Six word Saturday














Don’t recognise it?  It’s Tavira in the Algarve, but I’m home again, with that pocketful of memories.  You know I love to share, so here I am, participating in Six word Saturday.

Have a beautiful weekend, wherever you are, and don’t forget to join Cate at Show My Face.  Just click on the logo, or the links.



  1. Wow, you really kept it to 6 words! Lucky for me, and thanks to you, I’ve seen Tavira not only through your lovely posts, but in person! Oh how I miss it!! Soon to be traveling again though. 🙂

  2. This is a pretty …. I understand why you love and enjoy it so much – such a lovely place.
    Been here before and I enjoy returning every time. Thank you, Jo!

      1. Good Morning. My morning is so chilly – where has the summer gone??? Hope Summer is with you.
        I love to be a lovely company. *smile
        Breakfast hug.

  3. How lovely it is to see Tavira through your lens! A beautiful shot to wrap up, excellent composition in the pic with tiny white boats, locals relaxing, and a mandatory flower from you 🙂 Thank you for sharing your memories 🙂

    1. Are you still wearing your earphones? 🙂 I have the footballers in my living room, with their whistles and noise! I escaped to the kitchen to cook but I’m here again, in sympathy with you 🙂
      It’s a lovely place, Paula. I so enjoy writing my walks. tomorrow’s is ready to go. Hugs!

      1. Are they watching France vs Honduras or analyzing the yesterday’s match? 😀 I am off earphones and watching the game too 😀 I will come tomorrow to see your post and will have something ready for next week. Hugs

      2. Watching 🙂 Yesterday is history. We fight on! Fingers, eyes and toes crossed 🙂 My son is a Spain supporter. They made England look good.

      3. I also supported Spain mainly because I don’t like the nation they played against. The only match that really interests me is taking place on Wednesday, and I know that we will win 🙂

    1. It’s half written, Sherri 🙂 Yesterday I was enjoying just a smidgeon of English sunshine, but it’s totally gone today so I think blogging will win out, after the jobs 🙂

    1. Just a ‘snippet’, Rosemary 🙂 I’ve doctored it down a lot but there are still 400 photos from my week over there. I promise not to show them all at once 🙂

    1. I’m trying, Jill! 🙂 Every time I start my Monday walk post another comment or two pops up and I’m back here again 🙂 Thank you so much! I love your support.

  4. Nice to see you again Jo – a short but sweet trip, I look forward to the stories behind these snapshots. And love the vygie – well that’s what we called them in SA, but I think we know them as mesembryanthemums here. Grew all over the sand-dunes and vlei and spectacular in spring.

    1. I’ve just had this discussion with Amanda, Jude. Mick calls them Hottentot Figs, I’ve always thought they were Livingstone Daisies, but a notice board at Sagres described them as Ice Plants? One of us may be right 🙂 But it doesn’t matter because they’re beautiful.

  5. Welcome back Jo. Beautiful photos. I take it the camera recovered fully from its bath? Looks like the laptop is humming along as well. Good news on both fronts i hope.

  6. Oh I do like your set up for this! It’s so very lovely too. Enjoy all and especially your pocketful of memories!

  7. Wonderful photos Jo! We were just talking about visiting Costa Rica or Portugal I think you have swayed me to see Portugal first! Glad you are back but sorry you had to leave such a beautiful place.

    1. Those are two very different options, Tonya 🙂 I can’t speak for Costa Rica but it does look very beautiful in photos. You know how I feel about Portugal!

    1. Hi Amanda 🙂 A week ago I would have told you it was a Livingstone Daisy or Hottentot Fig, but we actually saw them on a notice board described as Ice plants. They like beachside locations and dry conditions and I love them. They come in lemon yellow too.

    1. Thanks, Dawn 🙂 I’m not going to say it’s good to be back, but I suppose it is. Washing and ironing and cooking are easy to live without, aren’t they? Though, to be fair, I did some in the Algarve too. It just feels different.

  8. Aaaah! A sigh of contentment that you’re back, and that you shared your tranquillity in the Algarve through such beautiful photos. I’m drawing breath on a rainy day in Warsaw, trying to get my head around the fact that I’m not wandering any more, and learning to play in a Polish sandpit with two fast-moving entities!

    1. Sandpit? Po polsku? I don’t suppose I’ll need the expression in a hurry, but you never know 🙂
      It sounds more fun than the washing and ironing. I can’t wait to start on my Monday walk post.

    1. They are variations on a theme, Ann, so they’re new to everyone, but instantly recognisable to some. It’s my second home and I miss it if I’m gone too long. Hope you’re having a gentle weekend. 🙂

    1. Glad you got the laptop sorted 🙂 Eeh, the challenges life brings, Viv! Mine is still limping along. We’ll have to bite the bullet for a new one or an iPad soon. Hope you’re having a happy time.

    1. Did you spot ‘me’ on the bridge, Rough? It made me smile when I saw the photo. We met some new neighbours, and I managed to fall down a ‘hole’ while out walking. Just 2 of my highlights 🙂 Fortunately for me, I seem to bounce better than you.
