Would some kind person paint me?
Just one more aspect of Ponte Romana, Tavira but, you have to admit, those railings need a coat of paint. Join in with Becky’s October challenge, or you could be ingenious with Debbie? Happy Saturday!
What kind of clouds are these?
Gentle ones, of course! As we edge through October we might even gather a few rain clouds. That would be very kind because the land is parched. Becky is encouraging us to be kind this month, and if you can find Six Words today, Debbie will welcome you too! Have a happy Saturday!
‘How many kinds of sweet flowers grow in an English Country Garden?’ Who’d have thought I’d manage to squeeze in a visit to an Open Garden on my recent UK trip! Sleightholmedale Lodge, near Kirby Moorside, had a lovely hillside location. And cake! But I stoutly resisted. ‘
As usual, Debbie has the market cornered on six words. Why not join in? Wishing you a happy Saturday!
Many thanks to Leeds City Council for bringing so much pleasure to small boys and girls this summer. And to some of us oldies! Debbie’s having fun today too. Join her with six words? Happy Saturday!
Didn’t we have a lovely time…
What a trip! I’m back from the UK now, adjusting to Algarve temperatures. My riverside walk in Otley was a total washout, but I couldn’t stop laughing. It coincided with a day when ‘rain stopped play’ at Headingley, and folk were queuing at bus stops dressed as sharks or Batman, or whatever else took their fancy. Totally bonkers! We spent a jolly couple of hours in the pub, and dripped home.
I had a new camera and, as you may have observed, forgot to remove the date from the shots so it is indelibly printed on my mind. Another, even wetter day, was spent in a pub in Knaresborough, again in excellent company. The British fighting spirit! On my last day my phone died. Was it the weather? I am attempting to familiarise myself with a new one…. slowly!
It wasn’t all rain and we had some wonderful times, but I have far exceeded my Six Words. Lots of stories to tell. I’ll be back on Monday. Have a great weekend and make the most of your heatwave! (in Britain)
Happy birthday, Brian! Sorry I couldn’t get a cake there in time. Just a few leftovers from the Azores. Debbie and Becky both have interesting resting places today. Funny how that happens sometimes? Go and recline, and have a lovely weekend!
With the long summer evenings there was plenty of time to watch the fun develop. Tavira Day 2019 was a huge success!
The display of fireworks was spectacular! And Rui Veloso held the crowd in the palm of his hands as they crooned along with him. Debbie is celebrating Summer too, over at Six Word Saturday. Why not join her? And have a great weekend!
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!
