these are lovely Jo . You’ll be back soon no doubt .
    Hey cheeky .. a picture is worth a thousand words 🙂
    have a great week !

  4. Delightful photo parade and well-cherished moments !!! You very well know how to reminisce the past and live the present !!! Belated warm wishes for the NY too !!!
    All the best,
    Doda

  5. Hello Jo,
    What a beautiful place to visit. I love all your pictures but my favorites are the one with the red aloes on the beach, the wall with the little turret, and the washing on the line.

    1. Hi Rosie 🙂 Did you enjoy your visit with Cathy? I can imagine you (or she 🙂 ) never stopped talking! Yes, my second home is a lovely place. I miss it when I’m not there.
