Six word Saturday


What time do you call this?

Silly o'clock in the morning?

But this makes it all worthwhile

And this guy raised a smile!

And this guy made me smile!

My feet have barely touched the ground since I got back from Tavira yesterday afternoon, and before you know it I’ll have gone again!  Just time to gather up six words and a few photos, and to crave your indulgence as I try to catch up with you all.  Thank you so much for the wonderful comments and visits you have made.  Very ‘early doors’ on Thursday I’m heading to Poland with Dad, so sharing my happy memories will have to keep for a while.

How about a bird's eye view?

Just time for a bird’s eye view, from the Castle walls

And there's always time for flowers!

I will be fitting in one very English walk on Monday, before I go, so please join me then, if you can.  In the meantime, have a great weekend, and I’m sure you can find six words to share with Cate at Show My Face.



  1. I just love the clouds in that bird’s eye photo, and then your capture at dusk with light reflected and silly hour in the morning and the mouthless graffiti 🙂 All wonderful!

      1. 5th June to Norfolk, early August the Balloon Festival in Bristol, mid September a Polish wedding. The rest’s a blank canvas 🙂 🙂 I know you’re going to Lisbon and Evora but I can’t remember where else in Portugal? Driving?

      2. 4 days- visiting Polish family, again. Boat builders in Norfolk 🙂 I’m going to try to work on my Polish over the Summer. I was on the verge of conversation before I came home. Not easy! 🙂 My last wedding for a while (I hope) and there will be a new baby to see when I go back again.

      3. Dad was taken from home at age 15. His education was incomplete and he has no idea what a verb is. He only knows how to speak Polish. I don’t! It doesn’t work.

  2. How beautiful! Oh Jo, I’ll be away this weekend and then the following week in Jersey with my mum for 5 days (first time we’ve taken a holiday together for years) so I’ll be dipping in and out even more than usual too! If I don’t get the chance to say it before, have a super time in Portugal with your dad and I’ll catch up with you as much as possible. Big hugs and happy, safe travels to you my friend 🙂

    1. Jersey with Mum will be fabulous, Sherri! I’ve never been there but I bet it’s lovely in the Spring. Thanks for the good wishes. I may have some PC access in Poland so I’ll look out for you 🙂

      1. Thanks Jo, looking forward to the break very much, even if hubby and I haven’t yet managed to plan one yet, but we will, oh we will!! I’ll be sure to take loads of photos, some more walks coming up for you for sure! I like that you’ll be looking out for me. Happy safe travels my friend 😀

  3. Have a safe and wonderful trip with your Dad in Poland Jo. Loved this series of photographs – a place that should be on my bucket list.

    1. Thank you! 🙂 I’ve started muttering bits of Polish to myself but they never seem to amount to a conversation when I get there. Nobody else speaks idiot Polish 😦

    1. Cheers, Sammy, and you’re very welcome. 🙂 I will be trying to fit in visits before I take to the skies again but I need to finish my Monday walk first. Happy Sunday!

      1. Don’t worry. We all know you will visit us when you’re not enmeshed in travel and walks!! Reduce your to-do’s to enjoy your moments. 🎀

    1. I see it frequently, Gilly, but sometimes a little too early. I was up writing 6WS just after 5 this morning. Tired now! 🙂 Is this your Barca weekend? Have the best time, if so- or are you just back?

  4. It is so much more than silly! The photo with the lights reflecting and the tents in a row is gorgeous, Jo! I did see how you were meaning this to be light hearted, though!

  5. Wonderful views of a happy place. It obviously brings so much joy into your life and now you get to go to Poland with your father. How special. I look forward to the stories. 🙂

    1. I have to keep a travel diary, Lynne, or I’d have forgotten everything! The photos bring it all back but I need a little memory nudge too 🙂 Thank you, darlin’.

    1. It is going to be a year of trips, Helen, and I’m greedy- that’s the way I like it. 🙂 I try to cram it all in. Who knows how long it will last? Thanks a lot!

    1. The exhausting life, Debbie 🙂 Mick’s still complaining about his knee after last Thursday’s walk! Poor old soul. 🙂 I’m all sympathy! Poland will be more relaxed because I’ll be a guest. Thanks, hon. 🙂

    1. Don’t I work hard at it, Viv? It’s quite exhausting! 🙂 Mick is still complaining about his knees after a walk we did on Thursday! Such a pretty flower, too 🙂

    1. I have a culprit, Elaine. My son returns home most weekends with his washing and if I’m away there’s twice as much! My own fault really, but not so easy to do anything about. And then there’s Dad, of course 🙂 I would happily just blog and travel but I don’t seem to’ve managed it yet 🙂 Thanks, hon.

    1. I did, but am now paying the price for turning my back on the world for 5 minutes 🙂 (how is it possible to dirty THAT many clothes???) Will catch you soon, Rommel! Cheers 🙂
