The Algarve produces some beautiful shadows.

img_5931Just wandering, as I like to do, in the Eastern Algarve, I found myself chasing shadows in the area of Lota.  The combination of lagoon, beach and boardwalk is an enticing one.  I loved the delicacy of the shell patterns, and a chance find- a sea urchin.

The Weekly Photo Challenge has confused me a little by moving to a Wednesday.  But I didn’t let it cast a Shadow on my week.  Well, perhaps one or two!  A little like the six words that I like to share with you here on a Saturday.

Apologies in advance to those of you who walk with me on Mondays.  Next week there will be no blue sky.  Have a great weekend!

Not easy to find in Seaham?

You’d think that a bleak north eastern beach would be a good place to find a little Solitude, wouldn’t you?  Strangely enough, that isn’t the case. This particular beach has become a mecca for sea glass hunters and gatherers.   img_6644

You could hide out in the caves with a fair chance of solitude, but they’re not very safe. Erosion has created some fascinating shapes, though.

So your best bet is to head as far down the beach as you can go, without getting your feet wet, that is.  Even there, a far from home Devon artist was determinedly hunting through the pebbles, looking for sea glass.

This is the lure, at the end of the beach.  A solitary and beautiful rock, leaning out to sea. Seeking its own solitude.

There’s always a way to find solitude, if you crave it.  For me, it’s an essential part of life.  A bit like the Weekly Photo Challenge.

I hope this weekend brings you whatever you require.  Cate usually requires six words on a Saturday, but often she gets more.

How many dwarves can you name?

Walking the back streets of the Algarve, it’s amazing what you can find.  It’s simply impossible to be bored.

It’s ages since I shared any windows.  Dawn has a long running challenge, A Lingering Look at Windows.  I bet you have one or two just waiting to be shared.  And it’s always necessary to have six words handy on a Saturday.

Hope you have a good one!

Just one last ‘Presepio de Natal’

img_6061

In the hilltop village of Alferce, in Portugal’s Algarve, a gathering is taking place on the streets.

Wise men, shepherds and curious onlookers, they have come to see the Nativity scene at the heart of the village.  And who can blame them?

Isn’t it beautiful?  If graceful can be said to be “full of grace”, I think this qualifies for the Weekly Photo Challenge.  Don’t you agree?

Pop in and see Cate if you have six words to share, too.

With love, from me to you!

img_5519

It’s here and gone again, and it’s nearly time to whizz the decorations away.  I did love having my hearth flicker in candlelight, and those rosy dawns, sitting beside my Christmas tree. Usually I hang on to till twelfth night, reluctant to shed the sparkle for cold, dark mornings.  But this year I’m heading south, hoping for a little early warmth, so my tree will have to come down tomorrow.

It was fun while it lasted, wasn’t it?  But here I am, saying goodbye to the good with the bad. Wishing, as we always do, for the peace that eludes our world.  Can’t say it better than the Beatles- “With love, from me to you”.  Want to share six words?

Happy New Year!  Feel free to go walking without me on Monday.  God bless!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

img_5198

Could there be a more obvious six words for today?  I sit beside my twinkly tree, shopping done and presents wrapped.  The absence of one present troubles me.  He’s not here to share, and his place at the Christmas table can’t be filled.

Treasure your loved ones and the time spent together.  For most of us that is what Christmas is all about. I’ll eat and I’ll drink and I’ll try to be merry, and yet not burn the sprouts.  And I’ll raise a toast to you, my WordPress friends.  We’ve come a long way together.  Wishing you all a joyful Christmas, and for 2017… all you wish yourself!
