Six word Saturday


An escape from all the madness



So many images I’ve yet to share with you from my April trip to Tavira!  I’m returning, for another week, on Wednesday.  Beautiful though Britain is, I can’t pretend it won’t be a relief to escape for a little while.  Even grey days over there are greeted with a sunny smile and a wave.

It will be hot, so there won’t be much walking, but almost certainly a little toe dabbling, and lazily watching clouds gather on the horizon.


Early mornings and long warm evenings will be the best times, when I can look out on the world at peace, or enjoy a little quiet companionship.


I will still be walking with you on Monday, but I haven’t decided where yet.  Then I’ll quietly disappear.  Maybe it will all make sense when I return.

Do enjoy your weekend.  I’m off to zumba, as soon as I’ve checked in on Cate.  Share your six words?



      1. A bit chilly at the moment, a 3 blanket night tonight. But after all it is mid-winter and should soon cheer up again…

  1. Looks like a beautiful break ahead for you Jo. Yes the world seems full of madness. I hope your time is peaceful and I will imagine your toes in the warm waters.

  2. Follow the path of the flowers, Jo. Their smells and colors will brighten the spirit and so will spending some time abroad. Have a great trip!!

  3. Madness is everywhere and we all need an escape…. I’m considering Mars but I don’t think that would be far enough!

  4. Your six-words are exactly how I’m feeling these days. So your result was the perfect way to escape. Love the photographs Jo.

    1. Time to book a short break, Mary? No guarantees that anything will have improved when you get back, but nice while it lasts. 🙂 Thanks, hon.

      1. Leaving this Thursday for a 5-day vacation and attend my nieces wedding. That will be a special break for me. Hope you have a beautiful week Jo.

  5. Oh, lucky you having some place to escape to. Pleeeease bring some heat back with you! Love the blue skies, the beaches, the flowers…. I think I may visit the decorator’s shop and buy some paint for the house since the weather doesn’t look to improve over the next week! Now what colours should I go for?

    1. Blue and lemon are happy colours 🙂 That’s mostly our Algarve home. Goes nicely with the white walls. But don’t worry- the second we go the heatwave will arrive. Make the most of it, cos we’re only gone a week. 🙂

  6. Ah dear Jo, I’ll escape with you. Just looking at your beautiful photos makes me want to get on a plane right now… I hope you find peace and calm in the madness. Safe, happy travels and see you soon 🙂 xx

      1. Ha! Have a wonderful time Jo…lovely you’re all going and sure the money will hold out! I know the feeling though, too well! Huge hugs and safe, happy travels 🙂 😎 🙂 xx
