Just a few lines, to close…

I thought I’d put together a celebration of Algarve lines before Becky calls time on the Lines and Squares challenge this month.  I found the above in a craft shop in Alte and was half-tempted to take it home.  And I love the faded mosaic patterns on the stone tables beside Fonte Pequena.

Not strictly Algarve lines, because we nipped across the border.  Fred was very taken with this tiny door in a wall in the sleepy, Spanish village of Sanlucar de Guadiana.  He couldn’t get in though.  Maybe some of Alice’s cake?  ‘Eat me!’

Back on this side of the border, I can never wander in Santa Luzia without finding something my camera likes.

And finally, a little razzamatazz in Loulé on market day.  Overkill, or what?  I’m traveling today but will try and keep up with you.  Meanwhile, for Becky, it’s a rosy End of the Line.  Many thanks to our wonderful hostess for keeping us distracted throughout October.

  1. Love the Portuguese tiled buildings. Such an original, unique application, vertically, of what most other countries readily employ, horizontally. I retain alive the vision of adorning in tiles the facade of some home we will build in the distant future. Portugal will be our hunting ground for these lovely tiles. In the meantime, thanks for the visuals!

    1. Painting on canvas, I think, Gilly, but nicely done. There were a couple by the same artist and I like the style, but I don’t really need anything else on our walls. You’ll have to come and see 🙂 🙂
