Today we hung out in Tavira with Pat’s cousin Pam and her friend Lorraine. What a great twosome and what a wonderful day!
The every smiling Lorraine and Pam.
Gary, Pam, Lorraine and Patricia….how much fun is it to connect with family far far away from home.
The day was about wandering, gabbing, shopping, gabbing, photo taking, gabbing…….you get the drift. The theme of the day for me, was colour colour and colour. I’ll let the photos do the talking.
When we arrived it felt a little windy but let me tell you, those coats disappeared very quickly. Look at the lovely lavender.
And the colour starts……
Mother Nature has a wonderful paint brush
I liked this wall hanging……..this is about half the size of a real bike.
Curly, Laurie and Mo! LOL
Delicacy and subtle shading…..
A member of the poppy family for sure.
This cluster was beautiful
I noticed this wall tile high about the second floor of an old building. I had never seen it before.
We made a trip to see Pam’s and Lorraine’s apartment…….wonderful location and quite lovely. From there we wandered towards the opposite side of the river to find a place for lunch and ended up at
Marc and I had eaten here once before and loved it, today was no exception…….great food, wonderful service and once again, a marvelous connection with another charming Portuguese restaurant owner.
Laurie had a tortilla omelette with chorizo
Gary said these breaded pork chops were delicious and plentiful.
Lorraine and Pam enjoyed this amazing looking chicken burger….I want to go back for one!!
Pat, Marc and myself had the tuna stew……..intense flavours, tender…….crying out for chunks of bread to soak up the broth.
Our happy crew minus Gary who took the snap!
And, as is always the case, a lovely walk after eating…………the town seemed busier than usual, probably a result of many things but certainly all the folks coming out and basking in the immense sunshine following our month of heavy and consistent rains.
Spring has most definitely sprung
Elegance and stories………how I’d love to explore the interior.
This was way way up on the top of an old building, almost hidden by the lip of the roof line. I love my zoom!
Don’t sit under the flowering tree with anybody else but me!!!!!!
The Roman bridge in the background………and a bunch of silly Canadians in the fore!
Same perspective but with the changing of the guard!
A grand and wonderful visit with two lovely folks……….I know that they will enjoy every moment in this beautiful place and for sure we will hang out again before they head off. In the meantime………I think Laurie is hunting for a new business to keep her occupied…..
Well, it’s not a TireCraft but hey…..potential and a great location!!.
Yup, she exchanged business cards and had a little chat………..LOL
This morning (Thursday), Laurie, Marc and myself are heading off on a five day adventure……..no blogs for the next few days as I won’t have my lap-top BUT…..wait till I get home.
