Playing around in the salt pans
The salt pans in summer fascinate. I will mostly be posting Azores in the coming weeks, but I can’t ignore the crystalline beauty on my doorstep.
It’s party time here in the Algarve. On Monday, 24th June, it will be Tavira Day and a celebration of Sáo Joáo. There are paper flowers everywhere, and music and fireworks will fill the air. I’ll be joining in, of course. Have a great weekend! But don’t forget to play with words at Debbie’s!
Azores? Impossible in just six words!
See the cone shape in the background? That’s Pico, a volcanic island with the highest mountain in Portugal. We could see it from our bedroom.
But only when the clouds rolled away
Sometimes at sunset
The main street in Velas, on Sáo Jorge
The dragon, of course!
And also in mosaic
With the noble stead
Hard to say which was my favourite island. Probably Pico or Sáo Jorge, but we had another great bedroom view from Horta, on Faial.
No Pico today! Maybe later?
Someone’s waiting patiently
Flawless beauty in nearby Porto Pim
And even more, flawless beauty!
Just the tip of the iceberg. Come to think of it, that’s a great Six Words! (or maybe, the volcano?) The captions will help. Happy Saturday!
Sharing a few memories with friends
The steam train at Barril
Street art in Castro Marim
Seen from the car window
A moggy in Alcoutim
And a worried Muscovy duck
Enormous apple dumplings- how could you forget Alte?
Mr. Stork goes fishing in Silves
‘I am here’!
Cacela Velha and a lovely couple
Far out at Fabrica
It was a great week, in excellent company. ‘We’ve been so many places, I can’t remember the names!’ The first was Fuseta. Click on the photos for a clue. And then pop over to Debbie with six words. She loves photos! Happy Saturday everybody…
Yes, I do have tranquil moments!
I don’t spend all of my life zipping about the place, though it may sometimes seem that way. Thanks for your interest in the flash mob. It was a wonderful experience and we hope to have a video on YouTube, after editing. Now I’m going for a cuppa with Debbie on Six Word Saturday. Have a great weekend!
Those white tents are up again!
The roses are awakening in the castle gardens
Remember this young man, and his Dad?
Igreja Matriz, Sao Bras, on Easter Sunday
I never tire of the view from this bridge
I can’t say it hasn’t been a busy week! Celebrating life at Easter was full of magical moments. And this weekend, Mostra da Primavera, a show celebrating Spring, with music, dance and good food. Last night we experienced spectacular Fado, by the riverside in the Mercado.
Today? Well, it’s World T’ai Chi Day, and at 10.00 this morning I will be taking part in a Flash Mob in Tavira town centre. Wish me luck! Sorry, Debbie- I couldn’t say all that in six words. I’m not ‘up to scratch’. 🙂 Happy Saturday, one and all!
Indulge yourself a little this Easter?
You can walk off the calories later! I love beautiful presentation and that raspberry really spoke to me. Just a mouthful 🙂 Happy Easter! And don’t forget to visit Debbie with six words.
Are you out of spikes yet?
It’s getting perilously close to the end of March, and you know what that means? No more Spiky Squares 😦 (and Becky can have a rest 🙂 ). The good news is, Six Word Saturday continues. Yabba Dabba Doo! Have a great weekend!
