Home again, with just my memories!
Flying into Faro
Can it be 3 weeks since I took this shot? I love flying in, across the offshore islands, and looking out for landmarks. Planning what we’re going to do with all that time! The friends we’ll meet, the walks we’ll take, nice meals and restaurants to enjoy… Then, all too quickly, it’s gone, and I’m home again. But at least I have the blog to share a few of my memories.
First day there, I always stroll around Tavira, looking for changes and familiarising myself with ‘old friends’. This year I found myself fixated on benches! They were everywhere I looked. Jude has a lot to answer for!
Throughout the riverside gardens
There’s lots of temptation to sit
Spot the ‘deliberate’ mistake
The perfect place to look at my favourite bridge
But I really rather like this bike shot
Lots of choice today!
Even this, rather ugly duckling!
Did I hear you cry ‘enough benches!’ You have to be joking. Loads still to come. But for the sake of variety, I did spot a few other things, en route.
Like this face, on a door
This table decoration
And I know you love cakes!
I always like to check out any new shops, too. Casa da Bli on Rua da Liberdade was full of goodies- toiletries, wine and lots of pretty things.
Aren’t these lovely?
And just across the street, this handsome fellow
We listened to some excellent Fado too, at newly opened Fado com Historia. A post will follow.
A wonderful performance, at Fado com Historia
Naturally, we got out and about walking in the beautiful countryside, and I hope to entertain you with some of that in my Monday walks. But I can’t resist a snippet or two, while I’m daydreaming.
Spot any benches?
With tables too!
And awfully nice eucalyptus trees
And how about this for a view?
And a place to just sit and stare!
Of course, what Jude really wanted to see this month was black and white benches, so I have no choice but to conform. But not before I share a sunset seat.
Will this do, Jude?
For those of you not familiar with the Bench Challenge, please follow my link and all will be explained. Please conform a little more than me though. I don’t want to make Jude cross.
Meantime, have a lovely weekend. It’s a glorious Spring day here in the north east of England so it’s not so bad to be home. Please do find time to visit Cate at Show My Face and share your six words, won’t you?
