This morning Pat, Gary and I headed off for a lovely stroll through the country roads near home. We feel so lucky and happy to have them available to us, to be able to avoid the highway and have the quiet and solitude, if you don’t count the barking dogs, to keep us company. LOL
This lovely plant is bursting into flower. Such a rich vibrant colour.
A close up of the flower.
Loved this tiny house we passed. Again, colour galore.
Marc had made a wonderful bean/tuna salad for lunch and so, after dining in the sunshine on the patio, we decided to head into Olhão, park and walk into the old part of town, enjoy a bica on a patio then hit the boardwalk along the sea and walk to the end. That’s exactly how it all unfolded.
The buildings in this town are pieces of art. I so love looking up and around so that I don’t miss anything.
Look at these three tourists examining a local display!!
Tiles, iron work, stone, colour…..it all comes together in such a wonderful array of styles.
This almost looks as if it’s back lit!
How I would love to see behind this door.
Thee tilework here is very appealing.
Love this tasteful little balcony.
As you can see, the attention to detail here is impeccable. Look at the yellow in the grillwork compared to the wall.
A stylish doorknocker.
I would love to be invited into this house.
Always something to see, point out, photograph.
When left alone, it becomes a canvas for Mother Nature.
I enjoyed watching these three workers……they weren’t in any hurry to move along.
A captivating corner sign for a business.
Look at these two…..you’d swear they were honeymooners!!
Mary, Baby Jesus and a boat!!!!
Enjoying the boardwalk along the sea. I wish I could describe the sounds and smells…….well maybe not all the smells!!!!
Now, is that not a determined expression?
Low tide is a good time to work on your boats.
I thought the use of pale gray and white together was quite elegant.
And so another day was wiled away doing what we do best……wandering aimlessly and thinking about our next meal.

“Wintertime (in Portugal) and the livin’ is easy!” Great day of just ‘being’ and delighting in the moments…
loved the angles you shot the balconies at, gorgeous architecture and colours. The corner sign was ingenious as well. The photo of Pat, Gary, Marc and you on the boardwalk is really lovely, very colour coordinated, particularly with the sky and water enhancing your ‘blues’. Doesn’t much get better than that! Actually, I know it will! Ha!Ha!
Really enjoying your wandering and my wondering; love your blog..xoxo
And to think…you TOO could be here!!!!
