Sado Estuary

Six word Saturday

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!
