“In one drop of water are found all the secrets of the oceans”- Kahlil Gibran

I spent very little time at the beach on my recent trip to the Algarve, but there’s an ugly/beautiful stretch of river beach quite close to our home in Tavira.  On a warm, February, late afternoon I sat on a rock and just let my thoughts drift right out there, with the tide.

The Happy Traveler has kindly nominated me for the 3 Days, 3 Quotes challenge.  It’s taken me the longest time to respond.  Too much daydreaming and not enough action?  I apologise!

I’ll be back tomorrow with another quote.  If you’d like to take up the challenge, please feel free to do so.  Happy Thursday to you!

    1. It was an exhausted at the end of a walking day moment, Pauline. It was all I could do to click the camera 🙂 Thanks, sweetheart! Happy weekend to you and Jack 🙂

  1. Ugly/beautiful, yes Jo beauty is in everything we just need not to be too judgemental. If we slow down and look for the beautiful we will see it. This post is a reminder to slow down and go with the flow of nature. Your photos show the reward of appreciation.😊 That stressed out people miss out on. _/\_

    1. Thanks, Jack! 🙂 Right now I’m appreciating the rain drops pattering on the window just over my shoulder. Some folk would be glad to have them. Me, I’m just happy for some catch up time around the blogs 🙂

  2. Very relaxing post and quote. And are those yellow flowers some kind of bindweed? Evening primrose? I can’t see the leaves, but Becky might know. She seems to be a keen wild flower photographer in the Algarve.

    1. Hello, sweetheart 🙂 Feather duster buster put away for the evening! Going well? I’ve been calling them Yellow falseheads, Jude, because I saw that description in the walking trails guide. They’re everywhere like a Spring carpet in the Algarve, usually covering the fields so I was surprised to see them in this habitat. Windblown, I guess. I love a survivor 🙂
