A peaceful contemplation of the night

Subtitled : Stillness when the storm has abated  It was a humdinger of a storm yesterday morning.  Exceptionally high tides flooded the centre of Tavira.  I hope calm has been restored.  Meanwhile, Debbie has a great message for us on Six Word Saturday.  Enjoy your weekend!

Spanning a river and several challenges

When Ann Christine suggests we Pick a Word on the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, I’m tempted.  But when Paula offers another five on Thursday’s Special… what’s a woman to do?  Give in, graciously!

Several bridges Span the river in Tavira, including Ponte Romana, a Roman bridge that isn’t; an uninspiring but very functional road bridge that soars across the water, and a small scale model of the same, nearing completion, to replace the former dilapidated Military Bridge.  Construction of the latter has certainly been a challenge!

One of my favourite things is sailing out of this river to the Ilha beyond.  Exuberant water fizzes and gurgles as it washes surfers and fishermen alike.  So often flat calm, I love the sight and sound of leaping waves.

Two out of ten will do for now, don’t you think?  And far too many words for Six Word Saturday!  Have a good one, everybody!

Still playing with moods, and colour

Black and white can look a bit bleak to me, but inject a hint of colour and the mood changes completely, doesn’t it?  Brian was a bit naughty with his response to Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge but I think we might have got away with it.  Meantime, strange things are happening on Six Word Saturday.  Have a great weekend, everyone!

Isn’t it all about the mood?

I was asked this week if I never go anywhere that I don’t like.  I’m usually pretty upbeat on my travels and can almost always find something beautiful to share.  But not everywhere has the same appeal, and disappointments do arise.

A dramatic poster picture of Carrasqueira at sunset promised much.  Built on stilts, over the mud flats of the Sado estuary, the fishing village enables access to their boats for the fisherfolk.  But in the bright light of day, with the tide out and a sludge of malodorous ooze, I found it hard to love.  I don’t think my camera felt the same way, do you?

Happy weekend, and don’t forget to play Six Word Saturday!

Looking out to a brighter horizon!

It has to get better, doesn’t it?  The alternative is unthinkable.  For me, the immediate future is wonderful.  My long held wish to see my son again is about to come true.  If things go to plan, he will be here tomorrow evening.  It’ll come as no surprise that I won’t be walking with you on Monday?  🙂  Hopefully, the following week.  Meanwhile, keep squaring those Perspectives and enjoy your Six Word Saturday!

If he could see the future?

This is a special place for me.  I love the outlook from this simple café, across the River Guadiana to Spain.  But more than that, it’s a place where I have a clear and vivid memory of my Dad, standing beside the soldier and smiling back at me.  I have to wonder what he would make of our world today.  From a perspective before Covid-19.

For a lighter mood, pop over to Debbie’s for a bit of Saturday shopping.  Have a good weekend!  I’ll be back with a round-up of walks on Monday.
