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.

At the mercy of the tide

Such a fragile ecosystem!   The tide rushes in and out each day, reshaping the shoreline with every sweep.   It’s a watery Perspective that I love.  Not all square, nor strictly Six Words, but incredibly beautiful.  Have a good weekend!

P.S. No Monday walk again.  Someone has a birthday and we will be in the Western Algarve.  Back soon!

P.P.S.  If you are viewing this on a phone or tablet the colours are too harsh.  Imagine them a little softer.

No doubt about it- shade needed!

A stroll around Loulé, enjoying the shade.  Into the 30s this weekend, so we’ll definitely need it.  Meanwhile Debbie has been having fun on Six Word Saturday.  And if you look closely I think I’ve made a few Weekend Reflections too?  Have a good one, and see you on Monday for a walk.

They choose the most majestic homes!

There were more storks than people in Faro the other day.  I looked hard for babies but it wasn’t easy to tell with all the bobbing heads.  Today Debbie is seeing triple on Six Word Saturday.  Why not join her?  Have a nice day!

Many thanks for your kind thoughts

Whenever I’m feeling distressed I have an outlet.  It’s right here, with you lovely people.  It’s a huge reason why we blog, isn’t it?  Our emotional safety net, which means we can express our doubts and fears, however foolish, however irrational, and know that we will not be harshly judged.  You are immensely kind.  My thanks to you all for giving me this space.  Meanwhile, Debbie is busy circling, with Six Words.  Happy weekend!

Being here makes my heart happy

I’m sure you can see why.  Access to the beaches in Portugal has been restored, with a few restrictions.  Happiness beckons!  Enjoy your Saturday, and don’t forget to share Six Words with Debbie.

Coffee, cake, his/hers- your choice?

I’ve spent a lot of time, just lately, up on the roof terrace.  Sue prompted me to share a cup of coffee and a book.  Debbie followed suit, with her usual flair.  And in our house, well, a little cake seldom comes amiss…  Why not join the party on Six Word Saturday!

No beach walks until June 1st!

The State of Emergency in Portugal is to be lifted from Monday, 4th May, in gradual stages.  I’m not happy that beaches won’t reopen until 1st June.

I’ll just have to make do!  There are worse places to be, and plenty of curves and clouds to play with.  2020 Photo Challenge #17

So many varieties!  Thanks, Jude!  Or you can always be playful with Debbie’s wonderful Six Words.  Either way, have a great weekend!
