Six word Saturday

I’m back, but where to start?

Maybe with where I've just been?

You recognise it, of course!

And a bridge you must have seen before

And its companion, the Military Bridge

Now sporting a love lock or two

So pretty at sunset!

With a caipirinha, maybe?

In the Praca da Republica

Or a meal at my favourite restaurant, 'A Taska'

Some fine entertainment in the square

And a whirlwind of folk dance!

Followed by a stroll home in the moonlight

And that’s just a beginning!  I hope you will excuse me but I have so much catching up to do this weekend, along with my normal chores.  I should just about be ready for our Monday walk.

Have a happy weekend, won’t you?  I’ll be round as soon as possible.  Meantime, are you playing Six word Saturday?  Visit Cate at Show My Face to see how it’s done.

  1. It’s great to have you back, and as I said before you were missed!! Jo, thank you for sharing these fresh pics of Portugal so soon after your trip. I sure need them with all this rain and late Autumn feel. The photo featuring Military bridge at sunset is beautifully composed. Now, get rested for tomorrow’s walk. I will be coming along.

    1. Thanks, Paula 🙂 So sorry about your Mum’s problems and the floods. It’s always somebody’s turn, isn’t it?
      Done most of my ‘chores’. Just a bit more ironing but I need to do a little catch up next, not to mention that walk! 🙂

      1. Just take it easy.. it is not easy to go back to the old rut. We will be ok. Thank you for thinking of me,Jo. Looking forward to catching up…

  2. Welcome back, Jo! Glad you had a great time. I haven’t been blogging lately due to life generally, and hardly catch up with other r bloggers, but this morning I’m having a little stroll through the Reader….

    1. Good to hear from you, Sue 🙂 I’m back in the frantic catch up and still try to live my life cycle. It’s good to be out of the loop for a little while. And there’s always a nice warm welcome back 🙂

  3. Hurray! You’re back. I’ve missed your frequent presence on my screen. This post gives me a good taste of what you’ve been enjoying while I’ve been deprived.

    I’m a sucker for patterns and so I loved the first photo. You have a bit of a signature when it comes to bridges: all of them interesting in some way. And I loved the whirl of the dancers. A pretty diverse lot of photos, showing the diversity of your Portuguese pleasures. More please. And I’m looking forward to walking with you tomorrow. I may even drag you up a rocky hillside with me, if I get busy.

    1. Morning, Meg! 🙂 (or is it evening down there? I’m quite lost!) I saw your comment about a new blog on Jude’s so I’m all agog. How goes the 83 beach hunt? I’m beach walking tomorrow (if i can ever get through today and its chores).

  4. I love the patterns in that first photo. And the blue-and-white tiles. There’s something comforting–old and yet fresh and new–about blue-and-white pottery or china.

    1. Azulejos are my joy, Nicki, and I was always a sucker for Wedgwood and its pale perfection. 🙂 Many thanks for your email. I appreciate it and will respond when I’m sorted (if ever!!!)

  5. Welcome back Jo…a lovely little taster of more to come this. Love the ‘ducks’ on your plate…nice touch that! And as for the whirlwind dancing, what a great capture! Hope you soon get back to normal…whatever that is…and look forward to seeing you bright and early for your Monday walk… 🙂

    1. Not too early on Monday, Sherri! 🙂 🙂 I didn’t get home till 1.30 this morning and when I close my eyes I’m still in Tavira. (I’ve tried wishing very hard 🙂 )
      Hope all’s good with you? Are you on Jill’s this weekend? It must be about your turn.
      Cilic winning the Open! Could you believe?

      1. Haha..don’t worry Jo, I’m not an early bird 😉 But…I am more caught up with blogging, first time in weeks..months even… ! Hope you had a super time, sure you did. Wow, you are on the ball getting a post out so soon after your return.
        I’ve had a lovely week thanks Jo, it was my birthday on Wednesday so had lots of lovely time with family and off tonight with my brother and family for dinner. Struggled with some writing angst…but through it now, getting on….life goes on and all that 😉 Thanks for asking 🙂 Not on Jill’s yet, in a couple of weeks, and I need to get my answers over to her pronto!
        I know…can you believe it? Shocker that…
        See you soon … *hugs*

    1. Hiya Cathy! Dying to hear all about China 🙂 Are you settling in? Loving it, I hope! I saw your comment on the walk but haven’t had time to answer yet. Just got in at 1.30am and have zumba’d and caught up with James’ washing. Will be over later 🙂 I thought of you when we sailed past Santa Luzia. Hugs!

      1. You zumba’d at 1:30 a.m. You’re a wilder girl than I thought, Jo!

        It’s been slow settling in here in China, and the verdict is out as to whether I will really like it. It’s less than a year, I keep telling myself. I hope I’ll have the opportunity to get out of the city, because although interesting, I love nature. I’m not really sure how to get there yet!

        I’m glad you thought of me when you sailed past Santa Luzia. I remember that well. 🙂 Fond memories. xxx

      2. I should read my responses before I send them, Cathy! I meant I went to bed at 2, got up at 7, zumba’d at 10, and so on…. Silly me! 🙂
        It all looks very exciting from all I’ve seen so far. It’s one you have to get out of your system, and it will get better as you find your way around with your friendly interpreter (Caleb). You know I’m jealous. Take care!
